The world of athlete and artist management is divided firmly into 3 groups. Those who have no idea that the current “transactional” model is harming their clients, those that know but don’t care, and those who believe that it’s time to change the way the industry works.
At WeAreTENZING our team members sit firmly in the third camp. We are the catalyst for change, constantly innovating and improving services to enable exceptional people live significant lives.
