To keep this agenda high-energy, content-rich and valuable to all of us interested in such a broad topic there will be 4 speakers per session plus a moderator. 20 speakers across the whole day. If you have been to a TEDx then you will be familiar with the format we are adopting as the introduction to each panel. We will combine this format with a moderated Q&A for the panel with significant audience interaction.
Olympic legend Greg Louganis will be joining our impressive line up of Sydney panelists by video link from the USA.
Richard is the Managing Director and Founder of Global Elite Sports who are a recruitment company providing past and present athletes with job placement opportunities via strategic alliances with key partners across many industries throughout Australia and New Zealand. Global Elite Sports have a detailed understanding of what it takes for athletes to be ready to enter the workforce and have established relationships with businesses across a wide variety of industries that recognise the qualities, attributes and values that many former athletes can bring to their organisations. Richard will be joining us on the Career Transition panel and will be available for chats throughout the day.
A broken leg in 2008 (while playing rugby for the UK) was the tipping point for one of Thinktank Scouts founders, Sam Mutimer, when she became aware of the true power of social media and how it plays a role in branding and business as a whole. Sam launched her own company, Thinktank Social in 2011, as a ‘niche’ social media agency – one of Australia’s very first.
She now is following her passion to assist athletes, clubs, academies and organisations, to support and empower the “entrepreneurial” athlete to business success.
