Event description

Description

Does sports administration and governance need a shake-up?

Our guest speakers Brigette McGuire (Managing Director, McGuire Marketing), James Sutherland (CEO, Cricket Australia), Kate Palmer (CEO Australian Sports Commission) and John Bertrand AO (International sportsman, businessman and philanthropist.), will challenge the status quo by questioning whether sports administrators and boards really have their eye on the ball.

Sport makes a huge contribution to our economy and it rightly gains regular media attention, but often for the wrong reasons – board room disagreements aired publicly, prominent athletes suspended for use of performance enhancing drugs and high-profile player payment disputes are just a few examples. The performance of our athletes on the international stage seems to be in decline – what’s going on? Is the funding available to sport really getting to where it’s needed most, or is it eaten away on multiple layers of administration?

This Leaders Panel will be held at 6.00pm-8.30pm on Wednesday 16 May 2018 at our Monash University city location, 271 Collins Street, Melbourne CBD. Light refreshments will be served

What is a Leaders Panel?

Our Leaders Panels showcase Monash Business School’s thought leadership as a source of inspiration for new thinking, as the seed for creating communities of knowledge, and as a point of reference for national debates. The Leaders Panels bring together prominent members of our Business Advisory Board, as well as guest speakers to focus on issues of national importance which merit public discussion and debate. A typical Leaders Panel will include a discussion between three to four contributors to stimulate and shape debate, followed by a Q&A.
