Switched On
Are you switched on?

You’ve achieved something most only get to dream of: played competitive sport at an elite level. That’s an amazing accomplishment, but are you Switched On?


Switched On is a membership network for current and former athletes at all stages of their sporting career who want to start preparing for and make a success out of life outside of sport. Members get access to expert advice, a network of athlete peers from across all sports and tailored help creating an online profile which will help open up new opportunities whether you are still competing, or keen to make the most of your accomplishments.


Run by Switch The Play and powered by Wakelet, Switched On is an online platform which makes organising, finding and sharing content much easier.

So have you thought about:


Your ‘brand’ – how it can make or break you. How you present yourself via your online presence; behaviour; public appearances, personal interactions. Every action sends out a signal, be that positive or negative, which means everything you do can have an immediate and lasting impact on your own personal brand and the opportunities linked to it. It can take years and hard work to create a brand, but only seconds to damage it.


Your transferrable skills – the experiences you gain as an athlete are hugely valuable beyond sport – the key is knowing how to bring them together and present them in a compelling way.


Switched On isn’t just about life outside of sport, it is about how you develop yourself as a person now and develop your personal brand, which will help to smooth transition when the time comes. We also know that it is important to have a network of people from across different sports who may have had similar experiences, and can offer ideas, help and connections.


That’s where Switched On can help you.

“Professionals sometimes focus on what they don’t have any more or what they are about to lose. It doesn’t matter the level you played at, you go through the same emotions. What Switched On does is help bring sports professionals together to realise and articulate what they already have, organise it, and then showcase it. For some, its just a bit of help that’s needed in putting together an online visual CV, others need a bit more guidance and support along the way. Switched On does all that ….and it works.”
