“Fito Salume on founding the World Talent Group and making it a successful scout and developer of talent in the world of soccer”

What makes a professional soccer team successful in the current world soccer arena? Amongst others, having the right talent in its players is a definite requirement. Sure, talented soccer players is not the only ingredient that will make a professional soccer team successful in the competitive soccer leagues around the world but if there is no talent upon which to build the chances of success are greatly diminished. It’s clear that one of the value added processes for building successful soccer franchises is to be able to scout and develop the right talent. Serial Entrepreneur Fito Salume’s World Talent Group has been identifying and developing young players to become the professional soccer stars of the future.

Focus on providing the right talent

Fito takes pride in making a tremendous impact in the lives of so many young soccer players by opening the doors to the right opportunity. One of the things that distinguishes World Talent Group from other organizations in the business of talent scouting is that the company takes a long-term view when it comes to investing in a player. World Talent Group has made significant investments in youth systems to help develop and identify future soccer stars from a very young age. Some of the youth systems World Talent Group works with in various countries in Latin America and Europe start with boys from the age of 8 years old. The youth systems that are under direct supervision and management of World Talent Group operate under the highest standards of modern physical, intellectual, and health development standards. To achieve success, Fito makes sure the following is ticked every time talent is identified:

1. Develop a clear list of objectives and expectations as to the individual’s potential and then accordingly compliment and reinforce the areas that need to be strengthened.

2. Always put individual players first. World Talent Group focuses all its efforts on providing the individual the opportunity to develop to the highest level.

3. Make the selected candidates have a clear understanding of what it takes to be successful as a professional soccer player and help them comprehend the expectations that a team will have of their contribution to the success of the team.

4. Provide the best talent in the most efficient time. That’s Fito’s success formula, which has made World Talent Group a global success.

Ask Fito how a professional soccer team can get the best out of its players; he says, “Create the right environment and dynamic between coaches, administrators, and players such that everyone can identify a common path whereby the ultimate potential can be unleashed.”

Fito’s talent management company – World Talent Group, has offices in NY, Buenos Aires, San Salvador. They export and negotiate talent on an international level. Given his experience and proven track record in the talent management business, Fito’s advice is well worth considering.
