Community manager (Cycling) - Sydney
Combine your cycling passion and business intelligence to drive the growth and engagement of the International Cycling Executives (ICE) Sydney Community, in line with strategic and commercial objectives.
International Cycling Executives (ICE) were founded in 2012 and are a growing member based global business network for senior leaders, predominantly from large to medium listed companies – who share a passion for cycling. As a member centric organisation, ICE run a series of events connecting members and corporate partners over morning bike rides followed by relationship building sessions and business breakfast briefings discussing topics that are high on the executive agenda or featuring insights from members who have created a significant industry or market impact.
We have experienced exponential growth as people placed health and authentic relationships as one of their top priorities. Equally, companies are looking at aligning their brands with other organisations and initiatives that promote health and wellbeing.
In short we create a platform for members to make ‘connecting’ easier and healthier for senior executives, allowing them active and engaging ways to build authentic personal and professional relationships. Our community and team value a healthy, active lifestyle allowing us to stay connected and enjoy success, whilst navigating life and business challenges!
