International Convention Centre Sydney (ICC Sydney), managed by ASM Global, has produced its first graduates of a high performance program following a solutions focused pitch to elevate its operations and people development pathways, which was delivered to its executive committee this month.
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.
ICC Sydney’s Chief Executive Officer, Geoff Donaghy praised the venue team members’ commitment to innovation and professional development.
“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.
“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.
“ICC Sydney’s High Performance Program participants have certainly exemplified the venue’s values and standards and this outstanding achievement is a testament to their creativity, collaboration and world class venue management practices,” Mr Donaghy said.
