Welcome to Tackling Transition
A unique, practical and clinically-underpinned resource that empowers professional athletes to take control of their transition out of sport and equips them with the psychological tools that will unlock their potential.
Tackling Transition exists because while preparing for life after sport is becoming a more prominent topic, there remains a lack of specific, tangible advice on how an athlete can psychologically ready themselves ahead of, during or after their transition away from sport.
The course is the brainchild of an ex-professional rugby player-turned CEO and his Clinical Psychologist sister who saw this gap in provision as an opportunity to turn their real-world lived experiences and clinical qualifications into a force for good that ensures these highly capable, resilient and self-motivated individuals have the tools they need to bring the many transferrable skills sport will have given them to the world of business and beyond.
The Transition Matrix
The ideal world scenario for any athlete is to be in the top right hand corner of the Transition Matrix when it comes to their retirement.
That is to say they have both fully planned their transition out of their sport, and have been in control of the decision making process.
The reality is the vertical axis is an uncontrollable, and what Tackling Transition does is help equip athletes with the ability to deal with this concept, while also helping them structure their thinking to achieve clarity on their planning.

Meet Geoff Griffiths
Geoff is CEO of Builtvisible – one of the most highly respected organic digital marketing agencies in the world.
His management philosophy and approach to building high performing teams is inspired directly by his experiences from a 15-year professional and semi-professional rugby career that culminated in a managed transition out of the game as he juggled playing rugby with building a career.
Tackling Transition is a passion project underpinned by Geoff’s belief in the enormous value athletes can add to organisations in any sector, and his frustrations at the lack of structured, actionable support currently integrated within sports administration.
