Save the date - Public lecture 2021: What makes the world's best athletes tick?

Save the date for this public lecture delivered by Dr David Fletcher, Senior Lecturer in Sport and Performance Psychology at Loughborough University, on 21 July 2021.

In this presentation, Dr David Fletcher delves into the psychology of what it takes to win at the highest level of sport. He argues that although there is much to admire about and learn from the world’s best athletes, there are also some darker aspects to becoming and being a champion athlete.

Dr David Fletcher is one of the world’s leading performance psychologists. His experience of consulting with high-level performers spans the past 20 years and includes working closely with Olympic and world champions from a variety of sports, special forces and military personnel, and senior leaders and their teams in FTSE 100 and Fortune 500 companies.

He has published widely in performance psychology and consulting, including ground-breaking research studies in scientific journals and practical articles that demystify complex human phenomena.
