We have been refining the #SportsBizZoom calls format from general discussion to a facilitated discussion lead by Sean Callanan. This is not a webinar, this is a conversation with your peers get ready to get involved with questions and solutions.

Here is the format #SportsBizZoom calls has evolved to:

  • Welcome & Intros - welcome newcomers to the call
  • Networking Breakout - meetup in smaller breakout rooms
  • Group Discussion - tackle questions and issues in ticketing & membership
  • Breakout Challenge - discuss a challenge in breakout room
  • Challenge Discussion - share insights from your breakout room
  • Wrap up & recommended reads - share books & podcasts you are reading <-- THIS Bring a book to share!

Join the open and honest conversations on #SportsBizZoom calls much like those that happen at networking events that we all miss so much.
