  • Host City is an incredible organization for good: a well-managed group of professionals seeking to bring the best and brightest together on multiple salient issues. As a sports professional who has also worked in the public and private areas, I appreciate their programs for putting a spotlight on unity, open free discussion, public-private sector cooperation, and the benefits of sport. It has been a great honor to be their former keynote event speaker and participant
