Leading Expert Kristian Gotsch Joins The Academy Conference!

The Academy conference is proud to announce that Kristian Gotsch has joined The Academy team. Kristian, Client Services Director (EMEA) for Two Circles, is a leading voice on the use of Data & CRM in sport. He will be opening The Academy, to be held on June 7-8 in Lausanne, Switzerland, by discussing how sports organisations can best use data to secure new partners and provide new means of financial income.

Kristian joined Two Circles in 2014, helping sports organisations to build stronger relationships with their customers through the use of data. Kristian currently leads Two Circles international presence in Switzerland and oversees the quality and innovation of all Two Circles work in mainland Europe.

Prior to joining Two Circles, Kristian spent many years developing and running data and CRM projects with the likes of T-Mobile, Microsoft and PwC, and spent 6 years at the Dutch Premier League (Eredivisie) running all data, insight and CRM projects at both league level and together with individual clubs.

Kristian joins the already impressive list of speakers that have thus far been announced, including Steve Madincea, Founder and Group Managing Director of PRISM, Richard B. Stephenson, Founding Partner of TrueNorth Consulting, and Dennis Landsbert-Noon, Managing Director and Chairman of Sports Practice of Burson-Marsteller EMEA, all leading experts in their respective fields.

Upon confirmation of his participation at The Academy, Kristian said: ‘I am very excited to be joining The Academy. Sports organisations are increasingly using data and insight to better engage with their audiences and partners. I am looking forward to sharing cases and provide concrete recommendations on how to use data to realise commercial growth.'

More Organisations Sign up for The Academy!

The Academy has reaffirmed its appeal this year as participants from a range of sports organisations from around the world have registered – including the International Olympic Committee, Sport Event Denmark, World Union of Olympic Cities, the Italian Olympic Committee, ASOIF and the Crown Prince’s Court of Abu Dhabi. Because of its limited capacity, participants at The Academy will gain a great opportunity to network and learn from one another, as well as the Speakers.
