Owner, LEGUN S.A.
Wonderful! Very informative! Speakers were excellent! Dr. Lashbrook is like a fine wine, he gets better with age!
I am a student at UCFB Wembley studying Sports Business & Sports Law. Before the event I was unsure of where my degree would take me. Listening to speakers within the sports industry and networking at this conference, I now have a better understanding of the industry and feel confident of my future career path. I will attend again next year!
The conference provided an excellent opportunity to network within the industry. Real time information was provided by speakers who are currently working in the field as scouts, agents, analysts, and the players perspective. In short, a great career conference, highly recommended.
I gained a huge amount of information. SMWW organizes an impressive list of speakers who are all willing to share their advice and answer all our questions.
