Talk: Sport and Society

On Monday 6 March at 5pm, the Alliance Française de Manchester welcomes Professor Simon Chadwick, who will give a talk related to our photography exhibition "Objectif Sport".

Chadwick’s presentation, in English, is entitled: "More than just a Game? How sport influences business, politics and society".

Simon Chadwick, whose research focuses on the commercial, managerial and geo-political aspects of sport, teaches Sport Enterprise at the University of Salford; his views are frequently quoted in the international media, including the Wall Street Journal, The Financial Times and Le Monde and he has been rated by The Independent newspaper as one of the top ten business tweeters in the UK. Come along to his talk to hear an interesting insight into the links between sport and society as a whole.
