Case Study - ICS visit Hamilton Academical
First financial awareness seminar to be held in Scotland at the home of Hamilton Academicals Football Club with guest presenter Frank McAvennie; organised and presented by Simon of The ICS Group and Associates
This seminar with guest presenter Frank McAvennie was a superb presentation that was hard -hitting but interjected with humour and realism, and brought the message home to those in attendance that Football isn’t all about the mega pay-packets that some of the big names receive. It is all too easy to be drawn into a world of promises and make believe that all too often can lead to a future that is not as rosy and financially watertight as it could be and it doesn’t take much for the downward spiral to begin.
Listening to the recollections of Frank who seemed to have the world at his feet as a young footballer, it is to be hoped that today’s young players can learn from his mistakes and plan ahead to lead the life that they all dream of with a secure future. Supported by the team of Associates, Frank together with Simon of the ICS Group, was able to raise awareness, answering queries as they were raised and steering the audience towards thinking about a properly planned future.
With the seminar being covered by BBC Scotland (see link to the right), and also reported in the Daily Record (see here) this seminar looks like being the first of many within the sporting world.
