“Mary-Ann Dove has tremendous value to add both to professional sports people as well as those who aspire to become professional and their management teams. I have found that she possesses the unique ability to understand her clients and engage with them in the individual way that they each require. She has a wealth of working knowledge and experience with regard to communication as well as knowing how to holistically take care of the whole person. Here is a professional who not only understands the value of mental coaching and player development, but truly cares about her players and is prepared to walk the extra mile with them. That is who Mary-Ann is. She can deliver the goods and she cares. Mary-Ann is the one I would have on my team to develop professional players, both on and off the field. She can add value to sports people, as well as coaches and management. This is one woman I would go to war with, a great asset on any team!”

“Mary Ann is regarded as our one stop shop for all education and career planning advice.
Personally, Mary Ann was able to put me in touch with the appropriate people at UNISA to usher along the administration process, which is a major deterrent for sportsmen because of their limited time.
Having been in the field for many years, Mary Ann has a wealth of knowledge regarding the options for the players to pursue including streamlining the process and making more attractive to just get started.
In my opinion, the nature in which Mary Ann deals with the players is where her true value lies. Each player is dealt with uniquely and an individualized action plan is developed. More importantly, Mary Ann takes it upon herself to follow up regularly with the players to track their progress, and sometimes to add a little motivation!
I really enjoyed working with Mary Ann and look forward to our paths crossing in the future.”
