Sport needed an independent networking organisation to bring the industry together – Nigel Fletcher, SDM

Sport is big business and networking is key for individuals and organisations in the global sports industry.

Nigel Fletcher runs Sports Development Marketing (SDM), which has launched the International Sports Chamber of Commerce, which holds events in London, Lausanne and New York to name but a few.

"I set up SDM in 2009 after five years at FIFA because I believed there was a void in the business to business networking and events space globally.

"I had a vision to bring all the different components of the sports industry together from both a commercial and development perspective.

"I also felt that the industry needed an independent organisation to do this, so SDM was set up and we embarked upon this journey."
