Chantal had no idea she was going to start a tennis academy one day but she was quickly drawn in by Mathieu’s vision. As the marketing plan began to evolve, she started to see the project unfolding and became excited about being a part of Mathieu’s plan to develop Academy (360). She realized her entrepreneurial and marketing expertise was going to be key components to helping Mathieu’s vision become reality.
We all know that only one in a million athletes will achieve a top 10 ranking in the world. Chantal is convinced that with tools such as self-esteem, being able to overcoming objections, instilling a drive to work hard work through determination, integrity, discipline and how to handle defeat, that even if a person doesn’t become a top 10 champion, every athlete who steps through the doors and onto the courts at Academy (360) will use what they’ve learned to grow personally and professionally along their life’s journey. That is also Academy (360)’s vision for each athlete.
