FX of KC Luncheon: Doing What You Love and Loving What You Do

(Note: Rescheduled from 1/27/17--same speaker, same location, different date.)

A Conversation with the KC Royals Top Communicator

Mike Swanson’s been around baseball for much of his life. As a kid, his mom took him to her jobs working for the Royals and Chiefs. That early exposure to sports cultivated a passion for baseball, and his career path reflects that.

The course of Swanson’s 38-year career in sports communications has brought him full circle – back home to KC. For the last 11 years, he’s been the lead communicator for the Royals. As VP of Communications & Broadcasting, he’s guided the communications and media relations team through the ball club’s highs and lows.

It’s certainly a great time to be a Royals fan. But, from a communications standpoint, what does it take to run such a high-profile communications operation with so many stakeholders? How does one keep fans interested, engaged and excited in the offseason? Swanson will be answering these questions and more.
