EP127: Dr. Matteo Tassi - CIES

This week, we stay with our global theme on The DOC & The GURU Podcast, as we chat with Dr. Matteo Tassi, Head of Executive Education at CIES in Switzerland (International Centre for Sports Studies). In another very interesting and far-reaching episode, we start with the important, wider societal role that Matteo and his team are playing in sports education.

He recently spoke on a webinar, 'Beyond the Pitch', on the deep concern about players’ welfare after they retire and the development of CIES’ latest programme, 'The Next 90'. Here he is working with FIFA and former professional football players to manage their transition from the world of professional sport and to design their future, with a second career. So, to hear more about this human-centric and collaborative approach and its early success, don’t miss our episode this week - (both the webinar and details of this programme, can be accessed on the CIES website).

Matteo also goes on to discuss some of the contemporary issues of player welfare in sport, stresses the importance of ongoing education and shares some interesting insights into innovation and disruption from his recent studies at the very prestigious Stanford Graduate School of Business, and closes with some fantastic career advice.

Again, be in the know and listen to The DOC & The GURU Podcast for free!
