I am constantly amazed by the combination of practical knowledge sharing and highly entertaining content in these episodes. Sean's network of sports professionals is remarkable and you can't help but marvel at the life he has carved out…. such an interesting niche. He's a top bloke and I'd recommend him to anyone interested in the intersection of business and sport.
