A specialist in sport governance, Geoff Schoenberg is a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in Sport Governance at Deakin University. His current project is focused on understanding and improving sport governance in India. Through this work he has facilitated workshops in India with the CEO of the Australian Sports Commission, interviewed many members of the sector, and participated in media discussions about his work. As his project continues, he looks forward to contributing needed empirical evidence into the debate around the future of sport in India.
Geoff’s interest in sport governance has focused on the soft side of effective governance–how decisions are made, how individual directors behave, what are the implications of different group dynamics. These intangible factors, when combined with structures and composition, are critical for improving sport governance.
Complementing his varied research portfolio, Geoff is an award winning speaker and has given presentations in ten different countries.
