Three multi-week programs were offered – Governance Essentials, Governance Excellence and Chair Leadership. Peter and Colin were able to overlay their knowledge of contemporary governance practices with their practical industry experience to deliver a highly relevant and engaging series of workshops.
SportWest engaged PDP to lead the development of a new industry strategy that will set the priorities for WA sport for the next 4 years.
The Strategic Priorities for Sport has been developed to achieve the following objectives:
- Define at a high level, the contribution of the industry and the positive outcomes it delivers for the broader Western Australian community.
- Identify the strategic priorities and opportunities for the industry while addressing current challenges.
- Provide a consistent platform that elevates the industry in wider Western Australian planning and investment decisions across government and non-government sectors.
- Promote growth in participation at all levels within the community for the improved health and wellbeing of all Western Australian citizens.
PDP undertook extensive consultation directly with the industry and the development of the Priorities for WA Sport represents the first time that the industry priorities have been developed for the industry, by the industry and based on the specific needs and requirements of the industry.
Purpose Driven Performance was engaged by FIBA Singapore to undertake an organisational review of the Basketball Association of Singapore. The review assessed the organisations governance against Singapore Sports Council’s best practice principles, as well as their performance across planning, finance, human resource management, sport development and high performance. The review produced a comprehensive report consisting of a series of findings and recommendations identifying priority areas for action.
WestCycle has undergone significant governance reform in recent years culminating in WestCycle becoming the true peak body in Western Australia representative of all the sport, recreational and advocacy elements of cycling.

Triathlon Australia engaged PDP to lead a review of the whole of sport membership database to identify the future system functionality requirements that could deliver on Triathlon’s future strategic imperatives.

PDP partnered with Ruth Gibbons from Savvy Innovation to deliver a series of 10 club development workshops covering a range of topics including planning, risk management, social media and marketing, role of the committee, fundraising and sponsorship, and volunteer management.
