Anything but Footy: Great British Bosses - Sara Sutcliffe, Table Tennis

This is Great British Bosses by Anything but Footy. We profile the women and men responsible for sport in this country - many at national governing bodies - who manage teams, staff, budgets, grass-root participation and overseeing those medal moments at Olympic, Paralympic and elite level.

This week, we catch up with Table Tennis England Chief Executive Sara Sutcliffe. The sport was in desperate need of leadership and a re-brand when she took over six years ago and along with her team, Sara's made sure it's now fit for purpose and encouraging participation across the country. We also discuss women in sport, particularly behind the scenes and the need for parity, how she was one of the first ten people to work on the London 2012 Olympic bid in her former role at Team GB and just how important for the sport Will Bayley's Strictly turn might be!

And if there's someone who you think is a Great British Boss - and would make a good podcast - please free to get in touch on twitter @AnythingbutF and using the hashtag #GBBosses or contact us through our website
