VSI and strategic partner Downtown in Business is delighted to welcome Kevin Roberts, the former Chief Executive of global media and marketing giant Saatchi and Saatchi, to the University of Salford for a master class in cutting-edge leadership in the world of sport and business.

The former Lancaster Grammar School boy’s CV highlights just why the likes of legendary South African President, Nelson Mandela, the Pentagon, the European Union and New Zealand All Blacks have all turned to him for advice.

A glittering business career was capped by an astonishing reign in charge of Saatchi and Saatchi but he was instrumental in knocking the spots off Coke during a remarkable spell as CEO for Pepsi Cola in Canada and the Middle East and revelled as a leading protagonist for the highly regarded Proctor and Gamble brand.

Roberts has always had a passion for sport, serving on the boards of both New Zealand Football and the New Zealand Rugby Football Union and was first introduced to VSI’s Master’s Degree in Sporting Directorship four years ago.
