Thuzio Connects Athletes with the Public

thuzioThuzio provides an online platform that connects the public with professional athletes who have achieved the highest levels of excellence in their profession.

The athletes provide a variety of different experiences to the public such as: coaching, social dinners and lunches, game watching and analysis, corporate speaking, client entertaining and events, celebrations including birthday parties and bar mitzvahs, flag football, golf outings, charity event hosting and auction items.

Athletes such as baseball’s R.A. Dickey and Keith Hernandez, football’s Eric Dickerson and Lawrence Taylor, basketball’s Zach Randolph and Caron Butler and hockey’s Clark Gillies and Mike Bossy grace the roster of Thuzio for event experiences.

Thuzio helps the public connect to professional athletes and other talent for unforgettable experiences. They make it easy to book online by providing pricing, handling all the communications, payments and logistics with the talent, and ensuring a great customer experience.

Thuzio also offers athletes a way of keeping their lives in check financially after their sports career is over.

Nearly 80 per cent of professional athletes end their pro career without any kind of fall back plan financially. They wind up jobless and fall into financial trouble which can lead to bankruptcy and divorce. Thuzio pays the athlete 80 percent of the fees collected and retains the rest.

The company was founded by former NFL running back Tiki Barber – of New York Giants fame – and Mark Gerson, the co-founder and Chairman of Gerson Lehrman Group (GLG), the largest expert network company in the world.

    I think that what you typed was very logical. But, think on this, what if you typed a catchier post title?
    I ain’t suggesting your content isn’t good., but what if you added a post title
    that makes people want more? I mean Thuzio
    Connects Athletes with the PublicSports Networker is kinda vanilla.
    You ought to glance at Yahoo’s home page and watch how they write article
    headlines to grab people to click. You might add a related video or a related picture or two to grab readers
    interested about what you’ve written. Just my
    opinion, it might bring your blog a little
    livelier.
