Nick Willsmer, from the Department for Heath at the University of Bath, discusses a funded project initiated by a student to run a conference for the Sports Performance field that involved a range of senior external academics as keynotes and research talks, practitioners from a range of fields, and undergraduate students presenting on dissertation topics. The event was successful and Nick presents the background, what they did and finally some of the lessons learnt.
