Creating the conditions for high performance at the Matildas

The Matildas captured the hearts of the country during the 2023 Women’s World Cup. Before millions of people were glued to their screens to see the Matildas secure Australia’s highest-ever finish at a World Cup, a lot of work went on years before that to create the conditions for high performance.

Damon Klotz, host of the Culture First Podcast, will sit down with Sarah Walsh, Head of Women’s Football for Football Australia, to go behind the scenes on every part of the journey.

In this session, you’ll learn the conditions needed for high performance, the importance of the culture of the organisation on and off the pitch as well as the importance of equity when it comes to long-term success.

This session will be recorded for The Culture First Podcast.
