Grass roots sport returns with a few business pointers

Posted by Neil Cornish on Apr 12, 2021 1:27:47 PM

It is great to have grass roots football back again. For many still at school it is what they look forward to each weekend. Playing with their friends, hopefully scoring a goal and winning the match. And just like the professionals, they want to go through to the next round of the cup or climb the league and get promoted. The emotional roller coaster of a 7-4 win this weekend was evident throughout my son’s team, during a game that was played in all four of our British seasons over 90 minutes. As linesman, I was pleased to still have a luke-warm coffee in a flask, left over from the morning’s golf.

The time to reflect, digest and create responses is reduced or moved into “after hours”. But there is upside; because of a wider participation by dispersed team members, insights can be gathered quicker than in our previous “normal” environment.

A day at the races - Cheltenham Gold Cup

Posted by Neil Cornish on Mar 8, 2021 5:22:32 AM

The Cheltenham National Hunt Festival has a special place in the diary each year, for me and I know many thousands of others. It is great news that it will take place this year, although for the town the loss of 100,000 visitors during the week will be huge. For many local retailers and hospitality venues, the week has traditionally been more significant than their sales at Christmas. I remember one luxury television brand retailer telling me how they always hoped the Irish would win big. When the Irish horses won during The Festival, the shop would get lots of walk in customers asking them to ship TVs and sound systems back to Ireland.
