触地谈话:与威廉·邓一起窥探NFL的战略

GVS parent William Deng spoke to Upper School students about his role as Head of Corporate Strategy at the National Football League (NFL), offering a captivating glimpse into the inner workings of the renowned sports organization. 

Deng, 马歇尔(学前班)和怀亚特(二年级)的父亲, kicked off his presentation with an exclusive peek into a video produced annually by NFL Films, taking students on a journey through the exhilarating highlights of this past football season. 当屏幕上展示比赛实况时,学生们都坐到了座位的边缘, 一路走来收获了一些明显的“哦”和“啊”.

Delving deeper, 邓分享了他对NFL精英世界的见解, explaining the rigorous process of actually securing a spot on an NFL roster as a player, a feat achieved by 0.005% of hopefuls. With a touch of humor, he quipped, "If you ever aspire to join the NFL, 走我的路可能是最简单的路线."

但邓的道路并非没有曲折, 把他的旅程比作谢丽尔·克罗的《澳门新葡京官网》." Prior to assuming his current role in 2023, Deng spent eight years in the NFL’s Media Strategy & 业务开发组,领导各种媒体合作. With a background in finance and strategy from esteemed institutions such as Goldman Sachs, Interbrand, and The Clinton Foundation, Deng holds a B.S. in Economics from The Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania and an MBA from the MIT Sloan School of Management.

Diving into riveting statistics, 邓揭示了足球是美国人最喜欢的运动, 俘获了70%人口的心, with NFL programming ranking 93rd among the top 100 programs—and continuing to grow globally. Also on the rise, is the NFL's Flag Football League, now a part of the LA Olympics in 2028.

突出了NFL每年200亿美元的媒体收入, ticket sales, events, merchandise, and sponsorships, Deng offered students a glimpse into the multitude of career opportunities within the NFL, spanning strategy, content production, legal, and beyond.

专注于他作为企业战略主管的角色, Deng simplified the term “strategy,” defining it as setting a goal, 然后制定一个计划来实现这个目标. 他的具体职责包括确定趋势, 围绕长期增长潜力设定目标, 确保每个人都能完成任务,一起工作. 从提高游戏安全性和兴奋性到吸引下一代粉丝, 邓的战略眼光涵盖了NFL运营的方方面面.

In closing, 邓在人际关系的力量方面给了我宝贵的建议, resilience, and self-discovery, 鼓励学生把失败当作通往成功的垫脚石. “Always listen, work hard, learn your strengths, and don't be afraid to fail and try again.”

As his words lingered in the air, students departed with newfound inspiration and a deeper understanding of the NFL's inner workings.
