Insider Media recently hosted a ‘Marching on Together’ webinar featuring a range of speakers, including Ascensor director Andy Firth.
The event discussed the impact of Leeds United’s promotion to the Premier League on the city's economy.
Speakers contributed their views on the economic and social benefits the Premier League can bring, not just for the club and the area surrounding Elland Road, but the city of Leeds and the wider West Yorkshire region.
Much of Manchester’s success in recent years has been credited to its football clubs’ fortunes and now across the Pennines, Leeds is firmly on the map again!
The panel featured a range of professionals who have links to the club, the sports industry and Leeds business life.
The speakers included:
Founder of global real estate organisation, Scarborough Group International and former owner of fellow Yorkshire club, Sheffield United.
Chief Officer of Economic Development at Leeds City Council.
Director of Leeds-based digital agency, Ascensor.
Head of Regions at international law firm, CMS.
General Manager at ibis Styles Leeds City Centre Arena.
Head of Commercial at Leeds United football club.
