We are excited to be rolling out a new feature on Gameops.com called The Mighty Game Ops Network. (Note: the name of our network has been updated to Gameops.com Plus)
The Network is currently up and running as we test out the features and ramp up the content.
On June 9th we host our first ‘Huddle’. These Huddles are hosted Zoom calls featuring a selected topic and special expert guest. Yesterday our guest was Rob Wicall and the topic was Skit Writing. Mascots and Game Director from across sports joined our hour long call, including mascots from the NBA, NHL, NFL, MLR, MILB and college athletics. Rob led an interactive discussion on how to build a skit from the ground up.
Our next Huddle (July 7th) is Defining and Owning your Brand.
Greg Monaco from Fearless Brands is our guest. Greg provides a thoughtful approach to understanding your own brand. The goal is to find clarity and refine your actions to make you more special. This conversation is for anyone in game operations, including game directors, mascot characters, hosts and entertainment teams. Thoughtful examples from the Tampa Lighting, NBA mascots and more to help you.
The storytelling gets easier when you understand the characters.
We had great insight and engagement from the participants as well. Younger mascots having the chance to hear from veterans as well as veterans being challenged and energized by the new performers.
Keep your eyes open for more updates to the new Nighty Game Ops Network. You can also help test it out if you are feeling frisky. It can be found here: The Mighty Game Ops Network.
