Ologists! The Good, The Bad and The Future Webinar

Ologists! The Good, The Bad and The Future of Working in Disciplines Webinar

This presentation will explore the profession we think we know well. Are you a sports scientist? Or do you prefer to align with your discipline, nutritionist/dietician, strength coach, physiologist or biomechanist. Or do you prefer to adopt a 'performance' tag to zhuzh up your job title; performance psychologists, performance analysts - assemble! 

In this presentation Steve will explore the origins of the field, the terms we use and why they don't help our critical role of supporting athletes and ask questions about the future of our work and why we might need to think differently, adapt and be willing to change to enhance our work.
