The course far exceeded my expectations. It was clear and precise and taught me so much. It helped me understand what my strengths are, what I would be good at and how I can transfer my current skills. Even though breaking into the Sports Industry seems like a daunting task, this course provides the resources and coaching I need to confront the challenge with confidence and knowledge

Thanks very much for the course - I got the internship with Slingshot! At interview I was asked the exact sponsorship activation questions you suggested. The course also gave me an excellent feel for the landscape of the sport business industry
