Lessons from hosting a Super Bowl

Indianapolis hosted this year's Super Bowl, and it was a huge success. I can't imagine what it would take to put on a Super Bowl. I heard Allison Melangton, President and CEO of the 2012 Super Bowl Host Committee, speak once more than a year ago, and I liked what she had to say. I also enjoyed reading this article and listening to the video clips from the IBJ.

I found three of her lessons learned inspiring:
  1. If you believe in something, be bold about it even if you have doubters.
  2. Don't let logistics get in the way of a great idea.
  3. Do what is your strength, not what others do.
