WELCOME TO THE g6 BUSINESS ACADEMY

EMPOWERING THE NEXT GENERATION OF LEADERS THROUGH SPORT

Our g6 Business Academy uses the natural connection between sports and business to create a unique and fun programme for children and young people. It teaches important leadership, mindset and business skills through sports-related examples.

MINDSET IS EVERYTHING


At g6, we combine the excitement of sports with business skills to train future leaders. By connecting sports and business, our coaching is fun and easy to understand, helping kids learn and develop important business skills.

OUR MISSION
We are dedicated to nurturing young minds to help develop leadership, resillience, communication, teamwork, and strategic thinking skills.

Our goal is to empower young people with the mindset they need to excel in their careers and personal lives.


"If we coach children the essentials of business early, we are preparing them for tomorrow; we are lighting the path to greatness, shaping leaders who will inspire and transform the future."

THE GAP

Traditional education often focuses on academic subjects and is not always aligned to the rapidly changing business landscape. This lack of integration on modern skills (AI, digital literacy, global awareness and innovation) can leave a gap in real-world skill development. Children and young people may therefore struggle to become future leaders, business owners, innovators or entrepreneurs and will be unable to compete on a global stage.

WE ARE DEDICATED TO FILLING THIS GAP.

WHY CHOOSE g6 BUSINESS ACADEMY?

Our courses, events and 1-2-1 sessions are designed with age and stage in mind. We foster creativity, critical thinking, and leadership abilities, setting the foundation for a successful future.

Academy founder Claire Smillie is an accredited business coach and is the owner of business growth consultancy, g6. She brings her passion for sports (having played at a national level) and expertise in business to serve as the Lead Coach of the academy.

Claire owns three of her own businesses, is the co-founder of a new mobile app and is a Director of two companies. A sought after professional, Claire started her first business at the age of 21.

Find out more about Claire on her g6 Business Growth Consultancy website.

WHERE LEADERS ARE MADE...

We believe that business and entrepreneurship know no age limits, so our academy coaching starts as young as 6 and continues up to 16 years old.

Our coaching takes place throughout the year and is organised in age groups. Delivery can range from an intense one week course to a block of eight consecutive weeks (one per week).

1-2-1 sessions with Claire are also available.

Using real-world sports examples, children can immediately apply the business skills they learn. They become part of a community of peers and industry professionals who are excited to grow and succeed together.
