Martinez To Launch New Everton Business Club

ROBERTO Martinez is set to launch a new and exciting business club which will offer Evertonians the chance to network and do business with fellow Blues. The Everton Manager, who will be joined by the Blues’ Chief Executive Robert Elstone, will be attending the launch of the new Everton Business Club on Tuesday, November 17, at the Hilton Hotel in Liverpool, which will provide local companies and individuals the opportunity to mix football with commerce. The club will not only strengthen members’ commercial networks but also provide valuable business insights into managing a team, pioneering leadership, communication, recruitment and supporting local people – all key components for success on and off the pitch. Richard Kenyon, Everton’s Director of Marketing and Communications, said: “We are really excited to be launching the Everton Business Club.  We want to engage with the vibrant and strong business community here in Liverpool and provide a completely new networking forum, which combines two of the most important institutions in the city – football and business. “Our vision is to extend the already strong Everton community into the business world and create a network which facilitates opportunities for its members in a familiar and enjoyable environment.” Members will enjoy a range of benefits including exposure on Everton’s official website, a quarterly newsletter and the chance to attend four exclusive events featuring members of the Everton First Team squad and influential business leaders, to gain an insight into how football and business work hand-in-hand. Existing Hospitality Lounge Members at Goodison receive free membership to the club, meaning that the new network already boasts over 500 members. New members can join the Everton Business Club for a small seasonal membership fee of £99+VAT, which is donated to Everton in the Community, the Blues’ official charity.
