EVERTON Business Club members gathered for Christmas drinks to celebrate a year of successful events that have helped to raise £15,000 for Everton in the Community. The informal event was held at Liverpool’s new Neighbourhood restaurant, located on Castle Street, with former players Leon Osman, Kevin Ratcliffe and Barry Horne all in attendance to network with over 100 Business Club members. This year’s events have featured a number of special guests, including the Executive Chairman of the Premier League Richard Scudamore, Club legends David Unsworth, Joe Royle and Kevin Kilbane, avid Evertonian and WBC Cruiserweight Boxing Champion Tony Bellew, Chief Football Correspondent for The Times Henry Winter and a host of Everton’s senior management team including CEO Robert Elstone, Director of Football Steve Walsh and Head of Engagement Scott McLeod. Each event held is focused around a specific business topic with areas such as managing a team, motivation & development, social media and digital matters and the ins and outs of recruitment processes all being covered throughout 2016. Events will continue throughout 2017 and there is still the chance to join the Business Club with all member fees going straight to the Club’s official charity to help support and develop the wide range of programmes they run throughout the year. The Everton Business Club continues to offer opportunities to network with leading organisations from across the region and can provide local companies and individuals the opportunity to mix their love of football with commerce. The range of benefits that Business Club members are able to enjoy include:
- Your company name, brief description of your business and a link to your company website on Everton’s Business Club Directory.
- An invitation for you plus a guest to exclusive networking events with leading business speakers and Everton legends.
