Harrison studied BSc (Hons) Sports Coaching at Hartpury and now owns a Sports Coach Recruitment company called Coach Connect.
Harrison's Hartpury Experience
"I thoroughly enjoyed my time at Hartpury it was great to be around people who love sport as much as me. The campus facilities are amazing. I also particularly appreciated the fact that Hartpury is small compared to other Universities as it meant I could build close relationships to lecturers and peers. I have also been so amazed with the support I have continued to receive from Hartpury even though I graduated 3 years ago.
Hartpury prepared me for life by teaching me skills that could be applied in so many different situations. The Sports Coaching course taught me a lot about communication and how to present an idea. The whole University experience really set me up for a balanced work and social life."
Developing Industry Connections
"I had the idea of Coach Connect whilst in my 2nd year at Hartpury. The support I received from Hartpury is one of the main reasons the company is up and running today. I had so much support from Simon Spooner and all the ICE team, special thanks to Lucy Scannell and Vicki Crossland. I will always be grateful for the help and funding I received from Hartpury. I love that I can work in the sports industry and help clubs and businesses grow allowing more young and old people get physically active."
