  • we have the best sports activity in the world. big claim, but it may just be true.
  • unfortunately we have govenrance and management that is well behind.
  • any proposal to change this must be
  • reminder of what we are talking about here….
  • because it has this power, it is more important that other game. Cards is great fun, played by many, but doesn’t have this power. Fishing has other power.
  • and it is internally complex at all times, it is both/and, a great property of sport is that it can be two things at once that might look conflicting
  • communityfocussed and business like
  • an dBoth mac and pc
  • We have tried to harness this at the Rabbitohs,we know and love the big guys like this
  • of course it can be on the field of the games..Jaryd Hayne may be the most popular Rugby League Player
  • but the number one event in Australia’s sporting history is unquestionably Cathy Freeman 400 m gold
  • and our only 9 time world champ in a major sport is Layne Beachley a native of Manly
  • And our kids will trade cards of sports starts that come here from foreign countries, like Sam Burgess, because we have the best competition in the world in Rugby League
  • or come here to sail into the best harbour in the world
  • or they will trade cards of dual internationals and recently world cup champtons in Cricket…
  • And we can do it across male dominates sports, with women’s related issues

  • THE FFA has just commissioned a national audit, which ISFM just completed, that gives updated information of the facilities for women of all ages wanting to play soccer
  • THE FFA has just commissioned a national audit, which ISFM just completed, that gives updated information of the facilities for women of all ages wanting to play soccer
  • NSW have the highest number of female participants, 55,400 in total (junior and senior) 30% of NSW junior participants are female Queensland and Victoria have the second and third highest female participation 26% of junior participants in Tasmania are female Australian female participation grew 12% between 2007-200932% of adult participants in the ACT are female I have also attached a map which shows: the scatter of female change rooms across Australia there is another map with fewer pin points which you could reference as highlighting the growth regions of female football (or something else you come up with)
  • Dressing rooms are an issue
  • lights are an issue, and the growth of the game and women’s participation is a great opportunity for those who belive in the power of sport, but a great challenge for a country without sufficient facilities today.Great initiative by the FFA
  • and while my talk may be seen as getting stuck in to all men, that is not the case.
  • it is just that a lot of them are grumpy, resistant to change, or just not aware of what benefit change could bring.
  • the quote is relayed by David Pemberthy, editoro of the thepunch.com.au, from former Senator John Quirk about amessy pre-selection stinksinthe South Australian branch Showing a degree of enthusiasm for Emily’s List (US political movement) shared by many male colleagues ie they hated it, Senator Quirk, who in his spare time was a keen goat shooter, captured the personnel challenges then facing the labour party.
  • total board memberships of peak bodies (including traditionally and exclusively women’s sports)20% of all peak bodies have no womenand 3 big sports have no women (ARU, CA, NRL)we have experienced decades of virtually no change re. women’s representation in sport governance but I realise that it’s not your role/prerogative to speak for governments)just unacceptable to move with society
  • But too many men on the one board does not make for the best decisions.
  • (very hard for the women who run this country to be seen as supporting quotas, we have to be frank about that.  KK, Ellis, Fed Minister for Status of Women PB, can't be seen to promote women at the cost of men.  Obama's political capital is eroded whenever he is seen as favouringafricanamericans.)
  • )very hard for the women who run this country to be seen as supporting quotas, we have to be frank about that.  KK, Ellis, Tanya Plibasek, can't be seen to promote women at the cost of men.  it is just not favoured.  True however KK, Ellis and Plibersek would have benefitted even if it would have been indirectly, from targets set by Fed and State governments for gender diversity on government boards and in politics including registers of ‘available’ women 
  • in the NFL which addresses African-American minorities in head coach hiring):transparent (ie advertised  - with desired skill sets and selection criteria fully described),
  • who are currently on, or will get on boards who with a quota would otherwise be seen as token sports should do this, before it gets done to them (by edict)it is a market based system, i maintain, as higher performing codes and clubs will financially outperform other codes/clubs (and dinosaur action will be punished very hard by sponsors, media, gov't grant providors)it might add real value (se Goldman Sachs Toohey report etc)commit to it bona fide, before it gets done to them (by edict).Could be piloted and further safeguarded with “If not, why not” report (to gov’t funders, members) ( a la ASX corporate governance council guidelines changes to become effective on July 1) . E.g “despite this new selection process, we still have no women on our board because .....”it might add real value (se Goldman Sachs Toohey report etc)
  • Impact of Rooney Rule:
  • Impact of Rooney Rule:
  • There were some people who said, 'I want to hire whoever I want to hire. You can't be telling us who to hire.' That is your decision," Rooney said. "But we say you must give an opportunity to an African-American or a minority.

