Hi! I’m Peter and I deliver lesson 8 of Break Into Sport where I will show you how to find your passion and unleash your potential as you start on your journey into a successful and fulfilling career in sport business.
You know you want to work in sport but you're not exactly sure what you want to do or even what the different opportunities are within sport business. You want to hear from people who work in the industry today, about what it's like and receive advice on how to land your first role.
Well that's what I do! I have a long and successful career in sport and I am also a mentor at Sport Calling, the online sport business school. I am committed to supporting the next generation of sport business professionals develop their careers in the industry.
A bit more about me:
I have a twenty-year career under my belt in sport and entertainment and the last fourteen of those have been spent in senior roles in sport business. Today, I am a Founding Partner of Sport Collective, a sports rights and marketing agency working with clients such as Nike, EE, UK Sport, The PFA, Bloodhound, and Rhino Rugby. I am also a retained FIFA consultant, working with FA’s all over the world on their commercial and marketing strategy.
I spent seven years as Group Head of Sponsorship at The FA where I sourced, negotiated and managed high profile partnership deals such as Wembley Stadium connected by EE, The FA Cup with Budweiser and the England team sponsored by Vauxhall. These deals are collectively worth over $250m. Prior to The FA I was a senior manager at Sky Sports and before that that I was head of new media at Turner Broadcasting.
I am excited to be offering free access to lesson 8 of Break Into Sport as I am very proud of the course we have created and the depth of content we get to share with you.
"In the minefield that is the pathway into sport business, this is a great leap in the right direction".
