|Description||The first episode of season 2 of the Great British Bosses series from Anything but Footy profiles the women and men responsible for sport in this country - many at national governing bodies - who manage teams, staff, budgets, grass-root participation and overseeing those medal moments at Olympic, Paralympic and elite level. But as they start season two, thyey wanted to find out more about the grassroots of sport - and try and work out who's really responsible for getting us off the sofa! Sport England play that role! CEO Tim Hollingsworth effectively swapped medals for movement - after 7 glorious years at Paralympics GB including 2 Summer and 2 Winter Games. He guided and helped the transformation of Para sport, and the public's perception of it, during London 2012 through to Pyeongchang 2018, the most successful ever Winter Paralympics for Great Britain. He discusses the challenges of taking over Sport England, its groundbreaking #THISGIRLCAN campaign and whether some simplification of British sport maybe needed in this new digital age!|
