Empowering professional athletes to secure their own futures.


Personal marketing is something that many professional athletes overlook. A well executed marketing strategy however, is a key element to securing better commercial deals.

Athlete Branding

It’s important for the public’s perception of you to be positive. We work with athletes to ensure their brand image reflects & enhances their best qualities which opens them up to more opportunities.

Athlete PR

When an athlete has something to say, it’s important to get that message to the right media channels to pass on to the public. From TV to radio, print and digital we can assist with pitching your stories.

Websites & Content

Whatever your requirements for your website, we have you covered. Couple this with a quality content marketing strategy and your online brand will be a lure to potential sponsors and partners.

Our vision is to help athletes maximize their opportunities and build a platform to help them avoid falling on hard times after retirement from sport. It happens way too much. We help athletes reach wider audiences and develop revenue streams along-side their athletic career, enabling them to focus on their job with peace of mind knowing a foundation is being laid for their future.

We understand that high level athletes have limited time at full earning potential while competing, this is why we strive to help you develop a reputable brand & business that allows you to transition into your second career as smooth as possible when the time comes. Whether that’s public engagements, coaching, a clothing line or any other business concepts you may have in mind. The key is to start early and while you’re still very much in the public eye, these years are important and need to be maximized if you’re to carry on being successful after competitive sport.

Its important to start NOW, retirement comes around a lot faster than you think. 



Six of 1 is a Sports Marketing, Management & PR Company. I launched Six of 1 in March 2013 because of the clear problem with professional athletes having financial trouble and lacking direction once they had retired from competitive sport. I could see the biggest problem was athletes waiting until retired before they put any real effort into their second career which is a dangerous game. The harsh truth is, once retired an athletes stock drops dramatically so its key to build something sustainable long before retirement. I would also argue that it should begin the minute you sign your first pro contract.

Prior to launching Six of 1, a sports focused business. I had worked as a PR & marketing consultant in the music business & general business sector for many years, but my passion for sport was always drawing me to focus in this area. 

If you’re a professional athlete you want either greater brand awareness, better brand reputation, more revenue opportunities, or very likely all of the above. Six of 1 is a full-service PR, brand management & marketing company who can help you build a sustainable personal brand and develop a business, all while allowing you to focus on your career.

I’ve contributed to major news outlets discussing the topic of sports branding, CNN being one of the largest.
