Workshop discussions centre were the importance of sustainable management, communications and the FIVB’s VolleyballYourWay movement in helping to grow volleyball around the world.

The first topic presentation on “National Federation Sustainable Management” aimed to help federations identify a source of funding that matches their strategy and encourages them to activate it. This was followed by a presentation by the FIVB’s Communications Director Richard Baker on “Communications / Social Media” which explored how national federations can activate the right communications platform. The final presentation on the “VolleyballYourWay Movement” urged national federations to activate the movement in their country to help spread volleyball’s positive values.

Brazilian former volleyball player Giba was also in attendance as he looks to take a more active role in the FIVB’s decision making process in his new position as president of the newly formed FIVB Athletes’ Commission.
