Club Fit For Business is a CSR initiative of Blue Pencil. Following the traditions of these events, the audience was largely handpicked to ensure a high quality attendance list. There were over 80 guests, so the event not only provided fantastic content but a great networking platform. Two of the aims of Club Fit For Business is to provide grass roots business advice to the sports business community and at the same time bringing the network together to promote, share and exchange business ideas.

Blue Pencil was delighted to support the latest in a series of Club Fit For Business and CREATIVE ZONE business breakfasts, designed to support the SME sector in the Middle East. The panelled discussion was themed “The Challenges of Starting, Growing and Exiting a Business.” The panel was led by David Moleshead (Chairman and Founder of Envestors) and featured leading entrepreneur Paul Kenny (Founder of Cobone) and Ed Brookshire (President of LLC). 

John Stamper, the Middle East Ambassador for Club Fit For Business said:-

“We were very pleased to have such an accomplished panel of speakers at our event hosted with Creative Zone. Once again, we hosted a subject which was of real relevance and focus to the attendees. Edward Brookshire and Paul Kenny brought very different experiences to the table, but a number of common themes became apparent, not least determination to succeed and a readiness to amend business strategy to reassess the changing business landscape.

The insightful questioning from the panel chairman David Moleshead and excellent contributions from our audience made for an extremely interesting and enjoyable start to a Wednesday morning (not forgetting the excellent breakfast). It was a pleasure to welcome so many new faces as well as those regular supporters of Club F4B.

Many thanks to Steve Mayne, Paula Statham and the team at our event partner, CREATIVE ZONE, who once again made this such a great success!

We look forward to welcoming everyone to the next event.”
