Friday, May 6, 2011 Cosmos Sports is excited to be gearing up CSI10, which will begin on Monday, May 9th and run till May 20th. During the two-week program, participants will have the chance to hear from some of the best in the sports industry. This year we are excited to have guest speakers: Paul Fruitman (former Director of Ticket Sales for the Toronto Argonauts and Owner of Doing It As a Winning Group), Bill Makris (Senior Director of Ticket Sales for the Edmonton Oilers), and finally Chris Atack (Manager of Sales for the Ottawa Senators). The speakers will provide an in-depth look into the importance of ticket sales, the components of the sales cycle, and much more.
The second week of the course will include site visits with Toronto FC, Toronto Argonauts, Toronto Blue Jays, and the Toronto Raptors. Participants will have the chance to see the facilities, as well as learn the inner workings of the business. Sales calls, as well as interviews with the Hamilton Tiger Cats, will further enforce the skills learned throughout the course.
