Professor Tom Cannon speaks to our Year 13 Students

On Wednesday 7 September Professor Tom Cannon, Professor Emeritus of Strategic Development at the University of Liverpool Management School came to Upton Hall School to have lunch with our Head Girl’s Team and to talk to Year 13 students as part of their enrichment programme.

He shared knowledge into his area of expertise on sports finance, economics and business notably professional sports including football, Formula 1 racing, cricket, rugby, tennis, horse-racing, and American football.  He is often featured on Sky Sports, BBC and Bloomberg giving his view on sports events.  Professor Cannon has written over 20 books and 100 academic papers and he is also Chief Executive of Idepolis International, a Liverpool-based knowledge & ideas company aimed at developing urban communities of the future.

The students very much enjoyed his presentation and took inspiration from his achievements. Thank you to Professor Cannon for taking the time to speak to our students and for his fascinating insight into his extensive experience.
