Brendan Lynch, Founder of ExSport Management specialises in strategic planning, program development, governance reform, organisational development, workforce planning and change management in the sport industry.
As Program Manager of Volunteer Recruitment for the Sydney Organising Committee for the Olympic Games (SOCOG), Brendan headed the team responsible for the successful delivery of the 60,000 volunteers for the Sydney 2000 Olympic and Paralympics Games. Brendan has since been appointed as adviser to a number of Olympic, Paralympic, Commonwealth and Asian Games organising committees, as well as the IOC’s Olympic Games Knowledge Service.
The philosophy behind ExSport is relatively simple – to ensure the ongoing development of professional sport management by promoting organisational development, sound business practices and the commercial growth of sport.
Drawing on the wealth of experience gained from over two decades in the international sport management industry, Brendan has made significant contributions towards the staging and management of major sporting events around the world. In 2006 ExSport worked with the Doha Asian Games Organising Committee to prepare the tender for workforce training for the Doha 2006 Asian Games.
Last year ExSport provided advisory services to the Vancouver Organising Committee to plan the recruitment, training, management, logistics support, and rewarding of the 2010 Winter Olympic and Paralympic Games volunteers.
With the London 2012 Olympics only 1136 days away, Brendan has already begun advising the London Organising Committee to support the development of its sizable volunteer workforce. This is no small task with up to 70,000 volunteers expected to take part in the 2012 Olympic and Paralympic Games.
