Olympic cycling champion Laura Kenny named as keynote speaker for Active Uprising

Britain’s most successful female Olympian, Laura Kenny, has been announced as one of the keynote speakers for ukactive’s Active Uprising in Manchester this summer.

Kenny, a four-time Olympic champion, will share her success story with guests at the event which takes place from 21 to 23 June.

ukactive CEO Steven Ward said: "Laura’s passion for sport and physical activity is clear for all to see and she has an incredible story to share with delegates."

ukactive has also announced two headline speakers from the world of human performance for the event – Mike Collier, the man behind McLaren Applied Technology’s Human Performance Centre of Excellence and EXOS founder and human performance expert Mark Verstegen.

The duo will share their experience in applying performance-based methodology, nurturing talent, performance improvement and delivering personalisation at scale to impact population health.

Active Uprising will combine a conference and the ukactive Awards and will culminate in the Active Uprising Weekend – a festival of physical activity across Greater Manchester.

The conference will bring together five major streams, spanning the breadth of the physical activity sector – SWEAT North, ActiveLab, Community, ukactive Kids and Ignite.

The ActiveLab strand includes ActiveLab Live, which represents the climax of ukactive’s 12-week start-up accelerator programme, showcasing this year’s cohort as each company presents their project in a live forum.

Speakers joining the ActiveLab strand include Philip Newborough, CEO of Bridges Fund Management; Jim Graham, managing director of Nonlinear Thinking; and Jason Worthy, VP fitness solutions and innovation at Life Fitness.

Steven Ward added: “The wider agenda for Active Uprising has been built in collaboration with our members and partners to represent the very latest thinking shaping the future evolution of our sector.

"Active Uprising will have an unrivalled agenda with clear take-homes for every attendee.

“Together, we’ll explore the rapid pace of innovation, the future trends in fitness, community-level partnerships, the health of the next generation, and cutting-edge learning and development opportunities."
