Millwall Business Club hosted its first event at The Den this week.
Hosted by the BBC's Marc Webber, speakers included Linus Wessman (CEO - Huski Chocolate), Robbie Balfour (Head of Marketing – Sky Sports) and Ben Milhench (Director – Greenlight Sports & Entertainment) as a number of topics were discussed, including value of sponsorship within football, ways of measuring success, sponsorship activation, industry trends and more.
Attendees sat down for breakfast, before the guest speakers took to the floor, with open and speed networking available after. Prizes were then handed out at the conclusion of the event.
"I got to meet some great business owners, which also allowed me the opportunity to pitch my business to others which I'm currently in talks with," said Joe Gushlow of Face 2 Face Marketing. "The panel put together was fantastic, and allowed us to get a good insight into their journey within the sports industry. I'm already looking forward to the next one."
Meanwhile, Matthias Sparshot of Digigroup added: "The business club meeting was brilliant, informative and everyone left the room full of passion and excitement. The quality of the speakers made the event very informative and fun."
