Applying the Champion Mindset of Athletes in Business
Athlete Career Transition (ACT) was created through a combination of the career transition experiences of ACT’s Founders, retired Welsh International Rugby Union brothers, Andy and Steve Moore.
Coupled with the fact that professional athletes, from all sports are now retiring from their sporting lives with little knowledge or understanding of the skills they have built up over years of elite competition, ACT, in partnership with Sir Steve Redgrave, have developed a comprehensive transition program for athletes at all stages of their career and beyond. Enabling them to successfully transfer those skills into the appropriate business environments for them.
WHO WE ARE
Athlete Career Transition Directors Andy and Steve Moore, alongside Performance Psychologist Ben Paszkowec talk about Athlete Career Transition.
WE UNDERSTAND THE CORPORATE LANDSCAPE
We know that hiring an elite athlete isn’t part of the traditional hiring process. Fortunately, we’ve sat on both sides of the table and know the value athletes bring to an organisation,
not only as an outstanding opportunity to learn from another high performing environment, but for the brand and public relations opportunities that follow. Our specialists will work as part of your business to maximise each opportunity.

Working with Athlete Career Transition means that I can ask the questions and lean on someone for support when I need to (which I do) because I am totally new to this world. It’s nice to have people who are able to advise you on what is probably going to happen and where you are going to next. For me, more than anything it is the security that I need and also the constant communication between us gives me an understanding of where I should be going and what I should be aiming and striving for.
In addition to the day-to-day support, through the extensive profiling that ACT do, I’ve learnt an awful lot about myself. It really helped me to understand what I could take from the sporting world in order to be successful in the working world as well.
