Ideas for the Sports and Entertainment Career You Really Want

As a sports and entertainment lawyer, over the last 15+ years I’m constantly asked and speak to people about how to make it in the industry. Over the years, my advice has evolved into how best to:
• develop a deep industry understanding (rather than a superficial 'passion'): and
• build relationships (usually by listening better and flipping conversations).

These two specific points then lead on to various conversations around:

Thinking short term and long term
How to stretch your opportunity window to find a career path
actually thinking about your skills rather than the sector
Finding your competitive advantage by learning new topics that the industry is only just beginning to understand
The art of listening
Working out how to get to get people to say yes

This practical talk with give you a framework of routines and ideas to put into practice to build relationships and knowledge to help prepare you for your ideal job.
