The event was hosted by the Atlanta Hawks for their “Hawks Mean Business Networking Series.” The Hawks Mean Business Networking Series strives to help individuals elevate their brand and/or business by introducing and encouraging an open dialogue with industry leaders.
The Nov. 30 event included a panel discussion about the impact of technology in sports. The panel included Junior Gaspard from Experience, Rick Pineda from FanDuel, Pete Scott from Turner Sports and Lev Raslin from Signal360.
Each panelist shared their story of how they got to where they are at in their careers. The discussions were very enlightening with topics including the impact of social media in sports, and how to make connections with people in the business and build relationships.
“Remember to connect with people,” Gaspard said. “Invest in those relationships.”
The panel also gave tip for college students on how to use social media properly when applying for internships or jobs.
“If you send me a request on connect on LinkedIn, write in the box who you are and why your sending the request,” Pineda said.
The Fans Favorite Fan staff thoroughly enjoyed the event, and we thank the Atlanta Hawks for allowing us to be a part of it.
