When discussing good governance, many of the principles are those we already know and should practice in daily life. Let’s share best practices and examples of ways to ensure ethical, efficient, and effective behavior amongst all those involved in sport leadership.

Five Rings of Marketing
In traditional marketing product, place, price and promotion are the 4 P’s of the marketing mix. In the Olympic Movement, marketing revolves around athletes/teams, journalists/broadcasters, sponsors/licensees, event organizers/host cities, and consumers. Explore the interrelationships between these marketing components and how to maximize opportunities for all.
