For the best part of four decades, American sports agent David Falk has negotiated sports' largest playing contracts and conceptualised ground-breaking marketing deals for his clients.
Through an intimate interview with Gerard Whateley, followed by an open Q+A session, he will reveal his secrets to success.
Considered to be one of the most influential player agents the NBA has seen, Falk was listed among the “100 Most Powerful People in Sport” for twelve straight years and named as one of the top 50 Marketers in the US by Advertising Age. David is best-known for representing sports icon Michael Jordan and other Hall of Fame legends such as Patrick Ewing, James Worthy, Alonzo Mourning, Dikembe Mutombo,and Allen Iverson.
For the first time in Australia, David will share his experiences, beliefs, learnings and personal framework on how to negotiate the best possible deals (including seeing the winds of change before they occur), the subtleties and sensitivities of successfully managing high profile athletes, how to maximise their commercial value, and what lies ahead for an industry that is unrecognisable from what it was when he started his journey.
Network with fellow like-minded attendees while hearing from David, as well as panel members Jerry Colangelo, Larry Kestelman and Rick Burton, with more to be announced. This is a must-attend event for anyone working in, or with an interest in the business of sport.
