Part of the duty of any international federation is to ensure that there is a transfer of knowledge among its member national federations. The transfer of knowledge allows best practices to be divulged to all and allows the more established national federations to share their knowledge base with the younger members.
Mind Sports South Africa (MSSA) is not only the oldest federation in the world for esports, but it is also the only organisation in the world that has continually held championships for esports since 1998.
Thus, International Esports Federation (IESF) used the the period after its Global Esports Executive Summit for its national federations to meet and participate in a top-of-the-line workshop. While other delegates were shown the sights of dynamic Busan, National Federation representatives were in IESF’s offices exploring better and new ways of dealing with issues.
Amanda Pakade (MSSA’s President) was quick to step up to the plate to reveal to other members the manner in which MSSA deals with issues. A number of members were enthralled with the clear and crisp manner in which Amanda addressed those present.
The workshop was an undoubted success, and all IESF’s member national federations benefitted from it. Through such workshops, all federations are strengthened, and ultimately, IESF itself.
