Best pitch presenter you’ve ever seen

Not specifically because of a pitch, but Saints’ former CEO Ralph Kruger as an outstanding presenter. He would passionately recite the Club’s manifesto from memory – only he could really get away with it.

Best sports marketing campaign (that wasn’t yours)

England rugby and 02 – “wear the rose” for the way it captures the one-off nature of a world cup.

Best young industry talent

I am going to give your man Yannick Ramcke the nod. He knows his stuff.

Best sporting event attended

Time to reveal I am a badger. Boxing day test in Melbourne – we never win but
it’s a hell of day.

Best sporting event on TV

CWC final 2019 – it was being streamed on my phone in fact, unforgettable
moment.

Best brand ambassador

I like Mat Fraser for this one. Not a mainstream choice, but authentic as they come, and people want what he’s got.

Best box set

The last dance.

Best industry event or conference

Not a veteran on this front but I prefer informal events that get different
perspectives round a table. An innovation in sport dinner hosted by Phil Jones last year was fantastic.

If it’s to be measured on time and money spent, the pavilion at Tunbridge Wells Cricket Club.

Jurgen Klopp, Chris Gayle, Dwayne Johnson, Kevin Hart, Richard Gillis & Sean Singleton
