WEBINAR: Starting an Online Business during the Coronavirus Crisis
Date: Tuesday, 7 April 2020
Duration: 30 minutes
Sabrina Stocker, founder of My Tennis Events & Active Dragons, and star of the 2018 series of BBC’s The Apprentice
A former tennis coach and player, Sabrina studied for her MBA at Edinburgh Business School, where she became the youngest person ever to graduate.
Combining her sports and business knowledge, Sabrina started her own events company, running tennis tournaments for children. From humble beginnings, where she used her own medals and trophies to give to the winning children, Sabrina expanded the company, running over 400 tennis tournaments a year with a team of 42 brand ambassadors, and a six-figure annual turnover.
In 2018, Sabrina captured the nation’s attention with her bright and bubbly personality, reaching the final rounds of BBC One’s The Apprentice TV Show, with Lord Sugar praising her to ‘have a natural raw talent for business’.
Since then, Sabrina has continued to grow My Tennis Events, partnering with David Lloyd, Virgin Active, Better and the LTA, and has recently launched a new venture – Active Dragons, which aims to educate the next generation to learn the 4Cs and entrepreneurship through workshops and camps. Encapturing both the private and non-private sectors, this new company is cultivating the ‘thinkers of the futures’.
