The first ever Leaders in Performance was a noticeable success.

The 2009 Conference Programme drew on the latest strategies and advances across a wide range of sports including cycling, tennis, athletics, US sports and football and appealed to those responsible for improving sporting performance whatever their field of play.

Specific areas covered included:

  • How to buy and sell talent at the right time and the right price?
  • How do you develop strategies to create a winning environment for sustained success?
  • How do you build and lead a High Performance Management team?
  • How do you successfully apply the use of innovative medical, sport science and psychological techniques to create a winning edge?
  • What are the key criteria for developing a team environment to maximize player/athlete performance across different stages of a player’s career?
  • How do you successfully identify, screen and recruit elite players / athletes?
  • What are the most successful commercial models in the business of player management?
