Football favourite Kevin Keegan to speak at IoD Humber Luncheon
Former England footballer and manager and best-selling author Kevin Keegan is the guest speaker at the annual Institute of Directors’ Humber Luncheon, kicking off Humber Business Week 2019 as part of “Destination Monday”.
Kevin Keegan is one of the greatest players in English football history, famed for his style on the pitch, his relentless ambition and passion for the game. He captained England for six years until his international retirement after the 1982 World Cup.
Keegan started his playing career at Scunthorpe and went on to play for Liverpool, Hamburg, Southampton and Newcastle.
As a manager, Keegan's five-year spell in charge at Newcastle is now legendary. He led the club from the depths of the old Second Division to the brink of the Premier League title with a breathtaking vision and flamboyant style that saw his team dubbed 'The Entertainers'.
Keegan was awarded an OBE in 1982. He now combines football punditry for television with coaching and motivational speaking.
Keegan will address business leaders at the Humber Luncheon on Monday 3 June at the KCOM Stadium.
Pat Coyle, chairman of the IoD in East Yorkshire, said: “Kevin is one of the most recognisable names in English football with many accolades to his name not least winning the Ballon d'Or twice. We look forward to hearing about his experiences on and off the field, particularly in management, which no doubt will provide many parallels to those we encounter in running our own businesses.”
The Humber Luncheon starts at 12 noon. Tickets are £47 + VAT for IoD members and £54 + VAT for non members. Tables of 10 are £450 + VAT. To book, email firstname.lastname@example.org or email Pat Coyle at email@example.com
Event sponsors are KCOM, RSM and The University of Hull.
