As Director of Strategy and Education at UK Anti-Doping, I had the privilege of hosting a three day conference at Wilton Park, with attendees from around the world. I had the pleasure of interviewing Sir Hugh, who was the keynote speaker. Hugh was the Minister responsible for delivering the Olympics and the Olympic legacy, and went on, as an FCO Minister, to work on the Middle East Peace initiative and the Geneva peace process to try and end the war in Syria. Hugh is now the Chair of the British Olympic Association And Camelot (the organisation that runs the National Lottery) so had amazing insights about all things sport and foreign diplomacy.
A brilliant chance to meet a very inspiring man, and to connect with people from around the world to discuss integrity in sport and sport as a tool for foreign diplomacy.
