WHATSAPP - A GREAT WAY TO TALK & TEXT WITH WIFI!

whatsapp-logo.jpg

Be sure to download the WhatsApp app ASAP and join our group with this link: https://chat.whatsapp.com/HrVxTKsMOEEBwTt7CIwIVM

This is the best and easiest way for us to communicate throughout the trip.

With WhatsApp, you'll get fast, simple, secure messaging for free* (*if connected to WiFi). WhatsApp enables text and voice messaging over your phone’s data connection. By forcing the information through WhatsApp servers, you are able to avoid SMS charges. Such charges can be significant in foreign countries. Using WhatApps in another country simply involves forcing your phone or similar device to use Wi-Fi instead of local cellular connections. The catch is however that you MUST be connected to WiFi.

INSTRUCTIONS:

1. Download the WhatsApp app

WhatsApp+Phone.jpg

2. Turn off your cellular connection. For most phones, go into the settings menu and turn off the cellular data setting. For more information on doing this in Windows, iOS and Android phones, see the links under “Resources.”

3. Connect your phone to a compatible Wi-Fi network. Throughout the world, Wi-Fi uses a signaling standard that is compatible with virtually all smartphones.

4. Open WhatsApp and use as you normally would. WhatsApp will use the only available connection, Wi-Fi, to complete your conversations.

TIPS:

  • When traveling abroad, it’s wise to set your status to something that informs your WhatsApp contacts that you won’t answer with the same immediacy you would when using your domestic mobile data account. The company recommends, “I am currently roaming abroad, will reply when I am on Wi-Fi.”

  • If you’re going to be in one international location for a while, you can also purchase a local smartphone and load WhatsApp on to that phone. This enables you to use cellular data without incurring data roaming charges.

  • When first connecting to Wi-Fi, open your smartphone's browser and attempt to connect to Google or another simple website. Some Wi-Fi hotspots have a captive mode that prevents your connection from completing until you agree to terms. You can agree to these terms only when redirected within a browser. If you have not agreed to these terms, WhatsApp will not work.

For complete information on WhatsApp visit their website: https://www.whatsapp.com

WE ASKED ANTHONY THE SAME QUESTIONS AS YOU!

What made you want to get into the sports industry?

I have had a lifelong love of sports. My love started at an early age playing little league baseball and cheering on my favorite sports teams as a kid. I was also a three-sport athlete in junior high and high school and I knew that working in and around sports would be a dream career to pursue. I did not find out about the world of sport business or sport management until I was in my mid-twenties. Once I learned I could pursue a career in the sport industry I focused all of my efforts into making my childhood dream a reality. 

What is your favorite sport? Favorite sports teams?

My favorite sport to play is baseball. I could play catch for hours and take BP or play home-run derby from sun up to sun down. My favorite sports to watch are American football and Olympic style wrestling. My favorite sports teams are the Chicago White Sox, Chicago Bears, Indianapolis Colts, Florida Gators, Ball State Cardinals, and Team USA Wrestling.

What job would you like to have in 5 years?

In 5 years, I would like to be a Director or Vice President of Marketing for a professional sports team, university athletics department, or other sport organization. 

What is your dream job? What’s your next job?

My dream job would be a C-level executive for a professional sports organization or a Division I athletics director. I really enjoy marketing and business so I envision myself as a CMO or team/company President one day. My next job is wherever allows me to continue to grow and use my unique skillset to achieve a high level of success for the organization. 

What is a unique trait that you bring to our team?

I believe a unique trait that I bring to the team is that I have a wide variety of life and professional experiences. I am a Marine Corps veteran and I served four years on active duty, including a combat tour in Afghanistan in 2010.

What is your biggest sport business accomplishment so far?

Being selected by Under Armour to participate in their elite internship program in 2015. I was one of 100 students selected from more than 8,000 applicants to join their company at the World Headquarters in Baltimore for their summer internship program. This was one of the best experiences of my life and I am extremely proud to have worked for such an amazing company with an incredible culture. This experience was truly life changing.

What do you hope to gain through the International Sport Business Program?

