The global political situation has changed completely since February 24, 2022 - to a significant extent, of course, in Europe. Many people did not think it possible that there would be another war of this magnitude in Europe. Neither did I. The war in Ukraine has also had an impact on the sports industry. From Chelsea, to Formula 1, from sporting events and the exclusion of Russian athletes and teams from leagues and sporting events. How the sanctions against Russia will impact other areas of the sports and fitness industry in the coming months remains to be seen.
In March, my summer semester starts with a whole series of interesting courses.
The Football Industry course will focus on the industry's stakeholders, their business models and projects in the national and international soccer business. The digitalization but especially the corona crisis of the past. 2years has changed the soccer business globally. We take a look at the stakeholders and their new or adapted business models and venture an outlook on what could lie ahead for the industry.
In the international course of Managing Fitness & Recreationnal Markets we will start with an introduction to the topic of fitness and health and we will also look at the health challenges of societies and which business models can arise from this. Finally, we will devote quality management in fitness & health to the service idea and process management.
Not only talking about fitness, but also becoming active ourselves. That's why I'll be back in action at the Hyrox Event Frankfurt at the end of April. The Hyrox Event, which calls itself a fitness event for all, is an excellent combination of functional training and endurance.
I would like to give a small preview of the summer of 2022, when the "Lectures by the Lake" will take place in Görlitz at Lake Bertzdorf, a compact seminar in an inspiring environment directly at the lake. The topic this summer is Leadership with as focus on sustainability, social performance and change management.
I wish everyone a good start to the week and a safe place to be
With best regards and wishes
