Rowing South Africa: Leadership Lessons through Sport
In 2019, the development officer at Rowing South Africa was contemplating how to continue the growth of the sport of rowing in a challenging environment. More funding was needed to attain her mandate of extending the sport to previously unexposed communities. Rowing South Africa operated in a complex setting, but the sport had much to contribute to participants. The benefits of rowing were physical and psychological, personal and professional, and often leading to success in many aspects of life. How could she articulate these benefits to increase participation in the sport and attract more funding to support? Verity Hawarden is affiliated with University of Pretoria.
