We are delighted that Prescott Jones Insurance Brokers has been announced as the new season sponsor for Swansea Bay Business Club’s 2018 networking season.
The leading insurance brokers, who have offices in Swansea, Cardiff and Bristol, have signed a one year-deal that will see them as overall club event season sponsor, starting with the upcoming season launch event on Friday February 2.
As a result of this, Prescott Jones will benefit from heavy brand exposure and a presence at every event throughout the year, including the flagship lunch at the Liberty Stadium in Swansea, a business breakfast in St Brides Hotel in Saundersfoot and further events in Margam Orangery, the Halliwell Centre in Carmarthen, Swansea’s Marriott Hotel and several other venues throughout the year. The first event in Swansea Bay Business Club’s networking season will be held at the Marriott Hotel in Swansea on Friday February 2 with guest speaker Cerys Furlong, Chief Executive of Chwarae Teg.
Swansea Bay Business Club’s new President, Paul Gardner, is also Sales and Marketing Director at Prescott Jones where he’s responsible for marketing and communication strategy as well as managing insurer relationships for the benefit of clients.
Managing Director of Prescott Jones, Ed Prescott comments: “We are all very proud that Paul has been taken over the presidency and saw it as an ideal time to align ourselves with one of the most respected business clubs in South Wales. Paul is an extremely well valued member of our management team and we have no doubt that he will do an outstanding job as President.
“As a local company we are passionate about fostering great working relationships between clients and businesses across South Wales and share many of the same visions and values as the business club. We are confident that the added presence and exposure we will now have at the club events as well as the ability to consistently network with many of the region’s most influential figures will be extremely beneficial for us as we look to continue our growth.”
Established in 1991 in Swansea, Prescott Jones has been operating across Wales and the West of England for over 25 years advising businesses and private clients. They established a second office in Bristol in 1993. In 2012 they formalised their presence in Cardiff by opening a new office to help support their growing client list
Club President, Paul Gardner said: “I am thrilled that Prescott Jones has agreed to become our new season sponsor for 2018. As a long time member of the business club I have witnessed first hand the benefits that past season and event sponsors have enjoyed and the positive knock on effects it has had for them.
“This type of sponsorship is vitally important as it enables us to continue to invest in sustaining the growth of the club and to provide a platform for hundreds of business men and women to interact and network with each other throughout the year in the company of high-profile guest speakers.”
Paul continued: “We are all looking forward to the launch our 2018 season where we will be joined by Cerys Furlong. As the head of the leading professional agency for the economic development of women in Wales, Cerys is well placed to give her thoughts on how Wales can become a world leader in gender equality in the workplace. This is an area that we are particularly passionate about as a business club, demonstrated by the appointment of our four new board members who have brought us to an even 50/50 gender split on the board.”
“As our season launch we are expecting this event to be popular and we have already sold a large number of tickets. As such we would advise guests to book as early as possible to avoid the disappointment of missing out.”
Swansea Bay Business Club’s season launch event will be held at the Marriott Hotel on Friday February 2 at 12:15 for a 1pm lunch.
