Join us in the 1883 Lounge for our first Magpies Business Club event of the 2018/19 season. Enjoy breakfast, network with like-minded business people and be inspired by our guest speaker, James Cole. James established and built Cruise118.com - four cruise retail brands with a combined turnover of over £200m and which of course is the Chorley FC shirt sponsor. Personally, James has raised over £100k for charity by completing a 260-mile bike ride and five marathons.
He was recently awarded the accolade of Honorary Fellow at The University of Central Lancashire, to go with his induction into the travel industry’s Hall of Fame as Young Entrepreneur of the Year in 2011. James’ success hasn’t come without significant challenges, having launched Cruise118.com just 10 weeks before the start of the world’s greatest recession in 2008.
Commercial Manager at Chorley FC, Josh Vosper said: “Our last event was a tremendous success as we continue to reinforce our community ethos - not just with fans but with businesses too. James is a great speaker with a fascinating story and I’m sure people will be interested to know how he built Cruise118.com into the company we know today.”
He added: “At Chorley FC we are passionate about local people and this is truly the perfect place where long lasting business relationships are built. This is key as we continue to develop off the pitch and look towards the 2018/19 season. Some of you have been ‘a part of the journey’ from the very beginning and others have just arrived. It doesn’t matter as everyone is welcome in our Magpie Family.”
