    1. 1. sport is community.<br />peter holmes à court, chairman, isfm consulting<br />active 2009 conference<br />western australian sports and rec department<br />25.11.09<br />webcast: slideshare.net/peterhac<br />comments: peter@whitebull.com<br />
    2. 2. isfm is community.<br />international sports and facilities management helpssports organisationsunderstand their assets and manage them better. We believe the key is understanding the unique properties of sport including all the intangible (read: emotional) elements. <br />Sports will always be about encouraging heaps of participation at all levels and brilliance at the elite level. We help organisations devote their energy to the sporting bit, and not on the boring stuff. <br />Thanks to our founder, Graeme Watson, we have been doing this for 20 years.<br />
    3. 3. “It is the foremost task – and responsibility – of our generation to re-imagine our enterprises and institutions, public and private.” <br />source: tom peters 2003 (and then after the crash in 2009)<br />
    4. 4. “there is no better motivator than you have to”<br />source: peter hàc<br />
    5. 5. the crawford reportwas released to the public on november 17 and will be formally “replied to” by the federal government in february 2010<br />
    6. 6. the crawford report was released to the public on november 17 and will be formally “replied to” by the federal government in february 2010<br />contrary to public understanding, the crawford report is not about cutting funding for synchronized swimming or john coates’ medal prospects in the 100 meters butterfly<br />
    7. 7. the crawford report was released to the public on november 17 and will be formally “replied to” by the federal government infebruary 2010<br />contrary to public understanding, the crawford report is not about cutting funding for synchronized swimming or john coates’ medal prospects in the 100 meters butterfly<br />the report includes transformational recommendations for sporting organisationsacross the country<br />
    8. 8. crawford report: isfm summary<br />summary 1: mass participation in all sport should be a focus of all levels of government in the future (as opposed to elite sports/winning gold medals) but the infrastructure and facilities are not able to support current levels of grassroots participation, let alone the next generation of participants<br />
    9. 9. crawford report: isfm summary<br />summary 2: “in order to meet the needs of the community, it is critical to know what they really are. funding facilities without an assessment of need is unlikely to provide optimal outcomes” <br />source:crawford report, 17.11.2009<br />
    10. 10. crawford report: isfm summary<br />summary 3: the panel recommends facilities become multi-sport and community focused to decrease the chances of them being financial sinkholes for LGA’s, so they need to have facilities like meeting rooms, class rooms, function facilities, canteens etc for non-sport use, and they should also cater for emerging sports<br />
    11. 11. crawford report: isfm summary<br />summary 4: “community sport underpins elite sport by deepening the talent pool [and] also directly contributes to the social agenda” <br />source:crawford report, 17.11.2009<br />
    12. 12. the power of sport<br />live <br />human <br />games<br />professional<br />+<br />participatory<br />
    13. 13. *<br />the power of sport <br />*<br />not the box office clout, the tv ratings or the value of our assets<br />
    14. 14. the power of sport <br />to build<br />to transform<br />- people<br />- communities<br />- ideas<br />
    15. 15. the power of sport in Australia<br />there are global similarities, but like doing any business in another country, the cultural differences create a unique environment<br />
    16. 16. the power of sport in Australia<br />uniquely ours<br />community grounded<br />indigenous relevance<br />we develop world champions from swimming to pole vault, we play four codes of football (including one we made up ourselves) and we staged the best Olympics ever (or so they told us).<br />
    17. 17. the power of sport in Australia<br />uniquely ours<br />community grounded<br />indigenous relevance<br />our structure makes us very different: <br />the average contracted NFL footballer player earn 50x the average American worker, MLB baseballer 70x, NBA basketballer higher still. <br />
    18. 18. the power of sport in Australia<br />uniquely ours<br />community grounded<br />indigenous relevance<br />our structure makes us very different: <br />the average contracted NFL footballer player earn 50x the average American worker, MLB baseballer 70x, NBA basketballer higher still. <br />the average rugby league player here earns 2.2x the average Australian wage, a soccer player in A-League a bit less, an Aussie rules player a bit more.<br />
    19. 19. the power of sport in Australia<br />uniquely ours<br />community grounded<br />indigenous relevance<br />our structure makes us very different: <br />as a result our elite athletes are elite in their performance, but not segregated from our society.<br />
    20. 20. the power of sport in Australia<br />uniquely ours<br />community grounded<br />indigenous relevance<br />and we touch the significant issues of the nation: and no more importantly than our indigenous relevance and ability to make an impact there. <br />
    21. 21. from 2006 to 2008 I led a small, <br />dedicated team that turned around<br />the Rabbitohs. What we stated <br />has continued...<br />
    22. 22. ...thanks to the commitment of management, an independent board, coaching staff and players and of course the energy and creativity of co-owner, Russell Crowe<br />
    23. 23. the Rabbitohs play rugby league, and have won a record 20 first-grade premierships since their foundation in 1908<br />photograph of the 1908 premiership winning team<br />
    24. 24. unfortunately, they are all in black and white.<br />
    25. 25. in 1999, after nearly 3 decades of underperformance, the National Rugby League excluded the Rabbitohs from the competition. They did not play in the 2000 or 2001 seasons.<br />
    26. 26. in two marches through the streets of Sydney 100,000 people protested the decision<br />in July 2001, a federal court decision found that the Rabbitohs were wrongfully excluded, and the club was reinstated in 2002<br />
    27. 27. however, in 2006 some were comfortable just ‘being back’, the team was running last and was financially fragile and the club’s voting members were asked to approve a proposal to sell control of the club to Russell Crowe and me:<br />EGM on march 19 2006<br />Sydney Olympic Stadium<br />42 speeches over 5 hours<br />3942 eligible voters<br />2957 votesrequired – 75.0% – to win<br />2988 votes received – 75.8%– or by just 31 votes<br />
    28. 28. re-imagine everything (2006-09)<br />a winning culture<br />strong membership<br />quality sponsors<br />community engaged<br />first class players, well paid, well treated<br />challenging for #1 every year <br />

