Wed 9 November 2016, 14:00 – 16:00 GMT
Are you aged between 16-24 years old? Then this event is for you!
Despite being best known for their incredible achievements in the world of sport, there’s a different side to many athletes that isn’t seen so often: the entrepreneur. Having developed skills such as leadership, resilience, teamwork, assertiveness and determination – all skills associated with successful business owners – it’s perhaps no wonder that several sports people have enjoyed successful second careers as entrepreneurs.
At this event, being held in the exclusive press room of the Principality Stadium, former sports stars Alix Popham and Tom Shanklin will share their transition stories from sport to business.
With little or no formal business qualifications, these individuals will tell tales of significant life events (both on and off the pitch) that have helped prepared them for a future in business.
