Entrepreneurial Athletes: “Stars to Shine” Mentorship Programme
Siobhán Bernadette Haughey made a history by winning two silver medals at the Tokyo Olympic Games. Yet there are other Hong Kong swimmers, like Vivian Lee, who have also won a silver medal in a competition.
Lee is an Asian Games Silver Medallist in Swimming. She founded the ActionHouse International Limited, a sports PR and event management firm, in 2005 after retired as an athlete and has managed over 300 international and major local events as well as press functions. She was invited to join as a mentor of the “Stars to Shine” Mentorship Programme launched by the Hong Kong Athletes Career & Education Programme under the Sports Federation & Olympic Committee of Hong Kong, China. The programme aims at providing newly retired athletes guidance in developing their second career.
“Every person, they are very unique, they have different strengths and weaknesses. And in each industry, the requirements are different. I would highly recommend them to take some opportunities, to really take up some internships or short-term contracts to explore what they really like.” said Lee.
