Theme: Youth Development

It’s a conference with a difference…we’re holding it online…and it lasts 24 hours! We will be pre-recording 24 presentations and releasing them one by one, each hour over the 24 hours,  exclusively to our delegates. Each hour will be dedicated to that presentation, topic and speaker.

We will be using our Twitter feed (@InspireCoachEd) as the conference arena for discussion and networking. In the weeks following the virtual conference, we will follow up with each expert speaker with an interview about their presentation and will collate questions to put to them that you’ve asked on Twitter or emailed in.

Delegates will then have access to all the presentations on demand via our ‘Delegates Access Area’ until October 29th 2017.

This virtual conference is a first for us. We want to harness the use of technology and connect like-minded coaches from all around the world. We hope that you join us for what will be an amazing, innovative experience. #NextGenCoaches

24 Hour Virtual Conference

What is a Virtual Conference?

It’s a conference…but entirely online. Forget the costs of travel, accommodation and of course, time off work. You can wake up and have your breakfast while watching one of our inspiring presentations. Then, log in to Twitter and see what other coaches are saying about the presentations and join in the conversation on our Twitter feed (@InspireCoachEd). You can visit the ‘Delegates Access Area’ which is located in the menu bar on this website.

It’s aimed at those involved in youth development and academy coaching (Primarily in the world of football/soccer but of course an opportunity from those involved in other sports to learn). That could be in the professional or amateur game. If you are an experienced coach and would like to learn more from other coaches or even if you are in the amateur game and would like to increase your knowledge and to up skill. We promote and actively encourage independant continuous professional development (CPD).

Networking at a conference can sometimes be a little bit awkward and you can’t get around to talk to everyone. How many times have you left a conference and not connected or got contact details of someone you wanted to talk to? Well, with the virtual conference things are about to change. Join our speakers, other delegates and us on our Twitter feed (@InspireCoachEd) before, during and after the conference. We encourage you to make connections via twitter and why not start your own DM group with other coaches / use chat web applications such as skype or google hangouts to have a group of coaches chat about the presentations and their views. You can also connect with our speakers on twitter. If you want to share your views and comment on the presentation, don’t forget to @ us (@inspirecoached) and also the speakers twitter handle (You can find them on the speakers bio on this website).
