“During my time as CEO, the Australian Sports Commission (ASC) ran a series of best practice governance programs around Australia for board members of sporting organisations. Kate Costello, Governance Matters, developed and presented those programs. Kate also had input to the ASC’s Governance Best Practice Principles, was appointed by the ASC as independent reviewer of Ski and Snowboard Australia and assisted with negotiations of the merger of Men’s and Women’s golf.
Kate’s expertise in governance led to her serving, with me, as a committee member appointed by the Federal Government to undertake an independent review of the governance and management of soccer in Australia which resulted in the existing structures in the Australian Soccer Federation (ASF).
Kate has extensive experience in corporate governance and a real understanding of the governance issues faced by organisations. She has an impressive track record in assisting sporting organisations to adopt governance best practice in a practical way which meets the needs of the particular organisation.
I can highly recommend Governance Matters to the sporting community.”
