What is a Community Conversation?


Think of it as an "un-panel" (or salon... whatever works for you) . We have "conversation leaders" but there are no tiers. Everyone is part of the audience and everyone can participate. We put 6-8 leaders into the crowd and lean on them to contribute the guiding thoughts behind our conversation, but we rely on much audience participation, questions, etc. to move things along.






  1. How is digital media changing sports both now and in the future.
  2. How large an impact has digital media/technology had on the experience of the fan? How has it changed the business of sports?
  3. How does Sports drive innovation and change in media and consumer behavior?
  4. Where will the convergence of sports, media and technology lead the industry?
  5. What are the opportunities for startup companies to make an impact in Sports Media?
