Opening Keynote

‘Future Proofing Through the Lens of Sport’ with Mark Stevenson

Mark Stevenson is one of the world’s most respected thinkers on technology and societal trends – helping you see where the world is going – and how to adapt. He is the author of two best selling books on the future and innovation, An Optimist’s Tour of the Future and the award-winning We Do Things Differently: stories from the frontline of the future, and a ongoing strategic advisor to organisations as diverse as Medicines Sans Frontiers (Doctors Without Borders), the GSMA and Virgin.

From Student Sport to Student Support – We all have a part to play.

Drawing from his 18 years of experience as a Director of Sport, current BUCS Inclusion Chair & Director of Student Life at Robert Gordon University, Filippo Antoniazzi, will give an insight into the daily challenges facing student services. Filippo will identify that the unique manner in which university and college sports departments work in genuine partnership with students is the future in building communities and supporting our students.
