September/October 2016

With the summer Olympics in the rear-view (and what a view it was!), it’s time to turn our attention what’s ahead. How do we grow the sports we have, and how do we use best practices in business? In this issue, we review what people will be talking about (gymnastics and cycling, for instance, along with water sports) and looking ahead (softball will be included in the 2020 Games.) And there’s always time to sharpen our skills in business, and articles on security, transportation options, negotiations, long-term contracts and more will help you do that. Turn the page and start your learning experience.
