This week on the Building Better People Podcast, Charlie is talking to Amanda, who is the Assistant Event Director for the BCS Classic. Amanda takes care of all of the day-of (and now, multiple day-of) logistics for the entire event, which means she stays busy pretty much year round! Prior to serving at the Classic, she did a lot of event planning as a military spouse, which is where she developed her event planning and logistics skills.
Amanda has been serving in this role since 2019, when Charlie had the idea to grow the competition exponentially from years past. When she first signed on to help, she had ZERO idea who Rich Froning was—it was only after she heard how excited the team was that she decided to go look him up since one of her day-of roles was to make sure he had everything he needed.
Listen in for some more history of the BCS Classic and to get an inside look into what goes into planning an event like this.
