Mark McCormack in his inspiring lecture at Oxford University in October 1993.
"Business Age said in 1994: 'McCormack invented the sports business. It was he who first realized that, within the golden triangle of sport, sponsorship and television, lay vast wealth, just waiting to be tapped.'"
In this lecture McCormack talks about:

- The start of IMG and how it evolved as a business
