  • How and why he decided to pursue a career in the sports industry.
  • Why sports teams value a willingness to learn sales as one of the highest and best qualities to have in their organizations
  • What a job in sports ticket sales involves, and what teams are looking for when they interview for sales positions
  • How to test yourself to see if sales is for you
  • Where to get more information on careers in sports sales.
  • You will also be able to ask your own burning questions throughout the LIVE Q&A via chat or video.
