Ep77 ‘Therapy Expo 2021 - Who To Watch?‘ with guests Mike Grice, Catherine Rimer and Stevie Barrat

In Ep.77 of the Sports Therapy Association Podcast, we take one last opportunity to talk about the up & coming Therapy Expo 2021, happening next week on Wednesday 24th & Thursday 25th at NEC Birmingham. Joining host Matt Phillips is Mike Grice, Director of Movement Therapy Education, STA regional rep Catherine Rimer, and STA member Stevie Barrat.

AND... in two week's time on Tuesday 30th of November in Episode 78 of the podcast, the same group will be back to discuss how the conference went!

We are obviously particularly excited this year as it will be a chance for listeners of the last 76 weeks of our podcast to finally meet up in person, in many cases for the first time face to face! Our podcast was born out of a demand created by the Covid-19 pandemic for communication, with therapists realising that much needed answers & support could be provided by talking with each other, as opposed to the traditional practice of keeping one's guard up in fear of losing clients!

Therapy Expo 2021 will therefore be a huge event on many levels. The Sport Therapy Association are the only professional association of our industry who have been at Therapy Expo every year since it first started in 2013, with a clear goal of providing face-to-face support for current STA members and be a clear, non biased source of information for soft tissue therapists interested in joining a professional association.

To celebrate the return of Therapy Expo in 2021, we have organised EIGHT presentations in the Therapy Update Theatre, which will be directly opposite the STA stand. The speakers are as follows:
