Premier League Director Of Elite Performance Addresses Fitness First Conference


the barclays premier league On 3rd December 2014, Champions Speakers booked the Barclays Premier League Youth Department’s Director of Elite Performance, Dan Hunt, to deliver a keynote speech to a staff conference run by global fitness brand, Fitness First. The event saw the company’s Global Executive Team, Senior Managers and General Managers gather at London’s Olympic Park in the ArcelorMittal Orbit, well-known as the former Olympic Media Centre and the UK’s tallest sculpture. Over the past year Fitness First have gone through an extensive rebranding and refurbishment programme in the UK and for the event to have been held at the Olympic Park worked well as a tie-in to their recently announced relationship with TEAM GB as official fitness partner. Dan Hunt was poached from Team Sky by the Premier League in 2013 to lead their £340 million Elite Player Performance Plan (EPPP) aimed at developing and bringing through greater numbers of quality home-grown young footballers into the top flight. Hunt twice enjoyed Tour de France wins with Team Sky, following the victories of Sir Bradley Wiggins and Chris Froome, after having earlier greatly influenced the success of British Cycling women’s programme at the Beijing Olympics in 2008
