David Feherty

How do you describe the offbeat antics of David Feherty? The New York Times called him “a cross between Oprah Winfrey and Johnny Carson.” With a sharp wit and irreverent style, the professional golfer turned golf analyst, talk show host, and sports broadcaster has made a name for himself as one of the most hilarious, irrepressible personalities in golf. Golf Digest said, “Uncensored and unhinged, and worth the price of admission. It really was stupendous.” 

VIP tickets include:

  • A 30-minute preshow reception with Feherty
  • A guaranteed seat within the first 10 rows in the auditorium
  • A signed copy of Feherty’s newest book
  • A meet-and-greet photo taken with Feherty

The Future of Music: From Disruption to Design  

"Diving into the Design Think Tank:" Disruption and Innovation—On Purpose

In ever changing and increasingly complex settings, innovation and collaboration skills are critical to business management success.  This year's Music Business Management event will envision 21st century models for assessing and addressing the dynamics of disruption through the use of Design Thinking. Participating students will be challenged in this 7 hour immersion and accelerated design/build session to create businesses and technologies around these trends and disruptions.  Student teams will endeavor to identify unmet consumer and market needs and then in a highly competitive and time bound format, attempt to resolve these needs with the development of new business and technology models within the design/build process.  

Please sign up through the ticket link below, as attendance is limited.