    30. 30. in2007, the Rabbitohs qualified for the semi finals for the first time in 18 years<br />
    31. 31. In 2007, the Rabbitohs qualified for the semi finals for the first time in 18 years<br />membershiphas risen from 8,000 to 15,000<br />
    32. 32. In 2007, the Rabbitohs qualified for the semi finals for the first time in 18 years<br />Membership has risen from 8,000 to 15,000<br />in2009, the Rabbitohs will, for the first time, make a small profit<br />

    94. 94. isfm does:<br /> International Sports and Facilities Management helps organisations in the sports and leisure industries understand their assets and manage them better through a number of processes we have been using (and improving) for over 20 years.<br /> We believe the key is understanding that the sport industry has unique properties and that nothing can be done without extensive consultation to understand all the intangible (read: emotional) elements. <br /> While the intangibles are important, all sporting and recreational organisations need to know and manage the boring stuff: know exactly what their assets are, manage and maintain them, monetise as appropriate, and never forget your community wants you around. <br /> Sports will always be about encouraging heaps of participation at all levels and brilliance at the elite level. We help organisations devote their energy to the sporting bit, and not on the boring stuff.<br /> Thanks to our founder, Graeme Watson, we have been doing this for 20 years and have worked in every state in Australia, across NZ and Asia and for virtually every major sporting body and many Clubs and Government entities.<br /> Peter Holmes à Court acquired the business in 2007 and Chris Green became CEO 2008.<br />©11/09 www.isfm.com.au<br />

The model demonstrated how high quality multi-camera coverage, produced efficiently (i.e., cheaply) could create multiple new revenue streams (organiser, participants, sponsors, syndication) and enable a small participation sport to reach its geographically diverse fan base. <br />photo credits: davidsproule,sportspics, peter holmes à court<br />more peter hac presentations: www.slideshare.net/peterhac<br />contact and comments: peter@whitebull.com<br />© 11/09 www.isfm.com.au<br />
