From Buffalo, to Twickers, to BAFCA & More – Jetsetter and Groundbreaker: Phoebe Schecter

Britball’s busiest baller isn’t letting up this summer, as GB Lions and Birmingham Lions standout, Phoebe Schecter, has not only returned to the NFL’s Buffalo Bills for 2019 as an Offensive Coaching Assistant, but this past week was back in the UK to attend the Women In Sport Summit at Twickenham. 

The GB Lions Captain joined an impressive agenda of workshops and talks to speak to the 350+ attendees, who included a wealth of groundbreaking sportswomen from across British sport, including Olympians, professional sportswomen and key stakeholders in sports development at an international level!

Making use of her incredible experience with the Buffalo Bills, as well as all her accomplishments that earned Phoebe that opportunity, Schecter lead a workshop on ‘Leading as a Women in a Male-Dominated Sport’.

As the NFL’s first British Woman Coach, Phoebe spoke about the key qualities that make an effective leader, aiming to assist attendees in developing their own leadership skills.

The Women In Sport Summit is far from Phoebe’s only speaking gig this summer, as she’s been announced as one of the premier European speakers at this year’s BAFCA Convention, where Phoebe will lead two seminars across the weekend, not only looking back at her time with the Buffalo Bills thus far, but also sharing the NFL-level knowledge she’s gained through her time working with Tight Ends at the highest level of the sport.

Oh… and there’s a little thing called the IFAF Women’s European Championships being hosted in Leeds later this summer, too.
