“We were blown away. I tend to go to a fair amount of industry bashes and this was by far the most inspiring and most fun I’ve had. It is also a big reason why our sports group has decided to become more actively involved in women’s sport.
Julian Moore, Pinsent Masons

Why is women’s sport relevant to business?

Women and women’s sport is a business, economic and social priority. Women are 50% of the population, workforce, consumers and audience – smart brands recognise the value of being inclusive.

  • Engagement with women’s sport is a proof point and a differentiator. In a noisy marketplace it helps you to stand out as a credible, inclusive brand
  • Women’s sport tells great stories about talent, leadership and development that are directly relevant to business
  • Athletes make powerful role models, raise aspirations and engage audiences – they help you to reach target markets and clients
  • Women’s sport can appeal to the talent you want to attract. Research indicates a strong link between top businesswomen and playing sport

“It was our absolute pleasure [to be an Awards sponsor], I hope you were delighted with how it went. A fabulous evening with super feedback from our guests”
Nathan Homer, Barclays
