38 CEOs/MDs       29 Chairs/Presidents       The C-Suite of Australian sport – over 100 sport leaders

Coming off the previous evening’s outstanding Induction & Awards Gala Dinner, Sport Australia Hall of Fame staged the inaugural Chairs’ Round Table for Sport on Friday 12th October at Crown Melbourne. The event was co-chaired by The Sport Australia Hall of Fame Chair John Bertrand AO and Sport Australia Chair John Wylie AM.

Our aim was to bring together Australian sports’ most influential leaders to discuss and debate relevant, cutting-edge topics and issues to benefit Australian sport. And we did just that.

The large contingent of National Sporting Organisations and National Peak Bodies were inspired by our internationally acclaimed keynote speaker, Dr Andy Walshe – ‘The man who trains the very best in the world to be even better’ - and our impressive panel comprising:
• Human Behaviourist Jemma King • Chief of Army Lieutenant General Rick Burr AO DSC MVO • AIS Director Peter Conde

Panellists explored the future key role of “Expert Learning” and “Collaboration”.

SAHOF extends our sincere thanks to Presenting Partner Sportscover and Sport Australia for their support in making this come to fruition.

Delighted to confirm that planning is underway for the 2019 Chairs' Round Table to be held on Friday 11th October.
Personal invitations will be issued in due course.

When considering the stature of an athlete or for that matter any person, I set great store in certain qualities which I believe to be essential in addition to skill. They are that the person conducts his of her life with dignity, with integrity, courage, and perhaps most of all, with modesty. These virtues are totally compatible with pride, ambition, and competitiveness.
