CURRENT ISSUE - JULY 2015: EVENTS

The theme of the July issue of Velocity is events, and as Wimbledon serves up another two weeks of thrills, we look at the career of Andy Murray, both on and off court, as he develops significant business interests outside of his workload on the international tennis circuit. We also talk to Melvin Benn, the man behind Festival Republic, which produces some of the UK and Ireland's largest and most popular music festivals, including Latitude, Reading, Leeds and Ireland's iconic Electric Picnic. We also focus on Richard Dodgson, owner and creative director of Timebased Events, and Gustav Temple, founder of the quirky Chap Olympiad, held in London every July. On the business front, we examine the concept of leadership and whether those often nominally in charge of an enterprise are the real leaders, and look at the effects of embracing change.
