Lynn Naude is one of the most significant figures in not just local sporting circles but also on the international stage.

Having worked both abroad and most recently as the CEO of the Absa Cape Epic she’s now part of the executive management team delivering the new Global League T20 to South Africa later this year.

In Episode Six of the Power of Sport podcast, host Jean Smyth sits down with her to find out about her current role, what inspires her and how she in turn advises those wishing to follow in her footsteps, plus also the story of how she started in her field.

“The trigger for me to get involved in the sporting world was actually Jerry Maguire. I watched Jerry Maguire and I wanted to be Jerry Maguire. When I look back 20 years I’m not Jerry Maguire but I did manage to dabble a little bit in the sports agents world and decided to and decided that there’s a much bigger world (in sport) out there.”

Bafana Bafana midfielder Dean Furman joined us at the latest of our sporting themed breakfast series in conjunction with partner Mercedes Benz in Centurion. Guests were treated to unique insights from Furman along with Gordon Igesund, Desiree Ellis and Amanda Dlamini.
