EABS (Elite Athlete Business School) want you to love what you do AND have confidence doing it - in both your professional and personal life.

Our absolute passion is providing you with the tools and knowledge to help you achieve this, to empower you, to provide a pathway to your goals (both on and off the field). In our eyes, if you love what you do then you've already found success.

Our experienced presenters have spent years working with athletes and/or being athletes. They have an understanding of the pressures and challenges in the lives of an athlete - and have walked in your footsteps - they get it! Having this insight into the life of an athlete is imperative to help us help you.

We know that engagement is key to learning so our delivery methods and content are relaxed and most importantly FUN. All of our professional development workshops have been created to build confidence in areas such as public speaking and storytelling, media skills, leadership, effective communication, time management, networking and goal setting. All of these skills, and topics you know and do as athletes, so let's look at how we can transfer and use them in all areas of your life!

All workshops are customisable, in fact we love collaborating with our clients to ensure all objectives are not only met but exceeded. Real life skill sets that can be utilised in your sporting career AND are transferable to life outside of your career.
