Bring Game Face to your conference with the industry’s leading sports conference presenter.

Great Presentations Start Here

One sports conference presenter can make the difference between a great conference and an average event. Sports-themed conferences are popping up all over the industry, but to stand out they have to be more than great mixers, showcases for new technology, or recruiting hideaways.

The best way to bring all successful components of a conference together is with a seasoned and experienced keynote speaker, workshop leader, or panelist. Ideally this should be someone with a wealth of industry experience, a breadth of knowledge about sports and sports markets, and a unique, relatable perspective.
