HDSHC Instructor and Alum Featured at Super Bowl 47 Event

Jill Schiefelbein, Hugh Downs School instructor and alum, participated in the 13th Annual NFL Players Networking Event on February 2, 2013 in New Orleans, LA. This NFL sanctioned Super Bowl 47 event is designed to help both active and former NFL players in their transition from players to post-football-careers.

Jill, owner of Impromptu Guru, was interviewed during a live broadcast titled “Handle Your Business” alongside featured guest host and former Detroit Lions player, Lamar Campbell. She was also interviewed on a television broadcast through VoiceAmericaTV. In both appearances Jill discussed the importance and role of communication during and after a player's football career. Listen to the broadcast.

“I’m thrilled to be an official sponsor of the broadcast and to take part in this event,” says Jill Schiefelbein, founder of Impromptu Guru and former athlete. “Understanding the mindset and the needs of an athlete in transition is important, as taking the first steps off of the playing field isn’t an easy feat. During the broadcast interview I hope to convey how investing time in practicing and learning communication and presentation skills can help an athlete at all stages of his/her career.”