I hope to gain more knowledge on what it takes to put on such a large scale event and learn new tools to add to my sports events toolkit. I believe that no matter how many events you have planned, coordinated and executed you can always learn something new. I am also excited to visit Scotland and learn more about their country and culture. I would like to learn about their country’s sport consumption and participation habits and see how they are alike and different compared to the United States. I am also looking forward to meeting all of the trip attendees.

MEGAN DEFEO

What made you want to get into the sports industry?

Ever since I was a kid I have always had an attachment to sports and knew I wanted to get into that industry some day. I moved to Chicago when I was 5 and my dad and I went to Cubs games all summer and those experiences were what made us feel at home. Sports teams are more than just the game they’re the community and the fans and when you’re new somewhere sports is the best way to learn about that community. That is why I want to make people have those same experiences I had as a kid and for all the new people coming to games I want them to feel that sense of community and family. 

What is your favorite sport? Favorite sports teams?

My favorite sports are football and baseball and my favorite teams are the Chicago Cubs and Minnesota Vikings.

What is your dream job? What’s your next job?

Same as above my dream job is to work for an NFL or MLB team and start my own Women’s Relations Department. It has been a dream of mine to get women more involved in sports and I believe that starting a department like this will bring major strides to the athletic community. 

What is a unique trait that you bring to our team?

I have gotten to work for many different professional and collegiate sporting events that range from collegiate tennis matches to Major League Baseball games. I know how different sporting events work and I think that will be something helpful I can bring to the team.

What is your biggest sport business accomplishment so far?

My biggest sport accomplishment has been being a part of a professional soccer team from the beginning. I got to be part of an inaugural year for a United Soccer League (USL) soccer team and I don’t think that many people can say that they were there since the beginning. 

What do you hope to gain through the International Sport Business Program?

I hope to gain real life skills and experiences from people that have been successful in the sport industry. I think the experience of learning more about international sports will help all of us in the program be successful for years to come because it’s an insight that not many can say that they have. 

Favorite city or country you have visited?

My favorite place I have visited so far is Bruges, Belgium. 

What’s a hobby, a fun fact about you, or hidden talent you may have?

My favorite hobby is traveling and that is what makes this experience so amazing is that I get to combine my two favorite things - travel and working in sports.

JULIA MARTINEZ

What made you want to get into the sports industry?

Sports were a huge part of my family and continue to be a central part of who we are. I grew up playing volleyball as well as supporting my brother in baseball and football. I enjoyed the community created by sports no matter if it was for myself or my brother and so I’ve always wanted to somehow be involved professionally. Throughout college, I found my passion within the sporting events management industry during my internship with the Indianapolis Motor Speedway. This has led me to numerous volunteer opportunities with large companies like ESPN. 

What is your favorite sport? Favorite sports teams?

My favorite sport is football. I used to play with my brother and his friends but now I really enjoy watching the NFL. I follow the New Orleans Saints (WHO DAT!?).

What job would you like to have in 5 years?

Ideally, I will work within event operations for the Saints.  

What is your dream job? What’s your next job?

My dream job would be to plan and execute the Super Bowl. Since I have a passion for American football, I have been interning at USA Football in downtown Indianapolis but now I am in search of a full-time position with an NFL football team.

What is a unique trait that you bring to our team?

After my experiences with the Indianapolis Motor Speedway, I do understand the operational side of events from a different perspective than most others my age. The facility hosts events with 350,000+ people and, therefore, the crowd management plan was a huge part of what we led. I’m constantly trying to think ahead in order to see how we can avoid any major safety issues. I’m excited to see how I can transfer these skills in Glasgow. 

What is your biggest sport business accomplishment so far?

My biggest sport business accomplishment so far would probably be the University of Michigan sporting event bid contest I competed in with three other students at my school. The purpose of the contest was to create our own business plan/presentation to explain how we would organize our own version of the Olympic games. This required us to choose a location, how we would accommodate for the sports we chose, and explain why we chose the locations listed. We also detailed plans for ticketing, marketing, public transportation, etc. Once submitted, we learned that we earned a spot in the top five projects.

What do you hope to gain through the International Sport Business Program?

I hope I can further my knowledge of sporting event operations. Additionally, I see this as an opportunity to step out of my comfort zone and challenge myself in order to grow personally and professionally. 

