Unstoppable Katie Sadleir announced as Keynote Speaker

Posted On 24/02/2023

We are delighted to announce that Katie Sadleir will be the Key Note speaker at the upcoming EuroHockey Executive Leadership Forum 2023.

A Commonwealth Games medallist and an Olympian, Katie has a wealth of experience as both an athlete and sports administrator.

She represented New Zealand in synchronised swimming at the Los Angeles 1984 Olympic Games and the Edinburgh 1986 Commonwealth Games, winning bronze in the later event. She served as the Assistant Chef de Mission New Zealand at the Victoria 1994 Commonwealth Games and has attended six editions of the Games.

Katie led the establishment of the New Zealand Academy of Sport network in the late 1990s before becoming General Manager of Sport and Recreation New Zealand (now Sport New Zealand) from 2000-2006.

She has held directorships and senior leadership positions with a number of organisations including High-Performance Sport New Zealand and the New Zealand Swimming Federation.

Tom Pedersen-Smith said “We are thrilled to have a speaker of the caliber of Katie at our upcoming Executive Leadership Forum. Katie is a proven visionary in all the roles that she has held and showcases the possibilities for athletes transitioning away from their sports and into the workplace. We are very excited to learn from her as she shares with us her in-depth knowledge of sports administration and leadership.”

The EuroHockey Leadership Forum runs from March 24th to 26th in the nHow Brussels Bloom.
