Video highlights from our masterclass on Better Governance. Better Consequence. Reply

During our masterclass in London on 23 February, Professor Simon Lee, Professor of Law at The Open University (OU), explored the links between governance and sport. Professor Simon Lee made the case that governance isn’t about being the referee, it’s about being the goalkeeper. Being able to take a step back from the central action allows businesses to anticipate potential risks and make a strategic plan.

Professor Lee used examples from the sport and business worlds to explain how:

  • Governance is an attitude of mind rather than a particular process;
  • Trust and responsibility are key to corporate governance success;
  • Anticipating change and making appropriate adaptations will stand businesses in better stead;
  • It is important to account for the fact there will always be situations businesses cannot plan for.

During the masterclass, Professor Lee was joined by Pete Winkelman, Chairman of MK Dons FC, who spoke about regulation in football, and Etienne Stott MBE, Olympic Gold Medallist (Canoe Slalom) from London 2012, who showed how the governance of his sport created the structure for success. Video highlights are available:
