EAEN Conference 2019
Equipping Athletes for THEIR Tomorrow
October 9th & 10th 2019 - Canberra
The 2019 conference explores the future of Athlete Wellbeing and Engagement and the innovations allowing us, as a network, to better prepare our Elite athletes for optimal performance, in sport and beyond.
Featured in the jam-packed, 2 day conference program is Melbourne Business School Associate and TedEx presenter, Chyloe Kurdas. Chyloe has been instrumental in significant sporting landmark events, including the uptake of the AFL Women's League and key initiatives within Golf Australia. Chyloe is joined by Hugh Van Cuylenburg, founder of Melbourne-based The Resilience Project, which has delivered programs on wellbeing and resilience to leading sporting organisations, schools, and other corporations across Australia. Simon Kustenmacher (The Demographics Group) a demographer with an eye on the future, rounds out the leading keynotes speakers, with each speaker coming together to address new, up and coming trends and innovations across Athlete Wellbeing.
There will also be opportunities to meet and hear from other members of the AIS AW&E team as well as the AW&E managers from National Sporting Organisations, Commercial Sports and National Institute Networks.
The program aims to draw on experts from across the AW&E field, internal and external to the sporting and university networks, while also capitalising on opportunity for collaboration and sharing of knowledge across these networks.
