Recommended by: James Craig, Head of Commercial

Why did you recommend this podcast?

“James Hope-Gill is the CEO of Skateboard GB. James has a background in football and has been the CEO of Sheffield & Hallamshire County FA. Since 2017 he is working for Skateboard GB and leads the development of this new Olympic sport in the U.K.

Listen to this for an insight into the world of sports management, with what I think is a sensitive and considerate account of being a CEO for an NGB with huge potential. Talking about being the curators of the sport and embracing the unique lifestyle of the sport. A real glimpse into an exciting new Olympic Sport.”


Every week a member of the BF Team will recommend a podcast. The subject matter will vary (but will be related to sport!) so we hope that over the weeks there will be something for all our members, no matter where their interest or involvement in fencing lies.
