This is Moneyball: Does it pay to have a motivational speaker give team talks and how do you manage a star player?
How important is being able communicate effectively and calmly as a leader? This is Money assistant editor Lee Boyce and broadcaster Georgie Frost have Steve Sallis, founder of Solutions Mindset, in the studio this week for secrets on how to give team talks and man manage troublesome 'star' players. Elsewhere, Nike saw more than a billion dollars wiped of its value after new Duke College basketball star Zion Williamson – dubbed the new LeBron – saw his shoe 'explode' just 30-odd seconds into a match-up against North Carolina. Former President of the United States, Barack Obama was there and tickets were selling for five-figure sums. We have self-confessed sneaker geek George Sullivan, chief executive of Sole Supplier, to tell us about the impact, and how important sports endorsement deals are now for consumers. And our question of the week: is it fair that Wimbledon are offering hospitality tickets to ladies final for £1,550 a pop – but for the men's final, it's almost three times the price?
