Ahead of this month’s opening Luncheon Club event at Welford Road, we caught up with our guest speaker, the best-selling international author and former politician Lord Jeffrey Archer.
The Luncheon Club is an exclusive membership for businesses to join, inviting them to special lunchtime events throughout the season, with the opportunity to hear advice, meet new business contacts and enjoy Welford Road’s hospitality.
Limited spaces are still available to attend the inaugural event, where Lord Archer will talk to guests about the role businesses play in modern society, building his empire as an author and how his association with sport has helped shape his life.
Talking ahead of his visit to Welford Road, Archer said: “I always enjoy visiting rugby clubs because I’ve been a rugby supporter all my life. It started with my local club, Weston Super Mare.
“Like many rugby fans, I’ve always been aware of Leicester Tigers being one of the great sides.
“I’m very aware of how money has become dominant in rugby. Big, strong financial backing is important to a club with the reputation and success of Tigers and so building links in the business world are key.
“From my time in government, we aimed to help small businesses become big businesses and, in light of recent developments such as Brexit, we don’t want to lose an association with Europe. We are an international country and we mustn’t become an introvert country.”
Tigers Luncheon Club events are created in collaboration with club partner Mattioli Woods, with this opening event taking place on Wednesday, November 15 (12.00-2.00pm) in the Underwood Suite in the Mattioli Woods Stand.
Seasonal membership is available from £100pp + VAT and includes a two-course lunch, business networking opportunity and priority booking for other club events.
