BBC Sport director, Barbara Slater OBE, is set to speak at the next SVG Europe Women virtual event, being held on Wednesday 10 June at 4pm.

Focusing on the return to live sport, the session titled, ‘BBC Sport: Barbara Slater discusses the return to live sport in a post-lockdown world’, Slater will talk about where BBC Sport is right now as it puts together a strategy to safely bring back live sports production.

The conversation will also cover how the coronavirus pandemic has affected and influenced how the corporation’s sports department will move forward into the rest of this year and beyond.

Slater – winner of the SVG Europe Women Achievement Award 2020 – will be interviewed by head of SVG Europe Women and editor at SVG Europe, Heather McLean.

Starting at 4pm (UK time), this virtual meet-up is designed to bring members of the SVG Europe Women community together for just 30 minutes, enabling attendees to take a break from their busy locked down lifestyles.

This event will include a Q&A during which the best of the audience questions posted live during the interview will be answered by Slater.

SVG Europe Women’s second virtual event will again be delivered through Zoom.
