Our Expertise: Sport, Media & Entertainment

In the digital era of constant change, media companies need to be agile, creative and able to adapt in order to succeed. The shift in power from distributors of content to consumers is leading to innovative business models and the need to develop deeper consumer insights is greater than ever before. This has prompted companies to ask the tough questions about their product offerings, business models, organisational models and everything in between. In the sporting world, where success is becoming more and more aligned with profitability and tangible commercial achievement, attracting the right calibre of people, with the correct knowledge and a precise track record, has become vital to business success. It is increasingly essential that management teams have the right skill set to implement business strategies that will enable growth and development. Media, entertainment conglomerates and sports bodies need leaders with the experience and perspective that will enable them to identify new revenue sources and predict and adapt to consumers’ rapidly changing needs.
