The Surge Sports Tool

The Surge Sports Tool (powered by Motto) was developed by sports coach and ex-professional sportsman Ian Kennedy, in collaboration with Dr Mariheca Otto, founder and CEO of Motto Business Consulting. The questions and constructs are based on the Internal Marketing Model and subsequently the Motto Model™ developed by Mariheca during her PHD Research.
