From his vantage point of CEO of the ICSS, Michael contemplates the role of sport from refugee camps to the Olympic games. He advocates geting back to the spirit of sport by teaching children fair-play and integrity at grass roots level.

Michael Hershman has long investigated corruption. From Watergate to co-founding Transparency International, to FIFA.

Recently appointed as Group CEO to the International Centre for Sport Security (ICSS), his expertise is globally recognised in a number of fields, including ethics, transparency and security.
