St Mary’s are delighted to launch the first of three “Ideas Exchange” events this academic year.  The Ideas Exchange is a series of quick-fire lectures from a range of top academics. Each thought-provoking talk is only eight minutes long (or short) and will usually cover a wealth of topics from media, politics and history to sport, emotions and science!  This event however is a special football takeover. The line-up will include a diverse panel of guest speakers from different coaching and sport science backgrounds within the football industry. The purpose of the day will be to problematise some of the contemporary issues and trends within the game and offer collaborative solutions to inform practice.
