This year’s CGF and Commonwealth Games Canada (CGC) Zeus Workshop and training was hosted by the British Virgin Islands Olympic Committee (BVIOC). Individuals from eight CGAs/NOCs across the Caribbean participated in the three day workshop which was specifically dedicated to simplifying the accreditation process for the upcoming Games.
The workshop was facilitated by Development Director at the CGF, Richard de Groen and CGF’s European Regional Development Manager, Ellen Barwise. Assisting them was Caribbean Regional Development Manager, Ryan Pelley.
The ABOA’s office staff and Secretary General were happy to have been a part of this very informative workshop and immediately identified all of the benefits of using the software to assist with not only accreditations and Team Management, but to also assist with the day to day operations of the office. i.e. sending bulk emails to athletes, preparing forms and extracting reports to name a few.
The most overwhelming question asked at the workshop was “How will you collect data from your National Federations to upload onto Zeus in order to meet your deadlines?”—challenge accepted.
