Following on from the outstanding success of the inaugural Big Lunch in 2017, we are delighted to announce that we are hosting the 2nd Big Lunch on Friday 28 September 2018
In addition to being a wonderful opportunity to network with fellow businesses and professionals, The Big Lunch is an ideal event at which to entertain prospects, existing clients or teams.
Headlining a marvellous list of speakers is Liverpool and footballing legend Kevin Keegan OBE . With his crazy hair styles and fantastic football, Kevin is never without something to talk about in his after dinner speeches.
Kevin started out playing for the town of Scunthorpe and got his lucky break with Liverpool under Bill Shankly. Kevin has been both England Player of the Year and European Player of the Year. He is also one of the very few players who has both captained for and managed England. After an impressive football career and taking the managerial position at both Newcastle and England, Kevin retired from management.
Some testimonials of Kevin:
"Kevin was the total professional, we have had many ex footballers in the past. But he is in a league of his own. His presentation skills had humour and interesting,facts and was tailored specifically for the audience. I can not recommend him highly enough."
Stuart Levin, Make A Dream Charity
Kevin was a fantastic speaker, and more importantly a fantastic bloke - he was extremely professional and worked with the club on the night to help raise as much money as possible. The feedback from the audience was all positive, and he took time out to speak to everyone.. He was the best speaker we have had to date, and i would not hesitate to recommend him..

Kevin Keegan was the best we have ever had our members have all said the same.
A quote from the FSOA would be. How do you follow that? Kevin Keegan was a star on the pitch and is now a star on stage.We would recommend Kevin to anyone and would at some point ask him to return for us.
