    Coaching & Performance Conference Friday 28 th  - Sunday 30 th  November The Brooks Macdonald Coaching & Performance Conference organised by the Guernsey Sports Commission is confirmed to be taking place Friday 28 th  - Sunday 30 th  November here in Guernsey.This is the third conference of its kind and will provide local coaches, athletes and their parents with an even wider range of workshops than offered previously with an increased level of expertise. The conference is open to anybody with an interest in young people, sport, performance, learning and improvement in any sphere of life.On Friday evening at St. Sampson’s High School a series of keynote speeches will kickstart the weekend and will be headlined by Professor Vincent Walsh of University College London. Over Saturday and Sunday a team of specialists from the world of professional and international sport will join local speakers to provide a wide range of impactful workshops. Vincent Walsh is Professor of Human Brain Research at the Institute of Cognitive Neuroscience, UCL. He has specialised in human brain stimulation, perception and learning and has published seminal papers on real world problems such as dyslexia, mathematical learning, brain damage, sleep and plasticity in the adult brain. He has published over 300 papers and has been awarded a Royal Society Industry Research Fellowship to apply his knowledge in the medical and industrial sectors. He works as a psychological and neuroscience advisor with UK Sport, Team GB Sailing, Team GB Canoeing, Team GB Fencing, Team GB Gymnastics, the RFU, England Netball, GSK Human Performance Lab and has worked with many others including BP, Google, Selfridges, SAB Miller, the BBC, and the Royal Academy of Music.   He says, I like the move out of the lab and into daily life. It's a different challenge: either things work or they don't work, there's no hiding behind theories or unpublished experiments and I like the imperative to deliver something that can be used. His most recent   educational   role is as the Health and Environment Pathway Leader for the UCL BASc degree. Within three years this has become the largest humanities degree in UCL and it is leading the way in rethinking the purpose of university education in the UK. Of all his work, this is the most important and he believes will be   the work with the   longest lasting impact. Speakers on Friday evening include: Integrating Sport Science Tim Newenham The Neuroscience of Sport Vince Walsh 7 Marathons in 7 Days Warren Mauger & Philip Smith Observations of an Outsider Nic Pothas Guiding notes for the conference Jeremy Frith   Booking form for the Keynote speeches and workshops over the weekend can be found inside this booklet.
