The Leaders Performance Institute has partnered with technological innovators KINEXON to grow awareness of sensor technology, with the aim of helping elite athlete performance.
KINEXON’s tracking technology works by placing wearable intelligent sensors on athletes, which combine with an intuitive web-application to collect data in real time to measure, analyse and visualise the athletic and tactical performance of teams and individuals.
“Leaders is committed to shining a spotlight on innovation in the performance space. We’re excited to join forces with this fantastic brand, who are already bringing benefits to our members across the NBA and beyond. With the increased opportunities available from technology in sport, it’s the perfect time for us to work with Kinexon to educate the industry on how technology can help teams and leagues drive their performance and inform their decision making.” Laura McQueen, Managing Director, Leaders in Sport
KINEXON boasts an impressive roll-call of clients, including 14 teams from the NBA including the Philadepliphia 76ers. The 76ers have gone so far as to credit Kinexon for keeping all-star Joel Embiid at the top of his game (sportstechie).

We are glad to partner up with the most important global network in sport, and look forward to bringing elite sports performance to the next level of data analytics.” – Maximilian Schmidt, Co-founder and Managing Director, KINEXON Sports & Media
