As if his role as CEO of FishBait (and the unenviable number of frequent flyer miles he racks up) weren’t enough to keep him busy, Rob Temple finds a way to give back in meaningful ways.
One of those is his willingness – make that eagerness – to share the complicated world of sponsorships with future industry leaders. Plenty of early mornings and late evenings find him lecturing to students of Sports Law, Marketing, Media Management and other disciplines. In the last year alone, he’s made the complex comprehensible to classes at the Universities of South and North Carolina, Bob Jones University and others.
He's also a frequent invitee to podcasts, where he can enthuse on topics as wide ranging as IP Rights… and his beloved Tar Heels.
Rob (second from right) lectured to a Sports and Entertainment Law class at USC School of Law, with Shammond Williams – Second round pick in the NBA out of UNC-CH, Joe McCulloch, Jr – presiding Professor USC School of Law and working attorney, and David Wyatt – Adjunct Professor, Attorney and Chairman, South Carolina Football Hall of Fame, Inc.
