Leadership Forum

Greater Manchester

More than 30 of Greater Manchester’s leading finance and business professionals recently met to discuss topical issues in the sports industry in a forum hosted by Hays Senior Finance, the recruiting expert.

The event was held at the Lancashire Country Cricket Club in Manchester and included senior finance representatives from leading North West businesses.
Guest speakers included:

  • Mick Hogan, Chief Executive of Sale Shark Rugby Club
  • Alan Switzer, Director of Deloitte Sports Business Group
  • Kevan Taylor, former Chief Executive of Stockport County Financial Controller and Finance Director of the Lawn Tennis Association.

The speakers gave a fascinating insight into their sporting worlds and topics included the unparalleled growth of the Premier Football League and the sustainability of the current market, professional rugby and salary capping, funding and opportunities for growth, British tennis and the accountability of the governing body, and the ability to develop more high class players.

The presentations were followed by a lively Q&A session covering a wide range of finance and sporting subjects.
Chris Paramore, Regional Director at Hays Senior Finance, comments:

“The evening was thoroughly enjoyable and the guest speaker’s views on the sporting world were informative. A very successful evening which was enjoyed by all.”
