AIBC WA: Sports Diplomacy Webinar

"Building Business through Sport"



Dear Members and Friends,

AIBC WA is pleased to present our first-ever sports diplomacy webinar “Building Business through Sport”.

With Indonesia’s population exceeding 265 million, the majority of Australians are unaware that Indonesians have an immense passion for sport, and that there is a close link between the government, the private sector and sports.

This passion for sport in Indonesia offers Australia a valuable platform to maximise trade, tourism and investment opportunities by breaking through cultural misunderstandings and leveraging our shared sporting interests and associated social values.

Sports offer Australia and Indonesia excellent opportunities to promote and develop more substantial business to business relations between our countries.

The Australian government has also recognised this as an essential approach in developing stronger people to people links, developmental, cultural, trade, investment, education and tourism opportunities with the recent release of its second sports diplomacy strategy “Sports Diplomacy 2030”.

Please join our experienced and passionate panel of guests, as they  discuss how sports can assist businesses to maximise opportunities between Australia and Indonesia.


  • David Davutovic, Producer at Optus Sport and Ticker Sport host.

Panel members:

  • Chris Barnes, Australia’s Consul General to Surabaya, Indonesia;
  • Stephanie Brantz, Freelance presenter, commentator, reporter at ABC, Fox Sports and ESPN;
  • Tiffani Makharti, Indonesian National Hockey Team representative and AIBC WA Committee Member;
  • Aryn Williams, Professional footballer with Persebaya Surabaya in Indonesia’s Liga 1;
  • Robbie Gaspar, Professional Footballers Australia and AIBC WA Vice Chair.

Closing Remarks:

  • Garry Johnson, CEO, Steel Blue.
