Leigh Steinberg Sports Agent-Business Growth Academy w/Bill Walsh Las Vegas

July 14 @ 6:00 pm - July 16 @ 2:00 pm

The Leigh Steinberg Sports Agent Academy in Las Vegas on June 9-11 will be focused on creating the top sports agents of tomorrow!

Agent Leigh Steinberg has represented hundreds of professional athletes throughout his storied career, and his client list includes Kansas City Chiefs Quarterback Patrick Mahomes among his more than 50 current NFL clients. For this year’s Agent Academy, Steinberg is excited to announce that he has teamed up with Bill Walsh from Powerteam International to bring his program back to Las Vegas in 2024.

Steinberg and his team have added invaluable new content to the Academy, including public speaking skills, negotiation mastery, as well as how to empower your presence and stand out amongst the competition. Attendees will hear lectures from both Steinberg and Walsh, one of the top business coaches in the country, and will also take part in realistic exercises involving recruiting, negotiation, damage control, and how to start a charitable organization.

“Fundamentally, the concept is to try to train a new generation of agents and sports professionals that have specific skills,” stated Steinberg. “People go to law school, business school or sports management school and they learn the principles of each of those areas, but no one really concentrates on the actual practical skills that someone would need to be successful. We teach them how to negotiate, how to recruit, and how to build an agency. We’re honest about the fact that there are 1,000 certified football agents, and the economics should be challenging. They get a realistic picture of it.”

In addition to his Agent Academy, Steinberg plans to continue his sports career conferences which are scheduled for 2024. He is excited to greet everyone in person this year in Las Vegas and do his part to create the next generation of honest and skilled super agents.
