    The good, the bad & the messy with Sam Squiers

    The good, the bad & the messy with Sam Squiers

    Journalist Sam Squiers has always been passionate about women’s sport – however, the media outlets she has worked for have not always shared her enthusiasm. So in 2014, Sam decided to build her own. Sportette launched as a news platform to highlight the incredible stories of women in sport, but as it grew and those same media outlets started mining it for ideas, Sportette morphed into a think tank and consultancy for sporting organisations wanting to improve their approach to gender equality.

    After over a decade working with some of Australia’s leading media including Channel Nine, Fairfax, Channel 7, Sky News and Southern Cross Austereo, Sam’s expertise in women’s sport is now highly sought after by organisations such as the NRL, Golf Australia and the Queensland Rugby League. She also hosts the podcast On Her Game, is the author of a picture book, Princesses Wear Sneakers, and the proud mum of two little girls who love pink as much as they love being active.

    Please enjoy the latest episode as I chat with Sam about equality in sport (and the media), sharing difficult stories about motherhood and her weirdest fear.

    “Perseverance will always trump talent" with Ed Cowan

    “Perseverance will always trump talent" with Ed Cowan

    Welcome back to 2021! In the spirit of it being summer in Australia and cricket dominating the sporting headlines, I am delighted to be bringing you my chat with former Australian test cricketer, Ed Cowan.

    I’ve always been fascinated by how elite athletes manage the transition out of sport and into new careers, and my guest for this episode has a lot to say on that topic.

    Ed Cowan is a former Australian test cricketer who made his debut for New South Wales in 2005 before going onto be selected for the Australian national team that played in India in the 2011 Boxing Day test. During his almost sixteen-year, first class cricket career, Ed played 18 Tests for Australia, scored 10,097 runs and wrote a book called, In the Firing Line, Diary of a Season. But Ed knew all along that sport is not a lifelong career. Along the way, he started a business with a teammate as a kind of “real life MBA” – Tripod Coffee, offering Nespresso-compatible coffee pods that are environmentally friendly.

    When Ed made the decision to retire from the game in 2018, having a business certainly helped, but he says it was still a challenging time. He didn’t want cricket to be the defining moment of his life, which led him to ask the question of himself, ‘what’s my next act?’ The experience also gave him an insight into the vast number of athletes who struggle mentally and emotionally with that transition and has fuelled a desire to do more in this space to help others

    While Ed called time on his professional playing career in March 2018 he is still involved in the game as a commentator for ABC Grandstand and as a Board Director at Cricket NSW. He is also a member of the team at private investment firm, TDM Growth Partners and host of the podcast, Scaling Up!

    Flicking off the fear switch with Jaimie Fuller

    Flicking off the fear switch with Jaimie Fuller

    Honesty in sport and purity of competition are what drive my guest for this episode, and he practices what he preaches. Jaimie Fuller is the former executive chairman of global sportswear brand, SKINS, making waves last year when he released a heartfelt mea culpa announcing the Switzerland-based company’s bankruptcy. Through Jaimie’s leadership, SKINS became a prominent defender of ethics in sport, speaking out – and loudly – about doping in cycling and making headlines for withdrawing sponsorship from the Melbourne Storm rugby team following the team’s salary cap scandal.

    Jaimie has continued to be a frank and vocal advocate for fundamental change in sports governance since leaving SKINS, spearheading several change initiatives including #NewFIFANow, which aims to call FIFA to account for its record of corruption and rebuild the organisation anew. He is a regular media commentator and has spoken at public forums across the world on how brands can influence positive change in sport. I hope you’ll join us for this frank – and fairly sweary! – discussion.

    Read Jaimie’s farewell to SKINS here.
