When I started Sports Geek Nation in 2015, then #SportsBiz Slack, I didn't think it would grow into the great community it is today.
I'm lucky enough to meet many sports executives on my travels and one of the rewarding parts of Sports Geek Nation is that I am now connecting them with other sports executives around the world.
