Nese Gundogan, Secretary General of the Olympic Committee, welcomed the audience with an introductory speech. Then, Eva Rebmann, Acting Deputy Director of the EOC EU Office, presented the RINGS project, the strategic management handbook, the public affairs guidelines, the Stakeholders’ tool and the online platform.  

Getting to the heart of the workshop, Dr. Prof. Holger Preuß from the University of Mainz explained the Strategic Management of Olympic Sport Organisations Guidelines and the Importance of Strategic Planning in Sport Federations, Change Management and its Challenges, with some very practical examples and good practices from a number of sport organisations.
