The Career+ Programme formalised its Outreach programme in 2007 with the goal of providing athletes with the tools and skills to succeed in both their sporting and non-sporting careers. In the first 10 years, more than 8000 participants from 91 countries across the 5 continents have attended an Outreach workshop.

The Outreach workshops focus on the three pillars of the Career+ – education, life skills and employment – and they are delivered by a member of the NOC Athletes’ Commission, Olympians and/or Adecco managers and employment experts. 

These in-person sessions are delivered with a dynamic, hands-on approach designed to assist athletes at different stages of their sports careers, from the young to the retired.  Sessions can take place over one or two days depending on the time available.


Some of the topics covered in the Outreach workshop are:

  • Behavioural Discovery
  • Game Plan
  • Networking
  • Curriculum Vitae
  • Interviewing
  • Dual Career
  • Entrepreneurship
