‘Tales from the Top’ – Di Ellis talks to the SRA

The Sport & Recreation Alliance have launched a new blog featuring a series of interviews with people at the very top of sport’s administrative sector. 

Rowing’s Executive Chairman, Di Ellis CBE, was invited to be the first contributor.  As well as a summary of Di’s career since she first fell in love with rowing over fifty years ago, she talks about her long-term aims for the sport and how she set about to achieve them. 

There are some fascinating insights to Di’s style of leadership and the lessons she has learnt from over 20 years at the top of a sport that is currently number one in the world on the water.
