Leading teams and event management set the tone during day 2 of strategic meetings on Australia's Gold Coast


GOLD COAST - The excitement and energy of the first day of the FISU-NUSF Seminar returned on day two as delegates participated in sessions on leading teams and putting together an event management plan for future International Day of University Sport events.



Guided by the expertise of Simon Fletcher from Leading Teams Australia, the delegates were encouraged to look at the workings of high performing teams and what factors were critical in ensuring teams worked collaboratively together.

Much discussion was generated throughout the session as individuals explored what leadership skills they possessed and how they could develop teams to successful host events.



“The session was very interesting, very informative. I believe it will be very useful for bringing our teams together,” said Eric Michalak from New Caledonia.



In the spirit of collaboration and exchanging of ideas, FISU Oceania President Martin Doulton and AUSF Assessor Kairat Zakiryanov led an animated discussion around ensuring cooperation between FISU Oceania and AUSF continues.

Later, the delegation was invited to commence work on their event management plans for an identified IDUS activity in 2018. Extending on the presentations from Monday’s sessions, countries and regions worked together to formulate plans and identify areas where they could exchange ideas and processes.



“I really enjoyed working with people from different countries today and to hear their ideas and how they are in a way similar to our country but also different,” said Gaberieli Qoro from Fiji.
