Throughout the remainder of 2022 and beyond, SportWest will be hosting monthly webinars on a range of topics which are relevant to WA sport.
For our first webinar we have gathered two brilliant political minds to share their thoughts and experience on how sport can best engage with governments at all levels.
With the new Albanese Government now in power in Canberra, our experts will discuss how WA sport can best leverage off the change in government.
