Dame Louise Martin DBE, the Next @UniWestScotland Inspiring Women

Our next Inspiring Women Lecture takes place on Wednesday 18th March 2020 at our Lanarkshire Campus, Stephenson Place, Hamilton International Technology Park, South Lanarkshire, G72 0LH

Time: 12.30-1.30pm Venue: The Conference Suite

It will be delivered by ​Dame Louise Martin.  A sports administrator, retired athlete, nutritionist and former educator, Dame Louise has previously chaired Sports Scotland and the Commonwealth Games Council for Scotland during which time she was responsible for managing the budget ahead of the 2012 London Olympics including £30 million of investment in new facilities. 

Dame Louise led Scotland’s successful bid to host the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow, in 2014, and played a key role in its delivery.  The role of Secretary of the Commonwealth Games Federation from 1999-2015 preceded her appointment as President in 2015.  Dame Louise was appointed a Commander of the Order of the British Empire for ‘services to the Commonwealth Games’ in 2003, which was promoted to Dame Commander in the 2019 New Year Honours ‘for her services to sport’.

We are thrilled to be able to welcome Dame Louise to our award winning new Campus.

Why should I attend?  Come and hear from someone at the top of their field who can share insights into their experience and learn how success can take different forms for different people – one size doesn’t fit all, and not all paths are direct.

Who can attend? Anyone: professional or student or otherwise.  Plus it is open to those out with UWS and it’s not just open to women, everyone is welcome.  (Please note this event is not suitable for under-12s)

How much will it cost me? Nothing.  It is ticketed but free to attend.  Though spaces are limited so if you change your mind after booking a ticket (that’s not a problem, we realise life can get in the way sometimes) please let us know so someone else can get the chance to take your spot.
