“Dietmar… my agent who turned into a friend and family member. He has guided me professionally throughout my career for many years. We experienced highs and lows together and I was always able to trust him 1000%.
My father once told him: ‘Take good care of Lira, as if she was your own daughter’. He mastered that perfectly. I owe you a lot Dietmar, my friend, and I am happy that we are still close friends now after my career, that we work together and you still stand by my side when I receive requests now.“

“I am very satisfied with my cooperation with Ness&Network for 5 years now. It has helped me achieve my various sportive and professional projects.
We have always worked together in a relationship of trust, which is crucial to me.
Ness&Network also brought me into contact with Florent Carisio, who through his company FC Sport, accompanied me in the areas of sponsoring, communications and media. In 2019 this, for example, made it possible to manage all my solicitations related to the World Cup in the best possible manner.
I thank Ness&Network and FC Sport for encouraging me in my project of Camps for young girls. Since its launch in 2017, it has seen a lot of success and we are currently preparing the 9th edition.“

“Dietmar and I have known each other for ages now. Can I describe him in a few sentences? Absolutely not. He fills a whole chapter in the story of my life, not only my story as a footballer, but above all, my story as a human being.
I believe that there is a reason for every encounter in life and it is not always the most obvious reason. Dietmar is very obviously the best and most professional manager in his field, and I am grateful for that. But more importantly, he has understood life in a way that I have looked up to since day one. He is my mentor, friend and one of the most loyal people I know.
Thank you Dietmar for being so much more than most assume you are.
You are an asset to everyone and I will always appreciate that.“

“I have always perceived the cooperation with Dietmar as positive. Both he and his team always have an open ear for me. Dietmar has my complete trust. If you don’t know what to do, he comes up with options you would never even have thought of yourself. We have now known each other a little longer than three years and a friendly relationship has developed. He is more than just an agent.”

“I have been working with Dietmar and his team for almost 7 years now and for me it is just great to see what developed since our first meeting in 2017 until today. On the one hand, I am very happy that I was able to realise my sporting dreams and that I took the first big step out of my home town together with Dietmar. On the other hand, for me, working with a management also means building a basis of trust that goes beyond sporting issues. I am very grateful for this great trust since the first day, and excited to see what else Dietmar and his team will still make possible for me in the future.”

“I still remember our first meetings very well. I noticed right away that I would be in good hands. There was trust right from the start and I quickly realised that I was dealing with someone who knew a lot about the football industry and simply knew what he was doing. My expectations were exceeded, and to this day I am incredibly happy with how everything turned out. Dietmar has not only become the best advisor for me, but also a friend you can call at any time of the day.”

Marketing - People, Brands, Possibilities
Athletes inspire crowds, are role models and heroes for whole generations of fans. This is where the base of the marketing strategies of NESS&NETWORK lies. Our primary goal is to identify the potential of an athlete early, use it to increase their publicity and to develop them as a brand. This could be as brand ambassador, advertising medium or image carrier. NESS&NETWORK knows the market and its possibilities.
References for this are, among others, Puma, Nike, Adidas, Coca-Cola, VISA, Allianz, Lego, Schwarzkopf & Henkel and many more…
Sponsoring - Athletes as advertising media
The high popularity degree of an athlete makes them attractive for regional, but also international companies. But which product fits to the athlete? NESS&NETWORK knows the benefits and dangers of this area and, in this sense, holds detailed conversations with sponsors before the athlete enters negotiations.
Legal counsel - Know-how
Many years of experience in contract law regarding transfers and negotiations with clubs, as well as sponsors and media are another strength of NESS&NETWORK. All our athletes have access to a network of judicial experts at any time.
Finances - Sustainable asset planning
Each athlete has existential questions: “How do I manage my money?“ or “What will I do after my career as an athlete?“
In this area NESS&NETWORK only trusts serious experts of the finance and tax-sector for cooperations. Over 20 years of experience speak for themselves. NESS&NETWORK develops sustainable capital and accumulation/investment plans with its athletes. The principle is easy. Build up capital and invest profitably. For this purpose, we refer our clients to high-quality professional network partners to achieve optimal counseling.
Public Relations - The athlete and the public
Often a problematic area but still essentially important for the career of an athlete. NESS&NETWORK develops the right PR-Strategy for, and together with, the athlete – individual, conceptional and sometimes even unconventional. On principle, all details are always agreed on with the athlete.
Social Media - Networks of opportunities
Which social media are there and which make sense? In the variety of new social networks, it can become difficult to keep an oversight on everything. NESS&NETWORK assesses realistic opportunities for each athlete and develops an individual social media concept with them.learn more
Sports Speaker - Sharing the values of sport
Due to their performance, athletes have a high public visibility and great role model function, regarding their fans but also corporations. This is an important success factor for events, TV appearances, interviews and similar. The combination of the right company/event with the right athlete is the base for the creation of added value for all parties involved – athlete, company and fans.
In that, we ensure that our athletes are well prepared to be able to make a good appearance and valuable contribution to any event – with confidence and security.learn more
The person always is the centre of our activities.
NESS&NETWORK is a value-oriented partner in the professional sports sector. The guiding principle for all decisions is to find the right solutions together with the athletes – after careful consultation and consideration, as quickly as possible and sometimes unconventionally. If wished for, opinions of family and closest friends are also taken into account. The person is always at the centre of all NESS&NETWORK activities.
The path to national and international success is a constant training and learning process. To achieve great goals, openness to new ideas is crucial. In addition, all external conditions have to be right and personal qualities are of utmost importance. Our several years of experience have shown that, in addition to talent and motivation, the personal well-being and inner balance of athletes is crucial for optimal results and a positive appearance.
NESS&NETWORK knows the complexities of being a professional athlete and works responsibly in the background so that athletes can devote themselves to their profession without distractions.
