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.

Getting the leadership of Australian sport together is always valuable – not enough of it.

Any event that brings together the Chairs and Presidents of NSOs in a forum such as this is of great value. Delivering key information, such as that provided by John Wylie and Peter Conde, to (almost) every sport at the same time is also beneficial.

Collaboration is key and great to see an initiative that supports this, probably something sports don’t do enough of.

I would give up a morning of my time anytime to hear such original thoughts and ideas.

De Andy Walshe’s presentation was one of the best of its kind I have seen.
