Board of Advisors

Thank you to those of you who joined us yesterday for a Board of Advisors live virtual conversation with Mark Cuban, Dallas Mavericks owner and co-host of ABC’s Shark Tank, presented by AT&T and platinum sponsor, the Jim Ross Law Group. Cynthia Izaguirre, anchor at WFAA, spoke with Mark about being on President Trump’s Great American Economic Revival Industry Groups, his thoughts on the Paycheck Protection Program, the Mavericks corporate response to the virus, and whether a presidential run may be in his futureRead the full recap or watch the video clip below.

Key takeaways included:
      • “Who can we trust with our lives?” It’s the guiding question that informs much of how Cuban is approaching the pandemic, including his secret shopper initiative that he launched to gauge how Dallas Region businesses were responding to the phased reopening
      • Innovation is critical and Cuban noted how the pandemic has accelerated the pace with which digital commerce is overtaking retail commerce. The NBA faces a particular challenge in figuring out how to safely get fans back to games.
      • Cuban is hopeful the NBA will be back in the coming months. With safety as the guiding principle, you’ll see less high-fives, a natural adjustment from players, and a new way for fans to consume the entertainment.
