Episode notes

Fiona Morgan is Sail GP’s director of purpose and impact, who's driving the championship’s commitment to a better future and a better sport.

She's been instrumental in creating the pioneering ‘impact league’, Sail GP’s world first initiative to make sustainability essential to the fabric of sport.

With nearly 20 years’ experience in the sports industry, Fi has an exceptional track record of shaping social impact strategy and delivering campaigns for some of the world's most high-profile sports brands.  She's worked with a host of global athletes throughout her career from tennis legend Chris Everett, through to David Beckham and Bradley Wiggins, and was also responsible for developing the commercial strategy for the London 2012 Olympic games. 

Fi believes deeply in the power of sport to drive wellbeing and to ensure a better world.

We explore sustainability developments at Sail GP and they are also impacting other sports and what’s being done for gender equality in sailing and more widely across sports.

Fi talks openly about her own career in commercial sports and how she finds balance as a senior woman who’s also raising a young family along, with sitting on various boards including The Hundred’s Manchester Originals.
