Thinking Football Summit 2022 presents new line-up of confirmed speakers

Tom Müller, Carlos Garcia Urbano, João Brito and Neil Beecroft will attend the The Grand Professional Football Fair

With less than two months to go before the start of Thinking Football Summit 2022, the event which will take place at the Super Bock Arena - Pavilhão Rosa Mota from the 18th to the 20th of November, continues to add talent and knowledge to its speaker roster, with four new big names joining the last major event of the sporting calendar before the World Cup in Qatar.

Oracle will be present at the event, with the multinational being represented by the Portuguese João Brito, the company's Cloud Solutions Architect.

With broad experience in the areas of Analytics, Machine Learning and Data Management, he has the responsibility of working with major clients in Portugal, to support them in their technological decisions through the framing and adaptation of the best Oracle solutions to their business requirements.

Directly from Spain, we have Carlos Garcia Urbano, Head of Innovation at BeSoccer Pro, one of the most advanced and complete scouting tools in the industry, aimed at football analysis and player research, on a worldwide scale.

With a degree in Journalism at the University of Seville and a Master's Degree in Sports Analytics at UCAM (Universidad Católica San Antonio de Murcia), he started his career in the journalistic field, collaborating with Marca, El Cofidencial and the BBC as an analyst specialized in Spanish football. At Besoccer Pro, he was also a Data Analyst.

Another new confirmation is Tom Müller, Vice President of global partnerships at OneFootball, a platform with more than 100 million users. Tom is considered the initiator and driving force behind OneFootball’s successful partnership programme.
