The workshop consisted of 4 professional courses: Current Trend in International Sport Affairs, Professional Experience Sharing, Practice on International Law, and Practice on International Negotiation. The majority of the audience are staff from National Federations (NFs), alumni of International Sports Affairs Training Course (ISATC) and active members in international sports affairs.
The professional skill provided at both workshops catered precisely to the audiences’ needs. By utilizing the practical skills in the workshop, CTOC hopes the staff could easily resolve issues associated with international sports affairs at work. Due to COVID-19 pandemic, CTOC reduced the participation scale to 40 people per workshop this year. However, we have received positive feedback from our participants that the younger generation benefitted greatly from the expertise of our speakers.
