Olympic gold medallist becomes brand ambassador for ICMS
We are proud to announce Kerri Pottharst, Olympic gold medallist and one of Australia’s most loved athletes, as an ambassador for our sports management program.
This arrangement will see Pottharst act to inspire ICMS students to work hard to reach their goals through guest lectures, team building sessions and motivational speeches at college events and prize giving occasions.
“I have always been passionate about empowering young people to reach their potential, no matter what their background, so I am excited to join the ICMS team as their sports ambassador,” commented Kerri Pottharst. “I am eager to begin my new role – my 20+ years as an elite athlete have taught me the importance of sports management for any athlete, and I have been looking for new outlets to focus my passions in this area. ICMS was top of my list.”
A leading name in the sports industry, Pottharst had a strong relationship with ICMS over many years especially since moving to the northern beaches in 1996.
“Kerri is one of Australia's best known and well-loved athletes so we are both proud and excited to announce this new role. By becoming a champion and staying at the top of her field for over 20 years, she fits fantastically with the values and ethos of ICMS. We hope that Kerri’s winning formula of hard work and top class results will motivate new and existing students, male and female, to reach their potential and become leaders of the future,” commented Dr Mike Berrell, Deputy Vice Chancellor, Academic Operations at ICMS.
Sports management is one of the most popular business courses at ICMS, offered as a three year Bachelor program combining practical industry experience with class room learning and access to high-profile sporting associations, managers and athletes such as Pottharst.
I have a son and I feel, now more than ever, that it is important to provide guidance to young people and sport is a great way to do this. The sports management course at ICMS is a great program attended by a lot of very talented students and I am thrilled to become part of their learning experience
