AJS NSW welcomes member Peter Gibson for a “fireside chat” about his two months in Japan working at the Olympics and Paralympics.
Peter has just returned from Tokyo, where as Executive Advisor to the Australian Olympic Committee, the Seven Network and Paralympics Australia, he worked to ensure that Australia’s largest-ever Olympic and Paralympic teams had a great experience during the Tokyo 2020 Games. With his Japanese language and deep knowledge of Japan and sport, no doubt he made a valuable contribution to our two most successful Games ever, both events that brightened and inspired us during lockdown in Australia.
In this informal chat, Peter will give us a unique “behind the scenes” glimpse of both Games, which were closed to most people including the Japanese hosts.
This Zoom event is free to attend.
Sign up and a Zoom link will be sent the day before the event.
