Leigh Steinberg’s Agent Academy Summer 2016 Dates

The legendary Leigh Steinberg is back with his Agent Academy this summer in which he will have 4 stops: May 21st -Newport Beach, CA, June 25th- Dallas, TX, July 16th– Ann Arbor, MI, and August 13th -New York, NY are the set dates. As a participant in the first agent academy I can tell you all from experience it is a learning experience like no other because not only are you receiving tips and hearing stories from “The Real Jerry Maguire” but you are engaged in sessions that will help further your career in the industry as an aspiring agent or as a veteran in the business.
