Join us on Thursday 23 August for our Summer Social event, being held at Watford Football Club.This event will offer the opportunity to view the stunning new hospitality entrance, which also includes Watford’s first private champagne lounge, ‘The CARBON’, and also provide an excellent chance to network with friends and colleagues over a delicious two-course lunch served in the Sir Elton John Suite.
Lunch will be followed by a Q&A session with Chamber host Peter Smits, Managing Director, Ashbourne Insurance and our guest speaker, ex-Watford FC player, Richard Johnson, who will provide an overview of the inspiring changes that the club has seen over recent years and insights from the past. So make the most of this opportunity to meet with Chamber members and non-members in a relaxed atmosphere and enjoy a fabulous social event.
Richard Johnson was an integral part of Graham Taylor’s 1999 promotion-winning side. He made well over 200 appearances for the Hornets and scored seven goals in the Watford Division Two title-winning season. Johnson’s trademark strike from long distance was a crucial part of his game. His talents were not limited to fierce efforts from 30 yards out, however they did produce several memorable goals including a spectacular volley against Bristol City and a thunderous effort to clinch a late win against Wolves.
Richard retired from football in 2009, whilst playing for Wellington Phoenix in the Australian A League. Since then he has become a partner in a very successful recruitment company DREAMSEARCH, based in Hemel Hempstead, and more recently returned to the club as Business Development Executive within the Commercial Team.
