Ger McTavish,

National GAA Diversity & Inclusion Officer, Sport Scientist & Performance Coach 

***

Welcome back everyone to Episode 56.

In this episode i was lucky enough to chat to the phenomenal Ger McTavish . 

Ger has been at the heart of some fantastic development work within a number of National Governing bodies ( GAA, Special Olympics Ireland, IABA, Dublin GAA to name a few!)  in recent years and has drawn on her unique and wide ranging experience to have a really profound impact on their progress. 

From her salt of the earth roots in Connemara right through to her current role with the GAA as the ONLY Diversity & Inclusion Officer in a Governing body in the world she has been a positive influence everywhere she has gone. 

This is one of our longest episodes folks as we just got into so many great tangents of discussion so give yourself a couple of days to enjoy and keep the kettle and a fresh notebook close by .!
