Sport Calling offers live workshop based training for businesses and online course training for individuals. Our business clients range from major confederations such as UEFA to sports agencies such as SMG Insight. All courses are run with a global perspective by experts who work in the sport industry today and all our training includes mentoring and support during and after every course.
Our first online course for individuals called Break Into Sport is insightful, thought provoking and inspirational. It gives users first-hand, up-to-date knowledge to make them sound like a seasoned pro and key career advice that will give them the edge over their peers and help them to fulfil their potential. We are not academics, we work in the business of sport today and want to share our expertise and experience in the most effective and efficient way to achieve results.
