In the Shire … Sharing

I was delighted to be invited to participate in SportsTech 2012.

The event was “geared towards presenting technological solutions for grass roots sports. It’s about managing and co-ordinating sports efficiently and effectively”.

It was held in the Sutherland Entertainment Centre.

I have posted a copy of my presentation here. I am grateful to Alex Mednis for the invitation to present some ideas about sport and technology.

I thought the input fromĀ the speakers was outstanding. Graham Annesley, Member for Miranda and the NSW Minister for Sport and Recreation opened the Conference. Graham provided an excellent context for the conference and his discussion of technology gave me a great start to my presentation.

The speakers were:
Jeff Vlahovich, Cancer Council NSW
Chris Woutersz, Aware Education
Rex Levi, Sutherland Shire Junior Water Polo Association
Kerry Turner, NSW Department of Sport & Recreation
John Reid, Australian Drug Foundation
Joshua Sprake, Sutherland Shire Junior Water Polo Association
Assoc. Prof. Paul Jonson, University of Technology, Sydney
Kelly Dowling-Jones, Clayton Utz
Nadia Di Lorenzo, Yogabody
Alex Mednis, thinkrelativity

Sport and Technology; 30 June 2012 Workshop

I am taking part in a SportsTech 2012 Workshop this weekend.

SportsTech 2012 “is geared towards presenting technological solutions for grass roots sports. It is about managing and co-ordinating sports efficiently and effectively”.

It is being organised by Alex Mednis and is taking place at the Sutherland Entertainment Centre.

There is a Twitter #tag, #SportsTechAU for the event.

Over forty sports organisations have expressed interest in the workshop.

My 10-minute topic is Sport and Technology.

This is my SlideCast of my presentation.

I have chosen three themes:

  • Images
  • Principles
  • Data

I am hoping that these will lead to lots of conversations in the breakout sessions that follow the presentations.
