Sketchnotes: Senior Bowl Leadership Conference 2019

Last week Scott Tindle and Bradley Flowers with the guidance of grand foo-bah Jim Nagy of the Reese's Senior Bowl kicked off the first inaugural Senior Bowl Leadership Summit at the Saenger Theater in Mobile, Alabama. In a nutshell, the SBLS is a conference that features some of the biggest NFL coaches and players, scouts, MLB front office managers, sports marketing pros, and sports media celebrities in the biz to share their insights and secrets with a business and entrepreneur audience to educate and inspire their team building skills for the office, on the field, and in the classroom. Oh, and Gary Vaynerchuk also made an appearance to promote his keynote for the 2nd Annual Senior Bowl Leadership Summit in 2020.

Here are my sketchnotes from each of the panels. Enjoy!
