Hope you are well.
Have a look at this video for what I stand for and what I would like to bring to the board:
This will hopefully answer some of your questions. I will attempt to answer the others.
Overall Soulnet, there is a gap on the board for an expert in marketing and branding. I fill this gap. I have built a business from the ground up and service many big brands and start up business on how to grow their business and market their products, target new customers etc etc. I will bring this expertise to the board. We need this expertise.
I have been involved in the club for over 6 years. I have dedicated time to help raise funds for the club, bring in a network of people, help players with looking for jobs after retiring and career paths, help get people to events etc etc. I have literally dedicated thousands of hours over 6 years to helping the club. People who know me will know how much work I have put in. Ask the event staff and senior executive if you want to know.
I am not some big corporate guy coming in with a sinister agenda. I sit with all other members at Etihad near where the players come out with my father, brother and oldest daughter. I am just as passionate about the bombers as everyone else. I feel I can contribute more
I want to help the club get even better. As per what was being said at the Members forum on Tuesday night, we have had a good year, but we need to get better. Are you happy coming 7th and not winning a final since 2004? We need the best team on and off the field to get better and we need specific skill sets to help get us there.
Yes I would resign from the EEC if I was elected. I am sure I would go to events but I wouldn’t lead it.
EEC is a business network. All coteries usually have some criteria. This is just happens to be business. People have joined through people they know etc. It is a friends of friends. We have deliberately kept it small because it means people can get to know each other and become good friends. We haven’t advertised it widely at all( hence not on this site). I organised an event last night for members (not EEC and did actually have it posted on "red and black don the sash site.
How will I focus on individuals, family, 3 game etc? Well first of all listen to them and understand if they have any particular issues. I am sure most of them are happy. I have spoken with a lot of regional members over the last week and I am understanding the issues they have. I.E feeling a bit left out as they obviously take a long time to travel to games and feel that they don’t get to meet players etc. So I think the regional members should be put on the agenda and perhaps work out some ways to engage better with them.
Regards to the other candidates, look I am sure I could work well with any of them well. They are all strong candidates and I commend all of them for having a crack.
Hot Jam donuts by the way ha ha.
