Isle of Man Sport host the 2019 Sports Lecture with guest speaker Prof Damian Hughes

What makes a winning culture?

Damian Hughes is a bestselling author and Professor of Organisational Psychology and Change at Manchester Metropolitan University.  Come and listen to Damian's intriguing presentation which will endeavour to answer the question "what makes a high performance culture?"

The Island has a microcosm of successful cultures and punches above its weight in performance sport.  What is the secret to our success? What can we learn from Damian's research and experiences about other winning cultures that may well reflect in our own, or indeed help to develop our own culture further?

Damian is an international speaker and bestselling author who combines his practical and academic background within sport, organisational development and change psychology, to help organisations and teams to create a high performance culture.

He is currently serving as a member of the coaching team for Scotland Rugby Union and Canberra Raiders.  His innovative and exciting approach has been praised by Sir Richard Branson, Muhammed Ali, Sir Terry Leahy, Sir Roger Bannister, Tiger Woods, Jonny Wilkinson and Sir Alex Ferguson.
