Within the framework of the RINGS project, the national workshop for managers of the Belgian Olympic and Interfederal Committee (BOIC) took place on 6 September 2022 in Tubize. Organised in the new headquarters of the Belgian Football Federation, the workshop focused on the topic of stakeholder management and public affairs.
During the event, run by the RINGS management team, ie. Heidi Pekkola and Eva Rebmann from the EOC EU Office, BOIC managers mapped their main stakeholders and discussed the management and engagement activities of different stakeholder groups. BOIC President, Jean-Michel Saive, and CEO Cédric Van Branteghem, were very pleased with the Workshop and highlighted that it was an excellent kick-off for their two days of strategic discussions with the BOIC managers.
About the RINGS project
The RINGS project, led by the EOC EU Office and co-funded by the Erasmus+ Sport programme, is running from January 2020 to December 2022 and focuses on the strategic management of NOCs (ie., change management, public affairs and communications, governance of NOCs). The last phase of the project is to organise national training workshops in each of the 11 partner NOCs. Each of them focuses on the specific themes that are relevant to the national context.
