Description

The panelists at the Sloan Sports Analytics Conference come from backgrounds as different as the sports that they are advancing every day. Some stepped into the job straight from the locker room, some from the board room, still others from the classroom. But what do they all have in common? First, they all brought to the game a different way of thinking that provided specific value. And, just as important, they all were able to get that talent noticed by an employer, which turned an idea into an execution and turned an interest into a career in sports. The 2014 career panel, presented by KORE Software, will provide a lively discussion not only about what skills will be vital to the next generation of sports business and analytics talent, but also how to make sure your ideas are heard and your unique value identified.
