Announcing Featured Speaker Scott O’Neil, CEO of Harris Blitzer Sports & Entertainment

Sponsorship Mastery Summit, September 22 – 24, 2021 

June 22nd, 2021 (Seattle, WA)—Sponsorship Mastery is pleased to announce its third annual Sponsorship Mastery Summit (SMS), a three-day interactive virtual experience, from September 22-24, 2021. After a best-in-class virtual event in 2020, SMS returns to the virtual world stage from studios in New York City, Chicago and Seattle, with a live streamed experience. The summit is designed specifically for sponsorship marketers (both rights-holders and brands) who want to master the art and science of sponsorship marketing.

SMS is thrilled to announce featured speaker Scott O’Neil, Chief Executive Officer of Harris Blitzer Sports & Entertainment; an organization with the mission of building passionate, high-performing teams that inspire its people to enhance the communities where their teams live, work, play and win. O’Neil is one of the most diversely accomplished and universally revered executives in the sports and entertainment industry. O’Neil has over 20 years of experience in the NBA, NHL and NFL, and has a deserved reputation as a leader of leaders.

With the 2021 release of his inspiring book Be Where Your Feet Are: Seven Principles to Keep You Present, Grounded, and Thriving, O’Neil offers his own story of grief and healing, and shares his most valuable lessons in what keeps him grounded and able to thrive as a father, husband, coach, mentor, and leader. O’Neil also interviews some of sports and entertainment’s most renowned athletes and performers and the world’s most dynamic business leaders, conversations in which they reveal their most impactful moments of learning. Each story provides us with an opportunity to learn, and —if we choose— to change our lives, and the world, for the better. Summit attendees will have the chance to hear more about his incredible story and how they can apply these seven principles to their professional endeavors.

There is a powerful roster of industry trailblazers from iconic and well-respected organizations like T-Mobile and Amazon. Every session is designed to help sponsorship marketers fill their playbooks with new ideas, strategies and connections. The full schedule is slated to be released in the coming months.

SMS will include opportunities for attendees to participate in immersive workshops, have exclusive access to the 2021 Sponsorship Brand Research Study, learn the most relevant and essential topics to achieving sponsorship success, see real world examples of best-in-class partnerships, and make valuable connections with sponsorship marketers.

Registration for the three-day event is $495, with an early bird rate of $395 while registrations last.
