Welcome to this website and allow me to introduce myself.
I am Remco Tevreden, and worked up to 2012 in different sport organizations. Like many of you, I always adored international elite athletes, and followed the big international events on television.
When the moment arrived that I needed to decide for myself what direction I wanted to take with my studies, fortunate enough I was accepted in the MBA program (in the Netherlands), with the specialization in sports.
Looking at my last 15 years working as a sports professional, I feel very grateful to have experienced sports from different angles. From the lowest organizational level, to the highest level of the Olympic Games, I can say that I’ve been there. After the Olympics of 2008, I even found myself in the international court of Arbitration, against a giant international sports organization. A case which we lost, and I even may write another book on that in the future 😉
To make a long story short, the topic sportmanagement is one which still motivates me to go everyday do my work. Working in sports is something I am very grateful for, especially as I have influence in the development of athletes, and indirectly I try to make their DREAMS COME TRUE……isn’t that what life is about?
I want to make clear that I don’t consider myself as an authority in Sports Management. The purpose of this website is simply to provide practical information for volunteers and professionals about Management in Sports. I cannot do this by myself, so my goals with this website are the following:
- Write articles about sport management from a practical approach
- Post articles from other sports managers, around the world
- Do a weekly podcast SPORTENTIAL with an international sports manager
- Form a mastermind group, who will analyze the sports management world on a monthly basis
2018 UPDATE: After having worked for 5 years as the General Manager in our national University, I now have 1 year working for myself as an consultant. still am active as a sports administrator, like president of a local club. The last 6 years I am active as lecturer on Communication & Social Media, as part of the international Sportmanagement Masters program MEMOS. (www.memos.degree)
So if you want to join me, in helping this online platform be successful, please don’t hesitate to contact me!
And please come back!
PS: I live on this beautiful Caribbean island: CURACAO
