Break Into the Sports Industry With Princeton University



Are you looking to find a job into the sports industry but not sure how to get a break?
In my mind, there is no better way to get connected with the decision makers then by attending a sports industry conference.  Luckily for us, Princeton University has created a premier event with some of the biggest players in the industry.

The 2008 Princeton Sports Symposium presented by Leverage Agency will be held on the Princeton University Campus on Friday, December 5 from 12:00pm to 6:00pm in the Friend Center.

The third annual Princeton Sports Symposium will bring together the most knowledgeable and successful professionals in the sports industry from around the country (and actually the world) to discuss various aspects and trends of the business. The event will give students and sports professionals an opportunity to learn from and network with the most accomplished individuals in the sports industry, many of whom Princeton University alumni.

This half-day event will feature a keynote conversation with Mark Shapiro ‘89, executive vice president and general manager of the Cleveland Indians and his father Ronald M. Shapiro, co-founder and chairman of the Shapiro Negotiations Institute. Mark played four years of football for Princeton University and graduated with a degree in history. He was named to the elite Forty Under 40 by the SportsBusiness Journal recognizing the top 40 sports executives under the age of 40, and he was named twice General Manager of the Year by The Sporting News.  Ron is considered one of baseball’s most respected agent-attorneys representing more Hall of Famers than any other agent, and The Sporting News named him as one of the 100 most powerful people in sports. He is also a bestselling author and civic leader.

The keynote conversation is followed by seven panel discussions. Panel topics include: The Olympic Games, Sports Marketing and Sponsorships, Sports Media and Technology, Athlete Marketing and Representation as well as Professional Sports and College Sports.

The numbers:
•    46 speakers and moderators
•    24 Chairmen, Chief Executive Officers, Managing Directors, and Presidents
•    12 SportsBusiness Journal Forty Under 40 Award Winners
•    9 Senior Vice Presidents and Executive Vice Presidents

•    Professionals from the Breeders’ Cup Limited, Canadian Football League, Cleveland Indians, Comcast SportsNet, CNBC, ESPN, IMG, Ladies Professional Golf Association, National Basketball Association, National Collegiate Athletic Association, Proskauer Rose, Sports Illustrated, USA Boxing and many other organizations

Speakers include:
•    Greg Avioli, President and Chief Executive Officer, Breeders’ Cup Ltd.
•    Bob Basche, Chairman, Millsport
•    Jordan Bazant, Founder and Principal, The Agency
•    David Birnbaum, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, TAKKLE

    Lewis, this site is so perfect for you! We all know that “networking” is a shortened term for using people for your own personal advancement. This is something you have always tried to do and its good to see you have taken it to the next level! Congrats champ!

    I have recently lost my job in the retail sector, and my true passion has always been sports. Do you think it would be of any benefit for me to attend, or is just for college age people?

    Wish I could attend this event. Unfortunately I'll be half a world away.

    Hopefully there will be more of these events sooo close to me in the future.

    This symposium sounds like a sports lovers dream. I am a three time Olympian and have never heard of an event that would give you so many advantages as an athletes in one place. I am sure it would open the mind of anyone attending to new paths in the sports industry. I would love to attend, but live in California. Enjoy it to the fullest. It will be amazing!
