Australian sports stars joined James Begley for a discussion about sports marketing and branding at the Mumbrella Sports Marketing Summit 2016.

The panel:

- Ed Cowan, cricketer, former Test batsman
- Sharni Layton, Australian Diamonds netballer
- Carol Cooke, Paralympian
- Mark Mathews, big wave surfer
- James Begley (moderator), PickStar founder, Rooster Radio co-host, former AFL footballer

It was a fascinating and insightful chat with intelligent and thoughtful athletes. There's a lot to learn here about their worlds, and how brands and the community can best engage them. Among the issues discussed:

- Sexualising female stars
- Sponsorship and funding issues for Paralympians
- Cricket Australia "controlling" player brands
- Creating compelling content with athletes
- How to best utilise athlete ambassadors
- Much more!
