Featured speakers:

Tessa Berger
Head Athletic Consultant
Tessa is an Epsom Girls Grammar School graduate and attended Florida Gulf Coast University on a Division I full athletic scholarship, studying majors in business management and accounting with a concentration in entrepreneurship. She earned a perfect 4.0 grade point average, gaining prestigious Presidents List honours. Tessa has represented New Zealand on the international stage for the past decade in her chosen sport of football. Most notably, she competed in the FIFA Women's World Cup and received the honour of being named ASB Bank Young Sportsperson of the Year in 2011. An entrepreneur, Tessa established her latest business venture, The Merchandise Collective, a merchandising enterprise distributing New Zealand made clothing and apparel worldwide. She currently serves as President of Mahurangi Action Incorporated, a 40 year-old environmental organisation, and is the Chairperson and one of six trustees formally consented to serve on the Mahurangi Coastal Trail Trust. Most recently, at 21 years-old, Tessa stood as an independent candidate in the 2016 Local Body Elections. She was successfully elected to Auckland Council, serving the Rodney Ward.

Bryan Moore
Head Athletic Consultant

Bryan is a graduate of Harvard University where he was recruited to the Men’s Lacrosse Team. While at Harvard, he earned All-Conference recognition and was the #2 ranked goaltender in the entire United States. He broke a 5-year Ivy League record for the most saves in a single game (23), earned the Most Improved Player Award for Men’s Lacrosse, and won an elusive Ivy League Championship (and has the championship ring to prove it!). In high school, Bryan was a relatively unknown player with little experience. Despite his challenges, he successfully navigated the recruiting process by understanding how to break the recruiting process down into manageable tasks and end up at his best-fit university. Bryan moved to Auckland, New Zealand with one goal in mind - help more international students enjoy the student-athlete life in America.

Free parking is available. After the presentation Crimson staff will be on-hand to discuss your goals.
