Nic Couchman and Darren Bailey take part in ‘Changing investment models in international sport’ conference in Lausanne

Charles Russell Speechlys would like to thank the City of Lausanne, Olympic Capital, and Burson Marsteller Sport for their confidence and for having asked them to hold a conference on new investment models and integrity in sport at the Maison du Sport International yesterday.

Drawing on Charles Russell Speechlys' experience in this field, including advising the ITF on its partnership with Kosmos for the Davis Cup reform, Nic Couchman and Darren Bailey discussed the real benefits and drawbacks of these new investment models for International Federations, how sports bodies can best adapt and prepare for new types of investment and how reshaping such a model impacts upon key issues of integrity for an International Federation.

Many thanks to all International Federations present for their active participation.
