HEAR THE INSIDE WORD ON THE LAST DANCE DOCUMENTARY FROM THE MAN BEHIND MICHAEL JORDAN
Twenty3 Sport + Entertainment is delighted to once again collaborate with super-agent David Falk in this exclusive virtual event.
As many of you will know, Falk recently featured in the Michael Jordan documentary miniseries, The Last Dance, which was co-produced by ESPN Films and Netflix. The documentary revolves around the amazing career of the GOAT – Michael Jordan – and has been labelled as arguably the greatest sports documentary ever made. If we were to measure its ‘talkability’ around the world since its release in April 2020, then such a ‘rare air’ claim is fully justified.
While Jordan was undoubtedly a superstar on-the-court, he was also a superstar off-the-court with his various mega business deals. The man ‘behind’ all these deals was American sports agent David Falk.
While most of us continue to be home-bound as a result of COVID-19, this unique virtual event gives us the opportunity to hear from the man who revolutionised talent management globally, and subsequently facilitated a billion-dollar Air Jordan empire.
Super Agent – David Falk
Considered to be the most influential player agent the NBA has seen, Falk was listed among the “100 Most Powerful People in Sport” for twelve straight years and named as one of the Top 50 Marketers in the US by Advertising Age. Falk is best-known for representing sports icon Michael Jordan and other NBA Hall of Fame legends such as Patrick Ewing, James Worthy, Alonzo Mourning, Dikembe Mutombo, and Allen Iverson.
For the best part of four decades, Falk has negotiated the largest playing contracts in sport and conceptualised ground-breaking marketing deals for his clients.
We look forward to hearing Falk’s personal views on Michael Jordan’s documentary, The Last Dance, and adding to the endless commentary on MJ and the Chicago Bulls’ dynasty. As he did in Australia last year, Falk will also share his experiences, beliefs, and learnings on how to negotiate the best possible sports marketing deals, the subtleties and sensitivities of successfully managing high-profile athletes and maximising their commercial value, and what lies ahead for the sports business industry post-COVID-19.
Host – Eddie McGuire