Favorite city or country you have visited?

I love Nashville, TN.

What’s a hobby, a fun fact about you, or hidden talent you may have?

I have ziplined through the Rocky Mountains in Colorado. 

What college do/did you attend? What was your Major? What city do you reside in currently?

I attended Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis and graduated with a Bachelor’s in Tourism, Convention, and Event Management. I also achieved a certificate from the Indiana University Kelley School of Business. Since graduation, I have remained in my hometown of Indianapolis, IN. 


ALEX KRASNOW

I grew up an athlete and have always been passionate about sports and competition.  I see working within the sports industry as an opportunity to love what I’m doing career wise everyday.

What is your favorite sport? Favorite sports teams?

My favorite sport is basketball and my favorite teams are the Cleveland Cavaliers, Browns, and Indians.

What job would you like to have in 5 years?

Ideally, 5 years from now I will have an operations or scouting job in an NBA front office.

What is your dream job? What’s your next job?

My dream job is to become an NBA General Manager.  Hopefully my next job following graduation would be an entry level position in an NBA or G-League front office.

I believe more than anything I bring passion and a strong work ethic.  Whenever I have a task at hand I become fully divulged in it and do whatever necessary to complete that task at a high level.

What is your biggest sport business accomplishment so far?

Working as an analyst for Maccabi Tel Aviv basketball in Israel.

What do you hope to gain through the International Sport Business Program?

Rachel Pierce

What made you want to get into the sports industry?

My life has practically been all-consumed by competitive sports since I can remember running around a track on my tiny five-year-old legs. My grandma always recites the story that my grandpa couldn’t find me in the crowd of child racers, and she points me out to him way out in front. My main sports however, are volleyball and soccer. 

After I graduated with a BA in anthropology, I finally was forced to discover that I may have a knack for this sport management thing, so I walked into Hinkle Fieldhouse at Butler University (my alma mater) and asked for an internship. I started out just running the scoreboard at soccer games, but that quickly turned into running front-of-house at sold-out Butler men’s basketball games with a walkie-talkie in my left ear and an events manual in my back pocket. After that I honestly haven’t looked for any open positions that aren’t sport management-related. 

volleyball.jpg

What is your favorite sport? Favorite sports teams?

Volleyball is number one; soccer number two. Although I enjoy watching soccer more. 

Favorite sports teams? Obviously anything Butler Bulldogs (even though they didn’t do too well this year). And I’ve always been a huge fan of the U.S. Women’s National Soccer Team. I still wear a Mia Hamm jersey I got when I was a kid - chocolate stains and all. 

What job would you like to have in 5 years?

From my experience in DI and DII collegiate and U.S. Paralympics events and operations, I can say that in 5 years I still want to be in events and operations. My career so far has been changing year to year, but in 5 years I strive to be settled into a sport organization with a more long-term position. I want to be somewhere where I can move up with hard work and really make an impact on the community.

What is your dream job? What’s your next job?

Dream job?: Director of Ops at a well-established DI collegiate athletics program - that go-to person that makes the facilities and events run smoothly. 

Next job?: Possibly something facilities or event ops with a professional team. Nothing decided as of now. 

What is a unique trait that you bring to our team?

I’m very competitive. Of course I try to have fun and be positive within teams and in handling projects, and I believe I’m successful at that. But at the end of the day it comes down to the actual achievement, how well we did, and how we can do better next time. 

What is your biggest sport business accomplishment so far?

butler.jpg

My biggest accomplishment so far is managing front-of-house at sold-out Butler men’s basketball games in the 9,000+ seated Hinkle Fieldhouse - including 2 patron gates and 1 student gate (where we had to add wristbands because we were selling alcohol in Hinkle for the first time), leading and directing ~20 volunteer ticket-takers, ~20 security guards, and 5-8 student workers as part of our brand new customer service team that I helped create. Definitely an accomplishment. 

My next big accomplishment will be right after the Glasgow trip when I’ll fly straight to Texas to manage an international friendly series for the U.S. Men’s Wheelchair Basketball team as they host Spain and Japan. The event will also include the National Wheelchair Basketball Association’s BOD meeting, as well as a youth 3v3 event and coaches, officials, and classifiers clinics. Very excited for that!

