Anne Merklinger, CEO, Own The Podium
"MGSS completed a complex review of nutritional supplement practices on behalf of Own The Podium and other partners who deliver high performance sport in Canada. Their work was exceptional, on-time, and offered well-supported recommendations. A strength of McLaren’s approach was their collaboration with key stakeholders which helped to identify areas of consensus and buy-in. This included perspectives from athletes, coaches, national sport organizations, athlete medical staff, and sport institutes and centres that are part of our high performance system across Canada. We are in a stronger position today as a result of this Review. "
Kevin McDonald, Senior Vice-President, Football Operations, CFL
"This was a significant and important undertaking for the CFL and MGSS delivered a great piece of work; all of the reporting was thorough and exactly what we were looking for to help inform our amateur football strategy moving forward. We are very encouraged by the opportunities that MGSS has clearly articulated for the League and our Clubs."
Paul Melia, President and CEO, CCES
CCES partnered with MGSS to host the first national symposium on match manipulation and gambling in sport which took place in Toronto in 2019. Their international reputation in the sport integrity field and their extensive network of experts around the world allowed us to deliver an exceptional event. MGSS’ professional approach to organizing the symposium, together with their team’s invaluable knowledge and expertise of the subject matter, made for a winning combination. It was an absolute pleasure to work with MGSS.
Ryan Bowd, Director of Education, Josoor Institute
"In 2014 the Josoor Institute, in partnership with McLaren Global Sport Solutions designed and delivered a two-day professional development workshop 'The Law and its Implications for Sports and Event Practitioners'. In delivering this programme, we could not have asked for a higher quality partner than MGSS. The quality and professionalism of their work was second to none. They worked tirelessly and collaboratively to ensure the relevance of the team that they put forward and the content we delivered for MENA region. As a result the participants both Qatari and international delegates, with both legal and non-legal backgrounds, all remarked on the learnings and how they would be helpful in practice from the joint programme. Without a doubt, we would want to work with MGSS again on future programmes and initiatives in this space."
Peter Baxter, Director of Athletics, Wilfrid Laurier University
"Student-Athlete and Athletic Department policies are only as good as the knowledge and comprehension of these policies by your athletes, coaches, and staff which are vital factors related to compliance. SI360 was a valuable tool to: identify gaps between policy and understanding by our athletes, coaches, and staff at WLU; a way to assess the strength of current policies; and a baseline to address our education/training programs."
