Kim Kyung-min, head of the Korea Handball Federation, gave the students first-hand experience of what it is like to work in various sports organizations based on his past experiences with the OK Savings Bank volleyball team and Lotte Giants baseball team, as well as his experiences in preparing for the professionalization of the Handball H League, while Jeong Sang-yong, head of Nongshim’s eSports Marketing Team, explained the differences between conventional sports and eSports, as well as information on the competencies required for each job, based on his past experience in the match operations team and PR marketing team at K League 2 FC Anyang.
Mr. Kim Tae-won, an executive at a global IT company and a long-time mentor of Mentor FC, emphasized that there are not only tailwinds in life, so it is possible to move forward by utilizing headwinds as well, and explained that it is important to incorporate the triangular sails of perspective, redefinition, narrative, and fascination into our lives. 보스토토
