The event, organised by the Scottish FA’s director of football development, Jim Fleeting, was designed to keep UEFA Pro-Licence coaches on their toes with the latest developments in the coaching world.
It was also designed to give managers such as Lennon an insight into the pressures and responsibilities of top-flight management.
The day culminated in a question and answer session with the trio of successful managers.
And the Saints boss reckons he’s picked up a tip or two that will stand him in good stead – particularly with a cup final looming.
The attendance of the Home Association coaches was a major coup for Fleeting.
He said: “Firstly, I would like to express my gratitude to the national coaches for making the time in their busy schedules to come along and provide such wonderful insight to our coaches.
“All have reached the top of their profession and each told a unique and fascinating story on their particular coaching journey. That kind of opportunity is invaluable for those who aspire to be young coaches and it was great to hear all four speak to frankly and eloquently on the challenges they have encountered on their way to the top.”
Scots boss Strachan said: “I was fortunate to have played under some of the best coaches around for club and country - Sir Alex Ferguson, Jock Stein, Howard Wilkinson and Ron Atkinson among them.
“When you are involved day-to-day you don’t have time to discuss coaching in any detail which is why events like this are such a great idea.
“I could have listened to Roy Hodgson talk about his career all night.”
And the England boss added: “When Jim Fleeting called to ask if I was available I had absolutely no hesitation.
“I believe that you never stop learning as a coach and there is a responsibility on all of us who have been fortunate enough to make a career out of coaching to help the next generation by sharing our experiences.”
