After great feedback regarding our first ever Sports Performance Masterclass last year, we decided to host a second event. This time the exclusive invite only occasion was held at the Grange Wellington Hotel in London, welcoming a host of senior leaders and expert practitioners from a variety of teams and Olympic sports, as well as senior members from governing bodies, federations and teams/clubs.

The Agenda:

  • 08:45am – Registration and Networking

The Panel:

Like last year, the event was led by 3 different panels of experts. Using their unique and diverse blend of experience to serve as a powerful catalyst, the panellists were able to engage the audience to discuss and exchange expert ideas and knowledge. The discussion was held without press and under Chatham House Rules, which allowed for an open and free flowing debate.

This Sports Performance Masterclass was expertly moderated by our Managing Director, David Slemen.
