Troupe21's Player Networking Event In Miami, Thursday, February 1, 2007

I talked to Guy Troupe, President of Troupe21, about two years ago and just before his second Players Networking Event. It's a great idea and well-presented as well. If you have a business that can benefit from working with a former NFL player, and you're going to be in Miami for Super Bowl XLI, contact Guy. The text below is from his website. Here's the location and info:

Troupe21's Player Networking Event
Location: Bank of America Tower

The Player Networking Event™, an exclusively owned property of Troupe21 & Associates, was created to help current and former athletes transition from sports. In major team sports such as baseball, men’s and women’s basketball, hockey, football and men’s soccer—statistics say that over 1,000 professional athletes are forced to retire from a playing career each year—and an additional 30,000 athletes competing in these sports at NCAA member schools must transition to the traditional world of work annually. When faced with transition at such a young age players are looking to associate with new teams, and powerful brands, that will provide them with opportunities to display the transferable skills they have acquired as a result of years of practice and competition.

The Player Networking Event™, also known as PNE, is designed to help current and former athletes understand the importance of networking and helps to facilitate (1) athlete-to-athlete partnerships and consulting relationships; (2) exposure for organizations in place to help athletes with career transition; (3) recruiting opportunities for corporations targeting athletes as future employees; (4) access for corporations targeting athletes for partnerships, endorsement and franchising opportunities, and (4) targeted sales and marketing opportunities.

PNE, which began in professional football at the NFL Super Bowl in 1999, is a three hour networking extravaganza with soft music, food, beverages and display booths for major corporations interested in working with athletes. Sponsors and Strategic Allies help to make PNE a worthwhile experience for all involved. Click one of the links below to learn more about the expansion of PNE.
