MAKING A POINT: AFC Bournemouth commercial director Rob Mitchell who co-hosted the AFC Business November Breakfast

Dozens of decision-makers and entrepreneurs gathered at AFC Bournemouth’s Vitality Stadium for the AFC Business November Breakfast event.

More than 90 business delegates gathered in the club’s Top Floor Restaurant for the popular networking event.

The 7.30am to 10am event was hosted by AFC Bournemouth commercial director Rob Mitchell and partnerships manager Amy Brunton.

The event was sponsored by AFC Business club partners Bournemouth Chamber of Trade and Commerce, Dorset Chamber of Commerce and Industry, Dorset Mental Health Forum, Hill Osborne and Strategic Solutions.

It included a full English or continental breakfast, numerous networking opportunities and a business card draw.

Mr Mitchell said: “This was another outstanding breakfast event to get the business day off to a flying start with a thought-provoking speech and some excellent company.

“AFC Business really is at the centre of everything AFC Bournemouth does commercially and it is very much down to our members for making the business club such a success.”

Guest speaker was former television presenter turned PR man Lee Peck who spoke of the need for businesses to have emergency response protocols in place to protect hard-earned reputations during times of crisis.

AFC Business, the free to join business club with almost 1,800 members, is the engine for all the club’s commercial activities.

It was launched in 2009 and gives members exclusive offers at AFC Bournemouth, access to events and is a great chance to meet local businesses.
