The football industry as well as the business of football is constantly evolving. Working in this dynamic industry, one must have an understanding of all aspects of football.
The business side of the game can aid impactful decision-making, planned processes and strategic vision. Having the opportunity to engage with industry expert speakers & mentors across the world through an online format allows my learning to be both flexible and accessible.
"I want to learn from credible people who are at the sharp end, working in football today facing the current challenges and finding solutions."
