Camilla Brockett

Senior Research Fellow, ISEAL, Victoria University

Camilla is a Senior Research Fellow at the Institute of Sport, Exercise and Active Living (ISEAL) at Victoria University. In 2011, she commenced the Australian component of a major international collarborative study on elite sport policy; a joint partnership project between ISEAL, the Australian Sports Commission (ASC) and the Australian Institute of Sport (AIS).

Prior to commencing at VU, Camilla worked at the AIS in Canberra for over 8 years where she managed the Benchmarking & High Performance Innovation program. She was responsible for projects that identified world’s best practice and benchmark them against current practices at the AIS and across Australian sport. Through this program, Camilla evaluated and implemented better practices in service delivery, operating practices and sport management systems within Australia and overseas.

In addition to AIS-based benchmarking and reviews, Camilla has also consulted on organisational and strategic high performance sport management to both national and international sporting organisations, including New Zealand Academy of Sport, Auckland University Millenium Centre for Sport & Health, Sony Ericsson Women’s Tennis Association Tour, Canoeing Australia, Australian Rugby Union, Swimming Australia, Triathlon Australia, Fremantle Football Club and the Western Bulldogs Football Club.

Camilla has presented and published in peer-reviewed journals and popular science publications, as well as co-authoring the book ‘Personal Best’ with previous AIS Director, Professor Peter Fricker in 2008.
