Our 2019 conference took place June 12-14. Our keynote speaker was Molly Fletcher, hailed as the “female Jerry Maguire” by CNN. She shared the unconventional techniques that helped her thrive as one of the first female sports agents in the high stakes, big ego world of professional sports and now as a successful entrepreneur.
The key to being a successful COO and CFO is your ability to tap other resources in your industry. The networking is invaluable in terms of building relationships.
