Since establishing PDP in 2018, Peter has completed numerous strategy and governance improvement projects with more than 30 clients across the sport and not-for-profit sector. A sample of these projects are highlighted below.


Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries

Purpose Driven Performance has been selected by the department for the past four years to deliver governance workshops to the sport and recreation industry.  A variety of programs have been offered over a multi-week format aimed at all levels of the sport and recreation industry including Governance Essentials, Governance Excellence and Chair Leadership. In 2021, the program was further extended to offer online training to regional and remote communities across the state. Peter and Colin overlay their knowledge of contemporary governance practices with their practical industry experience to deliver a highly relevant and engaging series of workshops.


Priorities for sport

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.

PDP was engaged by WestCycle to work with the CEO and board and lead the consultation and development of Our Bike Path 2022-2026.

Our Bike Path sets out an agenda of strategic priorities for all organisations and individuals involved in cycling and provides a guiding framework and vision for the bike riding community in Western Australia. This project was conducted over a 12 month period and required considerable community consultation and engagement with a variety of key stakeholders and government agencies.

MH & Community Sport Project

Working with the Western Australian Association for Mental Health, Purpose Driven Performance completed a report on behalf of SportWest into the current challenges facing community sport and how volunteers can be best supported to address the mental health and wellbeing needs of their members.

Accompanying the report was the development of a Mental Health & Wellbeing Community Sport Framework which provided a set of principles and advice for community sport to support the needs of their members. The development of the report and framework was pivotal in SportWest securing significant funding to further support the needs of the community sport sector.


FIBA Singapore

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.


Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries – Learning & Development and Club Development Review.

The DLGSC engaged PDP in partnership with Colin Brown Consulting to undertake a state-wide review of the department’s Every Club program, learning and development strategy and the industry’s view as to roles and responsibilities as they relate to club development. An extensive consultation process with more than 140 representatives of SSA’s, LGA’s, Regional Association, Industry bodies and clubs was undertaken. A series of findings and recommendations as they relate to the future direction for learning and development and club development were presented which set the stage for a transformational change to the delivery of club development in WA.

Bowls WA logo

PDP undertook a governance review of Bowls WA to evaluate the effectiveness of the existing governance structures and systems of the sport of bowls in Western Australia. The review involved consultation with a variety of stakeholders and recognised the vital importance of bowls clubs as essential hubs and points of connection for our communities. The review presented a series of recommendations that address the need for an aligned purpose, vision, and strategic direction with members along with a number of governance improvement opportunities to help improve the organisations performance and its long term sustainability.

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. The project undertook a detailed consultation process with a range of key stakeholders, leading to the development of a future state document. This formed the basis of the requirement of a Request for Proposal process and subsequent shortlisting, review and recommendation of a preferred vendor for the future membership database supplier to the sport.

Football West

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. Each topic was tailored for the needs of the clubs with participants undertaking a practical exercise to help them put the theory directly into action to help their club committee.