What a bloody legend. Didn’t win an America’s cup, but could have if only someone had asked her to.

    • sports is a meritocracy.  if it is good, people will watch it 
    • on-field excellence is directly impacted by off-field decision making quality
    • boards make the key decisions
    Premise
    • diversity adds to the quality of boards
    • there is not sufficient diversity in sporting boards
    • women would add to the diversity, and therefore women will add to the quality of decision making
    Premise
  • My Experience:
    only thing that works to increase minority participation (in situations where the decision is subjective)
    is lots of time or a mandated minimum standard
    (i.e. quotas)
     
  • My Belief:
    • We don’t have time, and we won’t have quotas
    • we don't have time: because Sport business constantly reminds you that no sport has an entitlement to audience, revenue etc
    • and we won't have quotas because  
  • we don’t have the

  • “the women in this government might just be shading the men”

    (never hurt a goat)
  • Proposal:
    1. selection process transparent (i.e. advertised)
    2. (at least) one women on the selection panel 
    3. and then 50% of the candidates interviewed for board positions must be women.
    then chose only on merit!
  • Benefits:
    • based on a successful, proven system
    • final decision made on pure merit
    • it is a market system
    • it will not hurt any women
    and really, guys, it won't hurt a bit.

    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.
    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.
    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.
    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.
    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.

    Peter Holmes à Court, Chairman, is co-owner (with Russell Crowe) of the South Sydney Rabbitohs, a director of Viocorp International, one of Australia’s leading internet broadcasting companies; he is on the board of the Barangaroo Delivery Authority and recently Peter became the Founding Chairman of The Greater Sydney Partnership and Brand Sydney, a not for profit initiative established to help promote Sydney's interests as a global city.
    In 1993, Peter formed Back Row Productions, operating in New York, London and Sydney. Back Row produced over 20 live shows in 30 countries and 300 cities worldwide. Live acts included the Australian show Tap Dogs, the UK’s Eddie Izzard and the US’s Jerry Seinfeld.
    Peter returned to Australia in November 2000 and until January 2004 held the position as Chief Executive Officer of the Australian Agricultural Company and was responsible for re-listing AACo on the Australian Stock Exchange. Founded in 1824, AACo is Australia’s oldest continuously operating company and today is the largest cattle company in the world managing over 600,000 head of cattle over 15 million acres. Until recently he was also a director of Queensland Rail.
    Peter read law at Oxford University and received his BA in economics and theatre from Middlebury College, Vermont. He lives in Sydney and is the proud husband of Divonne Holmes à Court (the founder of Smart Population Foundation) and father to their two sets of twins, George and Robert and Elsa and Madison. Peter warmed the bench for the Oxford Blues rugby union side and today rides a bike and does the odd triathlon, both of which he does slowly.
    Graeme Watson, Founder, Graeme has in excess of 40 years experience in the sports and entertainment industry as a qualified architect, strategic business and financial planner. Establishing ISFM some 20 years ago, Graeme has worked with the majority of sporting codes to assist them in restructuring and building their businesses to ensure long-term financial well being. A significant part of Graeme’s work today is devoted to the master planning of facilities and businesses which satisfy long-term objectives and optimise financial returns of clients. Recognised by his peers as a leader in the industry, Graeme’s early involvement in the sports industry included representing Australia, as well as Victoria, Western Australia, and New South Wales, in cricket during the 1960’s and 1970’s. In addition, Graeme played Australian Rules Football for Melbourne during the 1960s which included 1964, Melbourne’s premiership year.
    Chris Green, CEO, has extensive experience in the sports and entertainment industry, beginning with CMA in Dallas (a division of Host Communications), and implementing Sears’ sponsorship of collegiate sport. On returning to Australia in 1999, Chris was appointed Marketing Manager for Athletics Australia, the governing body for track and field, in the lead up to the 2000 Sydney Olympic Games. Following the success of the Games, Chris became General Manager (Marketing) of the horse racing industry, overseeing 26 tracks and 500 race meetings per annum. He held this position from 2001 until 2004.Following this, Chris was General Manager (Strategy) for DSEG, a sports marketing consulting business which has become a leader in the delivery of negotiation and advisory services. During 2007, Chris joined Peter Holmes à Court at White Bull Holdings and provides specialist advice to the sports industry through ISFM.
