1-SEA-Bill-Guertin-Live-QAOne of the many benefit of being a Sports Executives Association member is the access we provide our members to top sports business professionals who are willing to network and help aspiring sports business professionals take their sports career to the next level!

Yesterday, we were joined by Bill Guertin, CEO – Stadium Gorilla.

SEA Members Learn and Network with Sports Business Professionals

During the live Q&A, we talked with Bill about:

  • 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.

Bill Guertin Discusses What It Takes To Make It In Sports

One of the questions we ask all of our LIVE Q&A guests is to provide one piece of advice to our members that will help them land their dream job in sports.

The video below includes a short clip (3 mins) from the LIVE Q&A where Bill addresses this question.
