In order to produce an exciting, relevant and truly unique event agenda for our San Francisco (30-31st Jan) and London (22-23rd May) summits, the Sports Innovation Network combines months of research with an intense consultation period with an elite advisory board. Our events are deliberately a forum for the cross-pollution of ideas between different sports and this is reflecting in our growing advisory board. This board currently includes:
