Monday, August 5th, 2011:Cary Kaplan, President of Cosmos Sports, went to Chicago last week in order to train several Illinois area teams. To start, Cary trained the Chicago Express of the ECHL on ticket sales, strategic planning, and overall revenue generation. The Express is the second ECHL team in the past month which Cary has provided training for. James Whitener, Assistant General Manager/VP Ticket Sales for the Chicago Express , praised Cary’s training stating:
"I have trained with Cary on 5 different occasions and can confidently say that each and every time I walked away with at least one new idea that was a game changer. Cary does a great job of keeping his information fresh and up-to-date. Cary’s training sessions are always impactful on my staff and I have always seen a change in motivation and mind set in my sales team! The Sports Industry is much like technology in that it is an ever-changing world and Cary is always at the forefront!”
On Friday, Cary took to downtown Chicago where he hosted a complimentary training session for all of the sports teams in the Chicago area. The training was considered very informative by attendees such as the Chicago Cubs, Chicago Fire, and many more. Jon Zaley, Director of Ticket Sales of the Chicago Slaughter, provided the following testimonial following training:
"I have attended Cary Kaplan's Revenue Generation seminar a couple of times now with different team members and always come away from it with something new to try, or a new twist on a tried & true idea."
