With almost 30 years experience in the sports marketing industry especially around sponsorship, there are few people more knowledgeable about the subject. Which is why we wanted to chat to him. To get an insight into what any sport's team, schools, and event's organising committees should be doing to secure sustainable sponsorship.

    We also chat to him about the National Premier Hockey League to find out how they got that off the ground and what it would take to do the same in water polo.
