GPS Blog #3 – March 17th 2020

March 16th saw our last Guinness Six Nations episode of the ‘Ruck It!’ series released across all popular streaming platforms. The series of podcasts analysed each weeks round of Six Nations fixtures and results, along with some light-hearted rugby banter from hosts Kyran Bracken and Nick Easter.

We’re really pleased with how well-received ‘Ruck It!’ has been, with a steadily increasing audience number with content picked up mainstream British media. Both Kyran and Nick thoroughly enjoyed themselves and we look forward to launching another series in the future.

In other news, the developments of COVID-19 has stunned the world. Our client, scientist and decision-making expert, Liv Boeree spoke on BBC Radio about the cognitive biases affecting people’s reasoning around the virus, and examined the risk and probability of the outcomes of this pandemic for mankind.

Here at GamePlan we wish everyone well during this period of uncertainty.

Blog Post #2 – ‘RuckIt!’

We’re delighted to be working alongside Listening Dog Media in the ongoing production of new rugby podcast ‘Ruck It!’

Ruck It!, hosted by our client Kyran Bracken and Nick Easter, takes a lively look into all things rugby and the current Six Nations tournament. We’re three episodes in and the shows have been widely well-received and praised. The BBC’s pregame coverage of the Calcutta Cup match gave the pod a plug as well as quotes from the guys picked up by The Times, Daily Mirror and other media outlets.

Our network in this space has allowed us to procure great names as special guests, including; Scott Hastings, Martin Offiah and Serge Betsen.

Here at GamePlan we’ve hit the ground running for 2020.

Our long-standing client David Seaman and his wife Frankie appeared on BBC’s hit show Pointless Celebrities, pitting their ‘Pointless’ knowledge against the fellow sporting contestants!

Supporting our friends at the BBC, GamePlan arranged for former Quins captain and England international Nick Easter to film with them in the Twickenham changing rooms for a 6 Nations
preview show. Nick recalled his fond memories of his playing days and the rivalry between the English and the Welsh.

Elsewhere Darren Campbell’s ‘Inside Track’ BBC 5 Live show covered off a nice range of topics including the ECB’s The Hundred, boxing stories and goings on in the world of athletics.

The first week of January also saw our client, AstrophysicistLiv Boeree travel to Shanghai China to deliver a keynote for a high-profile technology company. Liv’s keynote on the science behind decision and risk taking continues to be well-received and engaging.

GamePlan are really excited about the upcoming year and look forward to what it brings.
