Jon Burns, Class of 2004

AllSportCentral is an event management company, which began in Sioux Falls four years ago. In just four years, AllSportCentral is providing services to events all over the country. AllSportCentral provides services, such as Registration, Results, ChampionChip Timing, TimeTracker, Website Design and Hosting, Finisher Certificates, and various other promotions. AllSportCentral is capable of providing a client will all of these services or just one. AllSportCentral has worked with events as small as a community fun run and as large as the U.S. Olympic Trials.

My duties ranged from uploading results and inputting events into the calendar, to organizing the post-race awards ceremony for this year’s St. Patty’s Day Mile. I also spent a great deal of time responding to customer service e-mails, assisting customers over the phone, and making promotional calls.

I had a good experience at AllSportCentral and learned many things that I will be able to take with me into a career. I learned what it takes to organize an event and even more importantly, what it takes to organize people. I learned how to listen to people’s requests and to always help them to the extent of my capabilities. My experiences at AllSportCentral have helped prepare me for any career I wish to pursue.
