Are you a #SportsBiz Sales Rep who needs an opportunity?
I've been a manager who's had to let people go. It's the absolute worst feeling in the world. I'm incredibly sympathetic for my friends who have had to do this because of #COVID19.
But that doesn't mean that my heart doesn't also go out to the reps in the industry who have been impacted. Lots of talented people lost their job during this time and I want to use my platform and stage to help.
One of the worst things that can happen to a #sportsbiz rep in their development is to stop getting training and stop being on the phone. As someone who ran MLS' award-winning National Sales Center, I know the value of constant training and reinforcement...but it only works when it's coupled with real selling.
In coordination with an awesome technology partner, I've worked hard over the last few weeks to build a training platform that will start in September. This will provide for one free month of training for 25-30 reps we take into the program.
Additionally, we are in discussion with sports teams that will need “road ready” trained sales reps the second fans return to the stands and arenas. In some cases that is NOW but many more will need to replace the talent they have lost due to #COVID19 as the sports world opens up to its new normal.

Are you fortunate enough to have a job right now? Pass this along to your former reps or peers who are not as fortunate as you.
The program's aim is to start in September and provide a platform for talented, caring, out of work reps to get training, be active in sales, get evaluated, and find roles back in #sportsbiz. Simple as that.
