Biography

Michael Naraine is a Lecturer of Sport Management in the Department of Management in Deakin Business School. Michael’s area of expertise is in the sport management subdomain, specifically examining the networks in the sport industry. Networks can be both physical and virtual, and thus his expertise cuts across traditional (e.g., event management, governance) and emerging (e.g., digital media) content areas.

With the expanse of social media, Michael has concentrated much of his recent work in this area, examining the connections between users, as well as the analytics behind sports organisation social operations. He has consulted for various sports organisations including the International Olympic Committee and Canadian Olympic Committee, as well as providing interviews for print, radio, and television media in Canada and Australia.
