Roulette is not only the oldest of the classic casino table games, it is apart from the slot machines also the most played casino game ever. The reason for the widespread use of this game is the easy-to-understand rules of the game, the exciting game principle and at the same time many different betting options with which you can pursue different strategies. Depending on the betting option, you will receive either slightly smaller payouts or with more risk a profit of up to 35 times the bet. gamblehub By far the most popular variant of this table game is the European one. This is mainly due to the fact that the chances of winning here are much better (only 2.7% House advantage) than with the American version (5.4%). In addition to the absence of the Double Zero, the La Partage rule increases the chances of winning slightly, however, this is not often found at the tables. https://roulette-explorer.webnode.com/l/the-martingale-roulette-system-does-it-work/

Life after sport  – Career transition for Professional Sportspeople

We deliver our following Career Transition services via  coaching and/or workshops sessions, both in person or via electronic media:

How many professional sportspeople think about what their career might look like after their professional sporting days are over?  Many are focused on either building up or enjoying their sport, and it is not until an injury or retirement sees them ending their sporting career, that they turn their minds to life after their sport.

We assist sportspeople to identify their transferable skills and show them how they can be used and marketed in a different way.  This opens up a range of work/career options that align with their skills, interests and motivations.   Our coaching and/or workshop session(s) assist sportspeople to gain confidence that there is a life after sport and how they can work towards this and explore their options.

A selection of comments from Career Development workshop attendees

What was most valuable?

  • Identifying values – helped to identify type of role/environment most suitable to me. And talking about achievements – not something I usually think about.  Interesting to hear what skills people identify
  • A lot of personalised information to take away and work/reflect on. Looking at my achievements and the relevant skills
  • Broad range of information and points to think about; really nice presentation
  • Taking the time out to think this through with the support of the structured approach
  • Time dedicated to personal strengths and values; how to process and what’s next; different tools to identify overlapping themes; input form other workshop participants
  • The preparation prior to the workshop was useful in terms of time and how the mind was attuned in this way; Cynthia manages to give some one-to-one feedback in the group

What will you do differently as result of this workshop?

  • Think about values and how this will influence career decisions rather than just strategic choices
  • Think more about networking for roles rather than being stuck in the traditional way
  • Totally reassessing career, changing focus, development
  • My CV
  • Look more at my internal options as on reflection my organisation is a pretty good place
  • Reflect and articulate next steps
