David has been awarded the prestigious Earle F. Zeigler award by the North American Association for Sport Management (NASSM). The award will be presented at the NASSM's conference in June 2011 in Canada. David will be the first non-North American to be honoured with this award, which recognises his contributions to the field of sport management via scholarship and service.
David attended the 2011 European Association for Sport Management conference in Prague, presenting papers on his bibliometric work with sport journals, and on sport policy work in relation to anti-doping and pro cycling. This work in pro cycling was the focus of a two-day conference at Deakin University organised by Martin Hardie from the School of Law. Floyd Landis was one high profile attendee that attracted attention.
David was recently appointed associate editor of the Journal of Sport Management, the field's leading journal. His recent publications include: 'Using grounded theory in sport management research', International Journal of Sport Management and Marketing, with Assoc Prof Popi Sotiria, and articles on sport governance co-authored with Dr Lesley Ferkins in Sport Management Review and the Journal of Management and Organisation, and Managing Leisure.
David conducted the annual student early career workshop, and contributed to a sport governance workshop at SMAANZ in Wellington. He gave a keynote address at the NZ Recreation Association conference there.

Paul received acknowledgement as a top ten researcher within the Faculty of Business and Law in 2010 at the Faculty Awards Seminar held late last year and attended the SMAANZ conference in Wellington in November, presenting a paper on 'Regulation in a changing broadcasting environment: perspectives of professional sport in Australia'.
