Yesterday saw the return of the ORT UK Business Breakfast at a stunning NW London venue.
Sports lawyer and author Daniel Geey, led a panel discussion on the theme of ‘Impact Through Football’ with former Arsenal player and manager Freddie Ljungberg, the Head of Women’s Football at top sports agency CAA Base, Georgie Hodge and The Athletic’s Football Correspondent, David Ornstein.
Our special guests shared their varied, fascinating and uplifting career journeys into the football industry and revealed how they are using their experience to help the next generation succeed.
There was also a raffle and auction, including signed football shirts was announced, with all proceeds going towards the ORT Global Network’s schools and training programmes.
ORT UK Chair, Annette Kurer said:
“We were thrilled to welcome such a fantastic panel of sporting stars to the ORT UK Business Breakfast, who between them have a wealth of experience across many different areas of the football industry. Today’s guests demonstrated how with determination, a passion can lead to a fulfilling career in one of the UK’s most influential industries. This is in perfect alignment with our ORT JUMP Mentoring Programme and new Employability Skills Programmes, which help school students to identify their strengths and explore the huge array of career possibilities open to them.”
“We’re absolutely delighted that the Breakfast has raised funds that will help us continue making an Impact Through Education, by enabling young people both in the UK and across the globe to reach their potential.”
