Students attend showpiece conference

First year Sport Business Management undergraduates were invited to attend the recent Leisure & Fitness exchange leadership conference at Middleton Arena, Manchester.

The conference included presentations from leaders at Fitpro, Technogym and Alliance Leisure. The event provided students with the opportunity to see what current leadership thinking is in the leisure and fitness industry, but also the chance to network with sport and leisure managers.

Student Rachael Durband said: "Everyone was really welcoming and we made a lot of contacts within the industry. A couple of these have even offered us some work experience within their facilities."

The group made a big impression on the organisers, with Burnley Leisure's Neil Hutchinson commenting they had represented UCLan well and had posed some excellent questions.
