Throughout the year we are supported by our management trainees


Jef Vervliet - Trainee Business Intelligence

After following in his brothers’ footsteps, Jef achieved a master’s degree in civil engineering at the University of Antwerp. Afterwards he decided to follow his sport-minded heart and started a postgraduate Sports Management at the Vrije Universiteit Brussel. At ESSMA, he found the perfect combination between civil engineering (stadiums) and sports management.


Michael Decoutere - Trainee Communication and Content

To finish a successful year studying the Postgraduate Sports Management in Brussels, Michael believes there is nothing better than doing a traineeship at ESSMA. Reasons why: 

  • A young and motivated team to work with
  • International experience
  • Combination of his two passions: digital media and sports


Laura Robberechts - Trainee Communication and Content

After completing her studies in Business Management and Digital Marketing, Laura decided to join ESSMA for another traineeship before entering the job market. At ESSMA she gets the opportunity to combine both her passion for digital marketing and sports, with a unique insight in the European sports industry. She is looking forward towards working on ESSMA’s flagship annual Summit in Dublin and other content related projects.
