Have a look at the big sports in this country and how many women run them? How many women make those long lists to even have a shot at some of those jobs?
I truly don’t believe that women have a shot at those. At this moment in time, I’m running one of the most successful sports in this country. My name wouldn’t have appeared on any of those lists.”
In The Game Changers podcast this week it’s Jo Adams, current CEO at England Netball.
During Jo’s nine years with the National Governing Body she’s generated extensive sponsorship and media coverage for the sport, driven huge increases in participation, delivered a home World Cup… and seen England win Gold at the Commonwealth Games.
Jo leaves England Netball this month to become the first Chief Commercial Officer at the London Legacy Development Corporation (LLDC), where she’ll help realise the commercial potential of London’s Olympic Park and venues, including London Stadium.
