TORONTO – Sea Dogs president Trevor Georgie was a panelist at the 2016 Sports Industry Conference at the University of Toronto on Friday.
The event, hosted by UofT’s Sports and Business Association, featured a day full of panels and key note speakers from around the sports world. Georgie was on the day’s first panel on mentorship and development with the MLS’ Rachel Bonnetta, Tyler Currie of the NHLPA and Vijay Setlur from York University.
Wearing a Sea Dogs lapel pin, Georgie spoke about how his previous internships and work experience led to his new role with the Sea Dogs. He also spoke about the importance of having mentors, noting the impact Richard Peddie has had on him.
Georgie, only 28, was asked a number of questions from the students in attendance – especially after he mentioned that the Sea Dogs were open to bringing in interns to work with the team.
Sea Dogs CEO and majority owner Scott McCain was also in attendance to see Georgie speak.
