City boss to speak in Lausanne

Glasgow City Club Manager Laura Montgomery heads off to Switzerland today to speak at the WISE conference in Lausanne.

The City boss was approached last year by the organisers following her successful TEDx Talk in Glasgow and will be discussing setting up and running Glasgow City, employing Scotland’s first full time Head Coach and professional players along with her passion for gender equality in sports.

The Work in Sports Exhibition attracts some of the most famous faces in sport and Laura will be speaking amongst a range of distinguished contributors including athletics legend Colin Jackson, Manuel Zubiria, Head of Projects at AS Roma, Gregory Renard, Head of Sponsorship at Zurich Insurance Group, Guy-Laurent Epstein, Head of Marketing at UEFA, Simon Cooper, Head of Sport at the City of London and Mario Andrada, Communication Director for RIO 2016 Olympic Games to name only a few of those taking part.

The conference is a huge boost for Laura to be able to spread the good work of our club around Europe and we wish her the best of luck.
