At the Badminton World Federation (BWF), I successfully managed the Olympic Solidarity-funded athletes for the London 2012 and Rio 2016 Olympic Games. My role involved developing athlete programs, facilitating training options, and managing relationships with Badminton Africa, National Federations, and National Olympic Committees.

I also set up a gold medal-winning high-performance system at Squash Australia (SQA). The team achieved remarkable success, topping the Commonwealth Games 2018 with three gold medals and winning nine medals at the 2019 World Championships. In late 2019, we opened a new National Training Centre at Carrara, Gold Coast.
MEDAL-WINNING HIGH-PERFORMANCE TEAM - BADMINTON IRELAND
In Ireland, I played a key role in creating a high-performance system from scratch, in partnership with Trinity College, before establishing the program in collaboration with the National Sports Campus. As a key stakeholder at the National Sports Campus, I was instrumental in developing the National Indoor Arena with 16 badminton courts and the National Velodrome with 22 badminton courts.

Furthermore, I secured long-term $10,000,000 funding from Hancock Prospecting for the development of the high-performance system at Artistic Swimming. I established a new National Training Centre in partnership with the Western Australia Institute of Sport in Perth.
