- Work alongside one of more than 50 trained industry experts to help you achieve your aspirations.

What is the Deloitte Coach Business Champions Programme?
The Deloitte Coach Business Champions Programme is an extension of the LTA Coach Mentoring programme, and provides you with the opportunity to experience bespoke, individualised support around your business skills specifically.
This is achieved by matching you with a Deloitte Champion who will listen to your business goals and help explore how you can take action in order to meet them.
The programme is sponsored through the LTA and Deloitte’s partnership so there is no payment required from you to sign-up to, and complete, the programme.

Our mentors are specially selected and trained in formal mentoring skills and have backgrounds across a variety of specialisms, ranging from player technical and tactical development to leadership, marketing and population specific expertise (e.g. performance, female, disability).
It’s proven to work...
- 85% of tennis coaches felt more confident and competent in their role within the first 6 months of engaging with an LTA Coach Mentor (LTA Coach Mentoring pilot, 2020).
- Research with CEOs in formal mentoring programmes found that 84% become proficient in their roles faster, 69% were making better decisions and 84% said mentors had helped them avoid costly mistakes (Harvard Business Review, 2015).
"Before starting these sessions I was unsure whether I wanted to continue working in tennis but, following the past 5 months I have no doubt that I want to continue."
