Twitter Chats: Great Way to Learn from Sports Industry Professionals

The intersection of sports and social media has been an ever increasing way for young career-minded individuals to interact with leading professionals in the industry.

Twitter Chats covering sports business, sports media, public relations, and other related topics have become extremely popular across the social media network.

If you don’t already have a Twitter account, now might be the time to create one if you aspire to expand your network as well as your sports knowledge. ESPN’s sports business reporter, Kristi Dosh, does a nice job of elaborating on the importance of participating in weekly Twitter Chats in her blog, SportsBizMiss.com.

A graduate from the University of Florida’s Levin College of Law, Dosh explains that a Twitter Chat is arguably the easiest way to network with sports professionals. No need to fly to a sports career conference or try to grab a five-minute talk with that C-level executive.

Whether you respond to each set of questions from the moderator or just soak in some sports knowledge for an hour, Twitter Chats are definitely a great resource for sports-minded people.

    Thanks so much for this article! #SportsPRchat is just one of many great Twitter chats that help build a community while facilitating professional development, learning and networking. #SportsPRchat was founded by Mike Schaffer a few years ago and has since been transitioned to Pam and me. Through this, we’ve met so many wonderful people – professionals, students, interns, sports fans, etc. – and are excited to continue to grow the chat. Please join us every Tuesday night at 9pmET!

    Hey Mark! Great list and agree that chats are an amazing way to network. The Professional Development Book Club (#PDBookClub) meets the last Wednesday of every month from 11 am – 4 pm Eastern. It’s an awesome group of sports biz professionals who share their insights on the selected book, but we also chat throughout the month about other books we’re reading. You don’t have to read the book to join in on the chat as we ask questions that produce examples of how you are applying the book’s practices in real life. The transcript ends up being a great summary of the book!

    If your firm is growing rapidly, highly leveraged and unable to meet
    bank covenants, or is you just have curse of growing too
    quickly (. How do these tax credits affect the average independent, and in some cases major studio production owners.
    We would venture to say that the overall cost of production varies
    greatly in Canada depending on which province is utilized, via labour and other geographical incentives.
