Team Brand Building Through Convergence: Let Technology Tell Your Story

Speaker:
Mark Burdett, Sr. VP & Director of Partnerships and Development, Baltimore Ravens

Few people get the opportunity to work for a national sports team, especially one that is often near the top of the league's standings. At this exclusive event, Mark Burdett, one of the lucky few, spoke candidly about what goes on behind the scenes of the Baltimore Ravens and the glamorous, as well as the not-so-glamorous, aspects of sports marketing. He shared his method of keeping his sales organization fresh and motivated even under adverse selling conditions. Burdett also talked about how technology has changed the game of football and divulge some little-known secrets about how football teams use technology to help them on and off the field.

Prior to his current position for the Ravens, Burdett was the SR VP of Broadcasting and Sales for the Washington Redskins. Before entering the football world, he made a name for himself in the broadcast industry as Station Manager and GSM at WJLA-TV, as well as VP and Director of Station Relations for the ABC network. Burdett is a high-energy, entertaining and in-demand speaker.

This second annual exclusive reception is open to marketing, business development and sales executives (director level and above).
