Ep. 22 - Stephen Duckitt

Updated: Oct 13, 2020

"The most exciting thing here is I have a blank canvas. We have a fairly youthful team and part of my remit is to take everything that I've learned from traveling around the world to sporting events and running my own and helping create a new product for World Table Tennis."

Stephen Duckitt describes it as a blank canvas on which to make art as he works to develop the newly formed World Table Tennis as its Head of Event Strategy. With a remit to operate a tour of events around the world, Stephen is involved as the start-up determines everything from rankings to optimal seating manifests at its events during this phase of its infancy. Stephen, whose background is in professional tennis in communications and as tournament director of events in China, shares both the opportunities and the obstacles that come with creating a brand-new organization.
