Netball PNG leaps toward future

Netball PNG is set to launch their five-year strategic plan and announce their Pacific Games team with a gala dinner at Port Moresby’s Gateway Hotel on June 29th.

Motivational speaker and American basketball player, Eric Bailey, will join the event as the keynote speaker, delivering an inspirational message on fulfilling your dreams.  

Bailey has spoken to more than three million people worldwide, drawing on his difficult start growing up in the crime riddled streets of downtown Los Angeles. He’s gone on to be one of the world’s top motivational speakers, leaving audiences driven to change their lives in a positive manner.

“Most people who fail in life don’t fail because they aim too high and miss…most people who fail aim too low and they hit,” says Bailey.

“I can’t wait to get to hear about Netball PNG’s plans for connecting the country through sport, and hope my message will incite a positive change for Papua New Guineans.”

Netball PNG President Julienne Leka-Maliaki is thankful for the support of ExxonMobil in securing a high profile speaker such as Bailey.

“We’re excited to welcome Eric to Port Moresby and know his inspirational words will deliver the exact sort of message Netball PNG hopes to achieve for the sport in the coming years,” she says. 

Netball PNG is taking the initiative to raise funds through this gala dinner to support the implementation of this five year Strategic Plan. They have an exciting program lined up for this event, including a few announcements of pipeline projects such as a semi-professional netball league and strategic partnerships.

Join Netball PNG as they launch their five-year strategic plan for the growth, advancement and sustainability of Netball in PNG. Tables are selling for K7,500 per table and all proceeds will go towards the operations of netball in PNG.
