The first Development Symposium was held in Ireland in 2012. The event was presented as a forum where all Member National Authorities (MNAs) could present and discuss areas of Training and Development and have an input into the overall strategy of World Sailing. Over the years, the Development Symposium has become much, much more. The last 4 events in South Africa, USA, Singapore and Argentina saw the structure of the event broaden into an interactive workshop, oriented around Learning, Sharing Networking and Planning, where by invited speakers and delegates themselves had far more opportunity to shape the program to suit their individual needs.
International delegates at this important event receive presentations from a number of Experts in a variety of sport specific disciplines as well as taking part in break-away sessions where they are encouraged to interact with other delegates, often from other Nations. The Development Symposium directly compliments the work of the Development and Regions Committee, with the report from each event helping World Sailing to gather valuable information on how its work can continue to develop, giving those delegates present from New or Emerging Nations, a much needed chance to have their voices heard.
