Saracens & Lions on #SIBC panel this Friday

17 May 2017

By: Sport Industry Group

This Friday Heath Harvey, CEO of the newly crowned European rugby champions Saracens, and Charlie McEwen, chief operating officer of British & Irish Lions will debate the latest topics at the Deltatre Sport Industry Breakfast Club.

With Saracens defending their Euopean Rugby Champions Cup crown on Saturday, and with just a few weeks to go until the British & Irish Lions take on New Zealand in their own back yard, the pair will explore the global growth of rugby, as well as the commercial opportunities this represents for brands.

Taking place at the BT Centre this Friday 19th May, both Harvey and McEwen will reflect on their experience in the industry to explore ways in which the sport can stand out in an increasingly congested field.

The duo will be interviewed on stage by sports broadcaster and journalist Jill Douglas.

The Deltatre Sport Industry Breakfast Club kicked off 2017 with Paul Barber, CEO of newly promoted Brighton & Hove Albion FC, reflecting on his time in the MLS and lessons that can learned from overseas that can help better engage with fans. Read more here.

Each event welcomes up to 200 guests from across the industry to The BT Centre, St Paul’s, for an interview with leading figures from the world of sport and business.

Last year the Deltatre Sport Industry Breakfast Club heard from the likes of The FA’s Martin Glenn and Kelly Simmons, Judy Murray, Baroness Tanni Grey-Thompson and Damian Collins MP, as well as delving into the world of eSports with an expert panel from all areas of the billion dollar market.
