The Heraean Kicks Off With a Bang!

The London Sporting Club launched our Women in Sport and Business Club, The Heraean, last night in Mayfair with a drinks reception and stellar discussion panel convened by TV sports anchor Jill Douglas. Barbara Slater, Head of BBC Sport, Vicky Gosling, CEO Invictus Games and former Olympic 400m champion Christine Ohuruogu made up a fantastic panel to discuss the changing environment - much for the better - for women in sport, the issues and challenges still faced and the way forward in front of a packed Club Room at Morton's of other movers and shakers in the business of sport. Other top sports stars present included Crista Cullen (GB Hockey Olympic gold medallist), Louise Hazel (Commonwealth Heptathlon gold medallist), former England women's cricket star turned commentator Isa Guha and Paralympic gold medallist Georgie Bullen, plus former F1 driver Mark Blundell.
