As we gear up for CNBC x Boardroom’s Game Plan conference this summer, let’s learn more about one of the event’s featured speakers, Stuart Duguid.

In a first-of-its-kind partnership, CNBC, First in Business Worldwide, and Boardroom, Kevin Durant and Rich Kleiman’s premier media brand covering the business of sports, music, and entertainment, are teaming up to produce CNBC x Boardroom’s Game Plan, an all-new, high-powered event taking place on July 25 in Los Angeles. Today, we’re highlighting featured speaker Stuart Duguid, founder of EVOLVE. Click here to view the full list of Game Plan speakers.

Stuart Duguid believes that the elitist days of tennis are behind us. Over the course of the last decade, he has served alongside some of the most iconic talents in the sport. As he and his clients have grown together in the game, Duguid has come to understand how all of the systems surrounding it evolve to meet the needs of the modern athlete.

Amid his top-tier talent, none has made an impact quite like his partnership with four-time Grand Slam champion Naomi Osaka. Throughout her tenure in the sport, Osaka has pushed the narrative of being a professional athlete. Over the course of time, she has championed the importance of mental and physical health as the cornerstones of her success.

In 2022, the two combined — along with Carly Duguid — to launch the EVOLVE Agency, which centers on the holistic wellness of its clients and allows them to call the shots. Since its inception, EVOLVE has teamed up with 2023 Wimbledon finalist Ons Jabeur and the wildly talented Nick Kyrgios.
