Business & Sport

It would be fair to say that most business leaders have a liking and a curiosity for sport played at the highest level. They see these elite sports men and women dominate their space and have questions.

  • how do they cope with pressure?
  • how do they manage their private lives?
  • how do they motivate themselves?
  • what are they like?
  • what is their story?

Entrepreneurs and business leaders are so interested in elite sports they will pay hundreds or even thousands to listen to them speak.

Key subjects for sport & business:

  • peak performance
  • passion
  • adaptability
  • mental resilience
  • ambition
  • teamwork
  • problem solving
  • strategy
  • hard work
  • drive
  • competition

It makes sense there is an attraction from both sides.

If further proof was needed there are many former athletes doing incredible things, by breaking into the business world and creating new businesses from the ground up.
