States Christine Bjerkan, Founder and MD at Equerry / Co:

Our focus on introducing a rich mix of cross-platform content for all those we work with by shining a light on the diverse range of disciplines, events and talent our industry harbors, will be furthered by this partnership.

If anything, this partnership is promoting aspects of our industry that for a long time have been neglected or even taken for granted, and as our industry and sport forever comes under scrutiny, inclusivity is the only way forward. We’re not here to just talk the talk – we’re walking the walk.”
