International Convention Centre Sydney (ICC Sydney) has produced its first graduates of a high performance program aimed at elevating its operations and people development pathways.

The inaugural 12-month High Performance Program featured an intensive series of leadership workshops covering convention centre business management, self-discovery, as well as completion of the Australian Institute of Management’s Mini Master of Business Administration. In the final months of the program the cohort were split into two teams, where each collaborated to solve a business-specific challenge.

“Our investment in upskilling and professional development coupled with our people’s ingenuity ensures that ICC Sydney remains at the fore of event management and technical delivery,” said ICC Sydney CEO Geoff Donaghy.

“We are incredibly proud to have established a culture that encourages our team of professionals to participate in developing impactful innovations, such as the event planning tool and the leadership pathway strategy, that will help underpin the success we deliver for our clients today and into the future.”

The six-member cohort included ICC Sydney’s senior team members, Adrian Slingsby (Risk Operations Manager), Andrew Durbridge (Senior Manager, ICT Service Delivery), Dana Fish (Senior Manager, Business Development – National Associations), Erin Rugg (Senior Manager, Human Resources Business Partnering), Jack Crozier (Senior Audio Visual Technical Manager) and Sandra Rae (Senior Manager, Public Relations).

“As part of our commitment to fostering our talent, including senior leaders, it was terrific to see the culmination of the year-long program with our inaugural high performing group,” said ICC Sydney director of human resources Luke Fleming.
