Once you've successfully hired from our talent pool of elite sportsmen and women, we work closely with you and the athlete to support the transition process with a dedicated psychologist, relationship manager and communications specialist to amplify messaging both internally and externally.

the warrior queen

advisory staff - ey usa

Named after a 17th century Angolan warrior queen, American female foil fencer and bronze medallist, Nzingha Prescod, has been demonstrating to the world that success both in sports and business, is not defined nor limited by background, gender or race. Spoken like a modern-day warrior, during the opening shots of a short documentary made by the National Geographic in 2016, Nzingha states "I don't like to fight people; but you can't get by without fighting."
