SSS Conference 2023

Each year conference brings the curtain down on another year of student sport. Over 2 days delegates hear from experts from within the sector, network with peers and challenge ways of thinking.

Watch this space for all the details of our 2023 Conference taking place in June.

Presenters at our 2022 #BackInTheGameConference included:

As she explains in her talks, this discomfort is the ticket to our dreams.
