Masters in Sports Directorship Convention
A team from The Sports Office have attended a high-profile networking and education event for leaders in elite sport. The Masters in Sports Directorship Convention was staged at Manchester Metropolitan University’s Business School.
Sports Office staff were among delegates from more than 250 global sports organisations. Client Manager Chris Tuson, Business Development Manager Sean Pike and Marketing Coordinator Lori Scriven showcased the company’s range of performance management systems for elite sport, including the new Manager’s App. The event also included seminars, a keynote speaker and discussion panels focusing on the role of the elite sporting director.
Business Development Manager Sean Pike commented: “The event was a great success and we would like to thank all the Manchester Metropolitan University staff and all guest speakers.
“It was fascinating to discuss issues around performance management systems for elite sport and performance analysis. We look forward to continuing our dialogue with the many people we met.”
The event’s keynote speaker was Leyton Orient owner and Dunkin Donuts chairman Nigel Travis. His presentation focussed on successful cultures and leadership and in elite sport. The Sports Office team also attended a ‘Winning with Analytics’ seminar, hosted by former Chelsea FC statistics and analysis expert Garry Gelade.
