Coming off the previous evening’s exceptional Induction & Awards Gala Dinner, Sport Australia Hall of Fame, delivered the second Chairs’ Round Table for Sport on Friday, October 11 at Crown Melbourne. Presented by Sportscover in partnership with the Australian Institute of Sport, the event was once again co-chaired by Sport Australia Hall of Fame Chair John Bertrand AO and Sport Australia Chair John Wylie AM.

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

The large contingent of National Sporting Organisations and National Peak Bodies were captivated by our keynote Gold Medal Ready Program Manager Rosie Stanimirovic PhD. With our panelists discusing mindset to execution.

Our panel was outstanding and comprised of:

Kim Brennan AM – AIS Gold Medal Ready Alumni
Kurt Fearnley AO – Sport Australia Commissioner
Steve Hooker OAM – AIS Gold Medal Ready Alumni
Jemma King PhD – Specialist Consultant at Department of Defence, AIS & Swimming Australia
Matt Cardinaels, CSM – Human Performance Lead 2 Commando Regiment.

A highly valuable few hours discussing high performance sport and how we as a sector can collabortively to continue to achieve outstanding results whilst competing against far larger and better resourced nations… This struck a good balance between providing relevant, engaging content along with the ability to network which is always so valuable.
Cara Honeychurch, CEO – Ten Pin Bowling.

The Chairs’ Round Table was a fantastic and inspirational session and made even more formidable with the attendance of the Gold Medal Ready Alumni and the Commandos. Hockey Australia is extremely excited about the opportunities available to our Olympic squad athletes through the GMR program.
Melanie Woosman, President – Hockey Australia.

A professional event that updated the room on what is happening at the elite levels. An opportunity to hear the initiatives that are in place and the impact they ate having on the athlete’s performance. A great chance to share and engage with other leaders in sport.
