Welcome to Winning with Data!
This is the only online course that will teach you how to use data-driven marketing and decision-making for the unique challenges and opportunities in the business of sports.

This course will show you how to:

  • Increase revenue from tickets and merchandise sales, sponsorship, and media rights.
  • Increase engagement with your content and your promotions.
  • Increase participation in your sport, from your athletes, coaches, referees, and volunteers.

You’ll watch me discussing this and much more on video, you can download the transcripts as well as listening, and I’ll be checking your knowledge along the way with our quick quizzes. At the end of each module you’ll then complete an exercise with either me, Rachel, Andrea, or Eugene, which you’ll submit to us for checking. Some of these exercises will introduce you to market leading software, Tableau and SALESmanago.

Along the way you can schedule a one-on-one video call with any of the course tutors, use the online chat function, and join or start a discussion in the forum.

I plan to help you as much as I can as you take this course – and my team will be right at my side to provide additional support.
