Sam Tarn started his career as a copywriter and progressed into a marketing role working with multinational brands such as BPCastrolWrigleyIntel, and Jagermeister. He then joined UEFA, the governing body of European football, and grew its community from 500,000 to 4 million followers.


One of Sam’s significant accomplishments was that he was one of the people behind creating the UEFA Equal Game global campaign that promotes football for all and binds like-minded people is football love and derives from the earlier “No To Racism” campaign.



Some useful career tips that Sam shared with students that would like to adventure themselves in the field of digital marketing included:

  1. An excellent Social media strategy is an integral part of your brand promotion; it makes things easy and less stressful. Try to be a little bit bolder than the usual conservative ways, especially being in Switzerland.
  2. Don’t be shy about using emojis in content and posts.
  3. “Learn to love the hustle.”


Have a hard skin as you will get a few knocks along the way. Be willing to develop different skill sets, which will only be possible when you jump out of your comfort zone. You have to be the sole judge of your work.


The American University in Switzerland would like to thank Sam Tarn for sharing his insights, advice, and valuable information with students and alumni.
