The world of sports can teach you a lot.

Hard work, goal setting, sacrifice, discipline, practice, strategy, teamwork, leadership, management, overcoming adversity, dealing with failure, celebrating success; sports provides us with a wealth of opportunities to learn.

As a passionate sports fan I have always been interested in these lessons, which is why I started The Sports Marketing Playbook; a place where I write and share stories from the world of sports so you can approach your career like an athlete!

If you’re a sports fan with an interest in marketing, design, branding, business, and leadership, then this is the place for you.

TSMP looks at topics such as the strategies of athletic apparel brands, visual identities of sports teams, and leadership stories from sports pros — among many more — and brings them together in a series of posts that combine vibrant imagery with simple storytelling.

Crafted at the intersection of sports and marketing, this is a project that unites two of my passions to help build your brand, grow your organisation, and fuel your personal development.

I hope you find this Playbook interesting, insightful, and enjoyable.

Happy reading,
