Tim Noakes: UCT Professor of Sports Science

I am Tim Noakes, co-founder and executive director of the Sports Science Institute of SA, author, respected academic and A1 rated scientist.

I am a Director of UCT/MRC Research Unit for Exercise Science and Sports Medicine, Department of Human Biology, Faculty of Health Science, University of Cape Town. I am also the Professor, Discovery Health Chair of Exercise and Sports Science, University of Cape Town. I have long been acknowledged as an expert in the field of sports and the science of physical exercise.

My idea worth spreading to present at TEDxCapeTown 2012 is about having the right mindset to learn and achieve.

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
