    The sporting world provides a powerful metaphor for business, and there are some striking parallels.

    Facilitated by Sandra Wood, Managing Director of Great Managers, our expert panel will include:

    • Bernie Gurr – CEO, Parramatta Eels

    • Carolyn Campbell, CEO, Netball NSW

    • David Matthews – CEO, GWS Giants


    We will hear their insights on leadership and the challenges of managing high performance teams in such a high profile environment. We will also explore the strategies used to address the challenges faced by women in sport and business, plus much more.

    We look forward to kicking off a new and exciting year with you!

    In collaboration with Campbelltown Catholic Club and the Western Sydney Business Connection (WSBC), Campbelltown City Council are hosting a not to be missed XVenture Experience on Friday 24 March 2017 – and we want your team involved!

    Led by world-class leaders in experiential learning, XVenture, this is the ultimate team, leadership and dynamic networking experience. Teams of six will take on a series of exciting challenges, designed to test all aspects of teamwork, leadership and strategy development. The winning team won’t be the fittest, fastest or strongest – it will be the team which works together and stays together.

    This is a unique experience to engage with Campbelltown City Council, local businesses and those from further afield, as well as showcase Campbelltown City. It is not an obstacle course – the event focuses on important elements of high performing teams like leadership, communication, decision making under pressure, creativity, strategy and risk taking.
