Bill Rasmussen to Headline RISMedia’s 23rd Annual Power Broker Reception & Dinner
ESPN Founder Bill Rasmussen will address attendees of RISMedia’s 23rd Annual Power Broker Reception & Dinner, held in Boston on November 2 during the REALTORS® Conference & Expo.
Through adversity and an entrepreneurial mindset, Rasmussen created what is now “The Worldwide Leader in Sports.” His idea was simple—and, at the time, unheard of: a 24-hour network. Backed by one investor and facing unemployment, he incorporated the network in 1978, and launched on Sept. 7, 1979.
Since then, ESPN has become as popular as it is ubiquitous. Rasmussen, now an author and speaker, was named one of the “40 for the Ages” by Sports Illustrated, denoting those who have contributed considerably to sports, as well as to The Sports 100.
“This is a guy whose idea gave birth to, arguably, the most successful media story of our time,” according to Jim Miller, co-author of “Those Guys Have All the Fun: Inside the World of ESPN.”
RISMedia’s Power Broker Reception & Dinner is an exclusive event honoring the Top 500 brokers in RISMedia’s 2018 Power Broker Report & Survey, published in April. The event, held in Boston at The Westin Copley Place, includes a cocktail reception followed by a dinner and awards ceremony. The event is presented by Platinum Sponsors Buffini & Company, Homes.com, Quicken Loans and RE/MAX.
Earlier on November 2, RISMedia will host the Power Broker Forum, “Compete—and Win—in a Changing Real Estate World,” from 1:30-2:30 p.m. at the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center. Against brand-new business models and competition, a group of leading Power Brokers will discuss how to attract and keep talent, drive efficiency and exceed expectations. The Power Broker Forum is open to all attendees of the REALTORS® Conference & Expo.
