Members of the Sports Executives Association were treated to a LIVE Q&A yesterday with Ben Sturner – CEO & Founder of Leverage Agency and the Manhattan Sports Business Academy.
During the 1 hour LIVE Q&A with Ben we discussed how he got involved in sports, his vast experience in sports sponsorship, how he started Leverage Agency, why he founded the MSBA and advice he’d give to others aspiring to work in sports.
Below is a short clip (5:45 mins) of the Rapid Fire Questions we asked Ben during the LIVE Q&A including:
- Is networking the most important factor in helping someone land a job in sports?
- Do you believe people need a college degree to work in sports?
- Do you have to have a passion for sports to work in sports?
- Should anyone looking to work in sports have a Linkedin and Twitter account?
- In your opinion, from a job seeker perspective, what sports business conference is the best one to attend and why?
