My time working with the Bedford Agency taught me leadership qualities, independence, professionalism, and communication skills. Bryan helped me grow a network in the sports business industry, and was a great role model as both a boss, coworker and friend. He instilled in me a growth mindset for both work and everyday life. I’m grateful for the opportunity I had to intern with the Bedford Agency in 2021.”
