I would like to meet you at NSF 2019 in Vegas

Congrats Sean on the purchase of the E-Sports franchise. I’m Kevin and I really enjoyed your first podcast of 2019 with Ron Seaver. At first I thought you cut him off a little to early, but as the podcast went on you two started to get a good rhythm going.

Last year was my first year at the forum and absolutely loved it. I was a member of the NSF Business Development Sports & Entertainment group and my goal was to meet as many people as possible to eventually build some solid relationships for a future career move. I hope to challenge you on being a late-night networker and still getting up early for the morning session, but we’ll see, lol.

Seriously, I would really like to meet up with you at the Forum. I will get in on Friday evening and be there through Wednesday. After listening to many of your podcasts in 2018, your knowledge of the industry is insightful and I have some thoughts to run by you about the industry.

I apologize for the long review, but keep up the great work and I hope you agree to meeting up and share an adult beverage with me.

Take Care,

Kevin Wilson
(703) 509-6221 Cell

P.S. I definitely plan to attend the Digital to Dollars breakout session you’ll be leading.
