Facility Management

The management of sport and recreation facilities continues to be a critical area for local governments across Queensland and Australia. Councils have used a range of approaches and these have delivered successes and failures. Our industry professionals know that there are many factors including: community expectations, politics and economics, that impact on successful management.

This 2.5 hour master class will provide an overview of recent nationwide research into aquatic and leisure facility management and provide perspectives from industry leaders (including commercial managers and local government) on the pros and cons of different management models.

This highly interactive Master Class Program includes:

  1. Introductions and overview

  5. Funding new and upgrading old - Can you include debt in your capital mix? (Jason Leslie, Otium Planning Group)
