The event was held in support of the RFU’s All Schools programme and LandAid – the property industry charity. CBRE are the principal partner for the All Schools programme and will present their involvement in the initiative to get more young people involved in rugby at grass roots level.
The evening included a panel session with former Rugby players that are now involved in Property and Construction – sharing stories of how the sporting careers have informed their professional journeys in our key sectors.
Simon Cooke (Director, APAM) was joined by Mike Friday (UK Retail Business Unit Head, DTZ), Eric Peters (Director, of Strategy Asset Management at JLL), Sean McGuire (CEO, Flanagan Group) and Ciaran Bird (Managing Director of CBRE).
