No Holds Barred: April 2017

No Holds Barred is the podcast from SB Weekly where three leading sports executives reveal their industry bugbears, question accepted wisdom, and try to make sense of the major developments currently impacting the global business of sport.

This month's edition features Matt Rogan (Chairman of Two Circles and Executive Director at ESP Properties), Simon Banoub (Global Director of Marketing at Catapult Sports) and Richard Gillis (Founder of Unofficial Partner).

Topics discussed include:

  • Why technology rarely solves rights-holder problems, and can actually cause more damage than good 
  • How and why the media needs to be more responsible when building stories around data
  • Why 'passion' has become the default focus for lazy sponsorship activations.
