Leicester Tigers invite business leaders and their future stars to come together to share best practice at the hub of Leicestershire business, Welford Road, as part of our inaugural HUDDLE on Tuesday, November 3.HUDDLE promises to be a highlight in the Tigers business calendar, giving partners, clients and the business community the opportunity to rub shoulders with industry experts and Tigers legends during Leicestershire Business Fortnight.   Chris Rose, Tigers’ head of brand, said: “We’re incredibly excited about this venture because we’ve not run a networking event of this size before. We really feel Welford Road is the heart of the local business community, and HUDDLE will provide a great opportunity for a range of Leicester businesses to engage in current business debates.”   The day is aimed at senior decision-makers and will include business masterclasses, Business Scrums and keynote speeches; hard-hat tours with Tigers legends of Welford Road’s new West Stand; top-flight catering from breakfast to afternoon tea; and a health and wellness area. Delegates will also be given the opportunity to book meeting space on the day to work away from the office.   The HUDDLE team has already announced three keynote speakers for the event: Rugby World Cup winner turned TV commentator Ben Kay; former Director General of the CBI, Lord Digby Jones; and CEO of Radley, Justin Stead. The final keynote speaker is due to be announced this week.   Each keynote will speak about their experiences in industry as well as joining masterclass sessions for up to 100 people.   HUDDLE masterclasses include ‘The Power of Partnerships: How working together offers bigger opportunities’ presented by Helen Donnelan, Head of Inward Investment at Leicester City Council, former Tigers player and charity founder Matt Hampson, and Byron Dixon, owner of an award-winning antimicrobial business, Corium Solutions Ltd.   Our more intimate ‘Business Scrums’ are limited to just 20 guests and will provide the chance to discuss the implementation of ideas across the day. Scrums include ‘CRM and Big Data: How to use data to drive revenue’ with Mario Zambas, former CIO at Dubai Sports City, and Aidan Cooney, founder of Opta, the world's leading provider of sports performance data.   Tickets for the HUDDLE are available to purchase online by clicking here or phone us on 0116 319 8888 (option 2).   Alternatively, send us your details to [email protected] and we can invoice you directly.   For more information on the event go to www.leicestertigers.com/huddle.
