Ahead Of The Game … It’s Back!

After Covid forced the cancellation of our 2020 Ahead Of The Game events, we’re can’t wait to get together in two iconic venues – Twickenham Stadium and Old Trafford – to bring together athletes and businesses on 23 March (London) and 30 March (Manchester) 2022.

Athletes: come along if you want to build your network, educate yourself on building your professional brand and connect with employers. Businesses: we’d love to hear from if you want to learn more about exhibiting at this event to access this unique talent pool. Either way, please drop our Events Manager Miriam a line to register. See below to watch the highlights video of our 2019 event.
