Town First Team Manager to Address Delegates at Kirklees Business Conference

Published 10th Sep 2013 by Events

Mark Robins, first team manager of Huddersfield Town will take to the stage at this year’s Kirklees Business Conference to reveal in a question and answer session how getting the best from your people is the key to success in any venture, be it sport or business.

Lancashire-born Mark Robins won many accolades as a striker during his 20 year playing career including a European Cup Winners’ Cup, a UEFA Super Cup, an FA Cup, a League Cup and the Charity Shield.

Mark went on to become the new Huddersfield Town Manager in February 2013 and steered the Club to Championship safety. Town’s 2013 season has started with great promise and Robins is hopeful this vein will continue.

Danny Matharu, Event Director of Kirklees Business Conference (KBC) said: “Although Mark has played under arguably the greatest living football manager in Sir Alex Ferguson, this session at KBC is not about football. It is a unique opportunity to pick his brains and discover what makes for a successful team. Many say that the work of a football manager mirrors that of a business owner and it is for that reason that we approached the club to see if Mark would be interested in speaking.

“We are honoured to welcome Mark to Kirklees Business Conference and see this as a real coup to secure him. We thank Mark and the Club for agreeing to this.”

KBC takes place on Wednesday 16th October and is a key fixture in the second Kirklees Business Week (KBW). Monday 14th October sees the start of KBW, an 'Open Source' Business Week, full of sector specific seminars all run by different businesses and all free to all.

The principle of KBW is to provide a platform for Kirklees Businesses to share their knowledge across the district spread across the week in a manner that is convenient for all sectors of business in Kirklees. All venues will be supplied free and all event delegate places will be free.
