Forward Thinking Series 2017-18
Welcome to the 2017-18 Forward Thinking Series
In its 4th year running, the Forward Thinking Series brings sport professionals together across four unique events to develop innovative ways to grow participation by enhancing our ability to make strategic decisions, test and improve our products, and achieve great outcomes in a resource-scarce environment.
This is an exciting event that will encourage you as a sport administrator to look at your organisation from a new perspective and 'think outside the box' to find new ways to encourage less active Victorians to get involved in sport and active recreation.
The series will be built around the Sport Jam, an exciting two-day design sprint in March 2018.
Participation Strategy Manager Tom Dixon said:
"This is one of my favourite events on the Vicsport calendar as it gives people an opportunity to get away from the office, work with people from other organisations and discover innovative ways to build an inclusive sporting landscape which benefits all Victorians.”
