Business Perspectives logo

Join us for our next Business Perspectives event focusing on Governance on Thursday 23 February 2017, 12:00 – 17:00 with lunch and networking drinks and canapés reception afterwards, at Crowne Plaza The City, London.

In this masterclass, Professor Simon Lee will base his presentation on latest current affairs in the sporting world. We will explore multiple facets of governance and how, in an ever changing world, sport and business have similar qualities. Professor Lee will also explain how lessons from sport may be applied across business.

Chairman of MK Dons, Pete Winkelman, will be speaking on sport and business in his presentation: 'Regulation in Sport - Time and Money'.

Olympic Gold Medallist, Etienne Stott MBE, will be drawing on his unique experience in his presentation: 'Governance in the Goldilocks Zone: The Structure of Success'.

In this session you will broaden your knowledge on governance rules, structure and regulations, which may help you and your organisation improve ways of working.

Pete moved to Milton Keynes in 1993 and established Great Linford Manor as one of Europe’s leading residential recording studios following a successful and varied career in the music industry in London. Whilst in Milton Keynes and inspired by the footballing exploits of his son, Bobby, Pete has worked tirelessly with the public and private sectors to deliver the new city’s 30-year ambition to host professional league football and develop a landmark multi-purpose sports and spectators events complex. The resulting stadiummk is the new home of MK Dons FC, of which Pete is Chairman. In 2013, The Open University awarded Pete with an Honorary Doctorate to mark his contribution to education through the world of professional football.
