Strong performers 

Our part­ners see the poten­ti­al in the uncon­ven­tio­nal care­er path taken by eli­te ath­le­tes. They under­stand the power of their high-per­for­mance mind­set, honed over many years in the cru­ci­ble of com­pe­ti­ti­ve sport, and belie­ve they can make a posi­ti­ve impact in busi­ness. They are keen to posi­ti­on them­sel­ves as attrac­ti­ve employ­ers for for­mer ath­le­tes, and to pro­mo­te the long-term bene­fits that come from a top-level sporting career.
