On the fence about attending? Here's one example of why you should.

Sivonnia,

You are one class act. From start to finish, how you have prepared your programming, content, and foster relationships is a true testimony to you as a person. I appreciate all of your follow up and hard work that you have done to prepare for the NILCOMBINE as well as your business acumen from the content, website development, portals, etc.

I am learning so much from you - so I humbly thank you!

~ Kimberly Brady

ABOUT THE NILCOMBINE

WHAT IS THE NILCOMBINE?
2022_NIL-Combine_Speakers.png

NILCOMBINE™ is the premier event for Name, Image, & Likeness. We bring studnet-athletes, parents, coaches, and other athlete advocates together to help break down barriers to NIL. Here, we also bring real experts to the table to provide real information & support so you can experience real results.

Heard the saying: "It's not what you know, it's Who you know"? At the NILCOMBINE™, we know how challenging it can be for parents and coaches to navigate this terrain - that's why we put in extra effort to craft our program with you specifically in mind by putting people in the room who can help you move the needle in your favor.

TESTIMONIALS

DYREEN CABAHUG
INTERNATIONAL STUDENT

 

"The host and creator of Athletes Making Moves & NILCOMBINE, Sivonnia DeBarros have done an incredible job and provided an enriching experience.
Sivonnia is super amazing I love her engaging energy and jovial spirit."

BIGGEST TAKEWAY

"As a conduit of value, accountability and education, the commitment to nurture relationships is paramount to myself and to those around me, giving a sense of dignity to my name, image and likeness and conveying the same to the people entrusted in my care."

IRIS BAILEY
MAYOR & DEAN OF STUDENTS

"It [Athletes Making Moves event] was very awesome and I was very impressed."

SUNNITA BLOUNT
ATTORNEY

"I would say the biggest takeaway was that a lot of people don't have a team because they either don't know whom they need or are discouraged due to financial difficulties. However, if they want to succeed and protect their brand it is pertinent to invest in others to assist them. "

LYNN SPEER
STUDENT ATHLETE PARENT

"If we had not come into contact with this presentation...nine times out of ten, we would have met it, possibly on the back end on the wrong side."

DR. JAZMINE CALHOUN
STUDENT ATHLETIC DIRECTOR

My biggest takeaway is "That education is the key to understand what NIL is and also understanding the disparities that some communities will face when having to deal with NIL.."

DAVID SHIELDS
 

"My biggest takeaway was the encouragement given to know yourself and your brand before taking up a partnership that may be in conflict your personal values and priorities. Sometimes we get in such a rush to make things happen that we create unhealthy business relationships simply because we haven't clearly articulated to ourselves what is important to us. 

LAUREN KING
STUDENT ATHLETE

"Building a believable, sustainable brand means just being myself and following my morals."

RHYAN SMITH
BRILLIANCE HQ

[My biggest takeaway is that] "Your brand matters and you are responsible for cultivating it. "

ARLENA RICHARDSON
SPORTS AGENT

"My biggest takeaway was the importance of relationships. The NILCombine allowed me to identify individuals to "net weave" with and obtain information about how to connect with them.
