The Event School London is delighted to announce the newest addition to our faculty, Terrence Teixeira, who joins us as an Associate Lecturer in Sports Event Management. Terrence's appointment marks a significant enhancement to our teaching team, promising to bring expertise and insights directly from the global sports event stage to our classrooms.
A Global Expertise in Major Sports Events
Terrence Teixeira is a seasoned major events consultant with a rich tapestry of experiences spanning four continents. His work portfolio is impressive, featuring roles in the Olympics, Paralympics, Commonwealth Games, Pan Am/Parapan Am Games, Invictus Games, and the Cycling World Championships.
He has also held significant positions with prestigious organizations like the Canadian Olympic Committee and the International Paralympic Committee (IPC).
Pioneering in Event Management
What sets Terrence apart is his unique blend of practical experience and academic prowess. As the Founder and Managing Director of a sports consulting firm, he specialises in areas critical to the success of any major event: programme management, operational planning, Para sport, and Event-time governance. This background equips him with the insights to offer our students a real-world perspective on managing large-scale, complex sporting events.
Leadership in Challenging Times
One of Terrence's career highlights includes his pivotal role as the IPC's Games Delivery Lead for the Beijing 2022 Paralympic Winter Games. His leadership and ability to foster key relationships, particularly during the COVID-19 pandemic and within a complex geo-political landscape, were instrumental in the event's success.
This experience underlines his capability to navigate and manage large-scale events under challenging conditions, a skill invaluable to our students.
Academic Excellence and Community Contribution
Terrence's professional journey is equally matched by his academic achievements. As a published author in Sport Management and holder of two Masters and two undergraduate degrees, including one from the International Olympic Academy, he brings a depth of theoretical knowledge to his practical insights. He has now embarked on a new academic journey—pursuing his PhD at the University of Edinburgh.
His role on the Board of Triathlon Scotland further demonstrates his commitment to the development of sports, shaping strategic directions and fostering growth in the community.
