Beginning in the realm of professional sports, and as a physically underwhelming prospect, Mr. Pickard became extremely interested in cognitive performance and statistical analytics. Finding a previously undefined, and now mostly unquantified, edge in competition became his primary focus to allow him to improve his performance.
Now at Boxout Performance, Mr. Pickard leads the Esports performance team, helping developing athletes define their path to performance enhancement. Since the physical playing field has been leveled, peak performance lies in an athletes ability to harness cognitive, visual, and psychological skills in order to deliver when it matters most. Mr. Pickard’s role is to help introduce and guide athletes through this process to help them compete at their highest level.
