Sports Business Classroom is excited to announce that Beau Estes will be a featured speaker for the 2021 Draft Academy Virtual Experience!

Draft Academy was designed to give the future of basketball the chance to experience what it’s like to be in the War Room on Draft Day and during the Trade Deadline and learn the skills necessary to be an effective front office pro.

It is also a chance for you to showcase what you’ve got.

If you dream of working in basketball and want to take your basketball experience to the next level the Draft Academy: Virtual Experience is for you.

Past speakers have included NBA Commissioner Adam Silver, TNT’s David Aldridge, Houston Rockets Head Coach Mike D’Antoni, NFL Network’s Andrea Kremer, Dallas Mavericks Head Coach Rick Carlisle, the cast of NBATV’s The Starters, ESPN’s Mark Jones, Los Angeles Lakers General Manager Rob Pelinka, ESPN’s Adrian Wojnarowski, and NBA Executive VP of Basketball Operations Kiki Vandeweghe, just to name a few.
