The 2012 Leaders in Performance conference launched this week with an expanded programme and a range of new interactive features to further improve the attendee experience.

The invite-only, exclusive event is taking place at Chelsea FC on the 10th and 11th October 2012.

Launched in 2009 as part of the prestigious Leaders Sport Summit, the event has a track-record of hosting the biggest names in sport to share insights into their approach and the innovations that deliver sporting excellence.

The organisers have been working closely with the conference Advisory Board, comprising of, amongst others, Chelsea FC, New York Knicks, British Cycling and the US Olympic Committee, to build this year’s programme, and have announced 3 main themes for 2012: the Science of Performance, the Analysis of Performance and Innovation for Performance.

Leaders CEO, James Worrall, says “Along with our expert Advisory Board, we have consulted extensively with our clients to select the very top people to speak this year and I’m really excited about the level of insight we’ll be delivering for attendees. We’re also introducing a number of focussed roundtable discussions, moderated by top experts in a range of disciplines, to draw on the extensive expertise in the audience. We’ll provide an unrivalled framework for sharing ideas and global best practice in elite performance.”

The Leaders in Performance in conference is a closed-doors, senior summit for the leading global figures in the delivery of sporting excellence. It has a strict vetting procedure for attendees and sells out every year. Delegates wishing to apply for a pass to attend are encouraged to do so at the earliest opportunity to avoid disappointment.