What do you hope to gain through the International Sport Business Program?

I’m looking forward to hosting a large sporting event with practically strangers in a foreign country. I think it will be an awesome opportunity to learn a lot about my personal work and communication style, and increase problem solving skills. I’m most excited to meet everyone though! I can only imagine that this group will be a bunch of young professionals with a lot of similar aspirations to mine. And meeting some well-established sport management professionals at networking events adds onto that.

Favorite city or country you have visited?

Back in undergrad, I studied abroad for a month in Siena, Italy and quickly fell in love with the tiny medieval Italian town culture. They have their own unique sport event twice a year called the Palio, which is a 30-second horse race that would take any outsider a lifetime to understand the ins and outs of. 

What’s a hobby, a fun fact about you, or hidden talent you may have?

A fun fact is that I have two pups, Winston and Tuna (short for Petunia) who I will miss very much while I am gone. 

What college do/did you attend? What was your Major? What city do you reside in currently?

I attended Butler University in Indianapolis, IN to earn my BA in anthropology. Studying anthropology also gave me the chance to take a wide range of other classes including biology, French, organizational communication and leadership studies, gender, women, and sexuality studies, non-profit management, marketing, and psychology. 

Currently, I live in “Olympic City USA,” Colorado Springs, Colorado where I am working toward my MBA with an emphasis in operations at University of Colorado Colorado Springs.

brendan sayre

What made you want to get into the sports industry?

Going into college I really had no idea what I wanted to do for a future career, like most other students. Of course, I had some ideas, which ranged from psychologist to a financial advisor. However, in the summer of 2018 I had the opportunity to intern with one of my favorite teams in the world, Detroit City FC. That internship really set my sights on working in the sports industry. Being able to plan, set-up, and execute a successful game really had a strong impact on me. And the most influential factor I took away from that internship and is the main reason I want to work in the sports industry, is seeing the fans reactions to all the hard work that went into game days. 

What is your favorite sport? Favorite sports teams?

Growing up I loved almost every sport, that list included sports like baseball, football, basketball, hockey, and so on. However, I have to say in the last five years my favorite sport has most certainly become soccer. Right now, I work for the Columbus Crew so the logical thing to say is that they are my favorite team, however, the team that really is my favorite has to be Detroit City FC. Detroit City really has been my passion since their founding in 2012, and ever since then I haven’t supported any other team like I have them. 

What job would you like to have in 5 years?

In the next five years I would love to be able to be working with a team as a top operations manager. Being in charge of the overall operations of a team, or in charge of some factor in the operation of a team. 

What is your dream job? What’s your next job?

My dream job would have to be the owner of a small grass roots soccer team. I think for many soccer fans their dream job would be owning a top professional team, like Manchester United, however, for me being able to start and run a small grass roots team is where my heart lies. 

What is a unique trait that you bring to our team?

If I had to highlight anything about myself it would have to be my diverse background in term of event management and marketing. Having internships in sales and event production, along with my positions in my college’s student event board, I believe, gives me a strong sense of what it takes to plan, market, and run a successful event. 

What is your biggest sport business accomplishment so far?

Currently working for the Columbus Crew SC from the MLS is my biggest sport business accomplishment. Even though I really want to work in the lower divisions of American soccer, the ability to understand what it takes to run a top professional club, like the Columbus Crew, is priceless. So, I would have to say being hired to work with the Crew has been my biggest accomplishment. 

What do you hope to gain through the International Sport Business Program?

The main goal I have for this program is to gain a better understanding of what goes into running an international event. Additionally, being able to see how other people from a different country plan and execute an event is another goal I have. 

Favorite city or country you have visited?

Of the different countries and cities I have had the opportunity to travel to, my favorite so far has been New Zealand. 

What’s a hobby, a fun fact about you, or hidden talent you may have?

Growing up I raced downhill skiing for almost six years, which included four years training and racing out in Colorado on multiple Olympic race courses. 

What college do/did you attend? What was your Major? What city do you reside in currently?

I attended Albion College in Albion, Michigan with a double major in Economics/Management and Communication Studies. Right now I am living in Bloomfield Hills, Michigan and Columbus, Ohio.
