Behind The Sport

The "Behind the Sport" podcast is the brain child of John Cranwell, Inclusive Sport SA CEO. After listening to podcasts for a number of years on his drive to work, John identified the lack of podcasts that focussed directly on sports administration and what happens behind the scenes in sport. What happens behind the doors to get your favourite elite team onto the field? How does my Club organise our Division 4 side? What even is a 'Sports Administrator'? The Podcast has weekly guests who work in the sport and recreation industry and who can share their current challenges, success and future plans. The podcast is a great insight into how sports operate and is targeted towards other sport administrators and interested listeners.

In my last episode for 2015, I had the great opportunity to sit with the CEO of the Port Adelaide Football Club, Keith Thomas! This is the longest episode yet, but I felt that it deserved to be listened to in full as Keith was a fantastic guest. We chat about all things PAFC, what the role of an AFL CEO is and mostly, we talk about leading change as Keith has done at Port Adelaide in his tenure.

If you enjoyed this episode, please share it as I think Keith has some great insight that many can learn from.

Merry Christmas!

At the recent Our Sporting Future conference run by the Australian Sports Commission, I tried to catch up with one of the organisers, Tim Arnold. Tim was very busy during the conference but luckily we were able to catch up this week over the phone (so I apologise for the difference in sound quality!). I highly encourage any sport administrators to attend the next conference in 2017.
