Former international professional cricketer, Matt Machan, joined us for a Q+A at the September Network Albion Business Club business networking breakfast at Brighton & Hove Albion FC!

Joining over 110 businesses in the italk Lounge, Matt spoke about his career, which included representing Scotland at the 2015 Cricket World Cup in Australia and New Zealand, before a wrist injury forced him into retirement aged just 26. However, Matt didn’t rest on his laurels and followed his passion for property, starting a property investment business with his brother – Gunns Investments – which has gone from strength to strength.
