On Thursday 19th September attendees of the Business Club Lunch in association with MyPeople were treated to an afternoon of brilliant dining, networking and a talk from England cricketing legend Matthew Hoggard MBE.
The event hosted delegates from various industries, such as financial services, law, education and media, as well as representatives from Crystal Palace, including CEO Phil Alexander, and official club partner MyPeople. Arriving at 11.30, guests had the opportunity to mingle with other delegates before taking their place at 12.30 for lunch.
Having enjoyed an exceptional lunch prepared by Michelin Star experienced Executive Chef Julien Maisonneuve, and a selection of Palace wines, guest speaker Matthew Hoggard MBE took to the stage to deliver a speech on how team culture played a pivotal role in helping England reach number one in the world. The cricketer also fielded questions from the audience, providing amusing tales from the England dressing room.
Following the speech, guests were invited to take part in a raffle and auction with incredible prizes up for grabs including signed memorabilia and places in Premium Lounges at an upcoming Crystal Palace fixture.
Speaking about the event, Crystal Palace events manager Holly Britton said "it was fantastic to see so many of our partners as well as many new faces having the chance to meet and add value to their business by developing new connections. Matthew was a fantastic speaker and I'm sure our guests would have taken a lot from his talk about the importance and implementation of team culture. I can't wait for our next event before the end of 2019."
The event also showcased the capabilities of headline sponsor MyPeople, Crystal Palace's official culture and analytics partner. To learn more about MyPeople, click here
