In this episode of Ops Nation, we’re talking to Joey Mitchell, Director of Events at the University of South Florida. After listening to this interview, you’ll get a great idea of why his Twitter handle fits perfectly — @JoeyGameDay.
In this episode Joey talks about going to school at Saginaw Valley State University in Michigan, getting his start in athletic administration at the College of Saint Rose (NCAA D2), moving to the University of Central Florida (UCF), heading west on I-4 to his current home at South Florida (USF), his typical work week, what a week looks like leading up to a home football game, where he stations himself during home football and basketball games, dealing with weather (especially lightning!), and what fires him up about coming into work every day.
Joey’s recommended apps:
- Weather Sentry – this app helps you track the weather — especially lightning!
- WhenToWork.com – online employee scheduling
Joey’s Tip of the Day:
- Face to face meetings are very important. There are many benefits, both in productivity and relationship building.
