At Premier Live, I helped produce the world’s most exclusive Pro-Ams through their partnership with Sir Richard Branson known as the Necker Cup (tennis) and Necker Open (golf). Part of the Premier Live internship was having the opportunity to win my way to the Necker Cup via the Premier Live Pro League. Upon learning this, my excitement went through the roof. The Premier Live Pro League brought some of the best college and former ATP/WTA tour players to compete in a fun and exciting team format, played at the top clubs in Atlanta. At the end of the competition, the male and female with the most “Necker” points accumulated would win a trip to the 2016 Necker Cup as a pro.  Continue reading >>

“Working as an intern for Premier Live was a great experience for me. I was able to help them on the sales and the marketing side. They let me get real-world experience in a relaxed and casual environment, which is something that is hard to find in many businesses these days. I was able to reach out to top tier executives around the world about one of the most exclusive pro-am events, the Necker Cup. Overall, this summer internship was exactly what I needed to help me get ready for a job in the future.”
