SportsPro senior contributor Matt Rogan talks to Jane Purdon, the chief executive of Women in Football, and former head of governance and leadership at UK Sport and director of governance at the Premier League.
They discuss some of the best ways to think about governance as a means of responsibly exercising power, listening to a more diverse range of voices, and working effectively to meet fundamental challenges. The conversation covers some of the best governance structures for different types of sports organisation, lessons in governance from the pandemic and soccer’s collapsed Super League, and how everything comes down to people.
