10. Fielding Jamieson, Strategy Director, Global Sports Venture Studio at R/GA
As a former athlete, Fielding Jamieson always knew she wanted to work in sports. When she landed an internship with NBC Sports out of college, she found she had a knack for innovation. Since then, she has dedicated her entire career to helping big corporations leverage new technologies to grow. Her client list includes Adidas, Dick's Sporting Goods, Fox Sports, MLB, MLS, UEFA and more, who all rely on collaboration and new ideas from startups to stay a step ahead of competition. In this episode, Fielding and Amanda talk about the importance of being a doer, and what it takes to succeed in the tech industry. She gives great insight into a side of sports that we all experience regularly, but rarely know how it comes to fruition. She sheds a light on women in leadership roles around her and how she hopes to grow the number of females in tech and innovation in the years to come.
