FIH President Tayyab Ikram, together with FIH CEO Thierry Weil and members of the FIH team, took the initiative to have an online interaction last week with Presidents and CEOs of the five Continental Federations – based in Africa, Asia, Europe, Oceania and Pan America – to discuss about key strategic matters related to the global development of hockey and also receive updates from activities in their respective continents.
Topics included development, sport, events, broadcast and marketing-communications.
“As part of my programme, Continental Federations and National Associations shall play a more significant role in the overall growth and efficient management of hockey. But for this, they need to be empowered! Therefore, they must have far more opportunities to express their views, insights, advices and concerns. This is why I make a point of consulting them on a very regular basis. And will continue to do so. That is key!”, President Ikram stated.
