Interview with

Arnold Bassanoo | graduate 2019

How has the programme contributed or added value to your career?
This programme has given the competencies to mainly attract sponsors for the cricket teams in my community who I work with every season to ensure participation of youths in a sport. I've gained much knowledge in attracting sponsors and how to market a team during a tournament.
What were the benefits of the programme to your current position?
This programme has educated me to better manage the cricket teams I am involved with and also I have been able to attract other teams wanting my assistance in the management of football and cricket tournaments since I finished the programme in 2019. Through this programme, I have interacted with many people from different sporting and cultural backgrounds which have helped to broaden my outlook on the way sport should be administered.
What was your best memory/highlight of the programme?
It is very difficult to choose the best memory or highlight of this wonderful programme, however, I really enjoyed and learned a lot from the sports law classes and the Disciplinary hearing group assignment I would choose as one of my best memory of the programme.
Any additional comments about the programme.
I could still remember my interview day for this programme and what stood out for me from that day onwards was the kindness and willingness of the staff members attached to this programme. It made learning so much easier for me.
The programme is well organized and once students are willing to go the extra mile, is only then you will see the true beauty if this programme.
In closing, I would like to thank you for the opportunity to be part of this programme.  I certainly have learned a lot and have some memories from this programme that would last me a lifetime. Lima, Peru was a blast, can't wait for another trip with you all.
