What would you do with £20,000? That’s a reality for Start-Ups/Entrepreneurs, thanks to the Southampton FC Positive Impact Pledge to win a £20k tax-free grant and expert mentorship.
With 50 businesses applying for the grant, they needed a platform that enabled them to invite all participants to announce the six finalists. While also using a team that had experience dealing with events on that scale.
We worked closely together with the Southampton FC team to bring their event idea into reality.
As an extra value-add, they invited guest speakers to talk about what positive impact means for them and their business. Speakers included:
David Thomas, Chief Commercial Officer, Southampton FC
Tim Heath, Founder of Coingaming Group and Partner at Yolo Investments
Jeff Dodds, Chief Operating Officer, Virgin Media
Bill Bullen, Chief Executive Officer, Utilita
Their aim? As a key pillar of their Sustainability Strategy, they wanted to thank Positive Impact Pledge participants for their entries, announce the shortlist of 5 finalists and include guest speakers to talk about what positive impact means for them.
Our aim? Ensure all finalists felt comfortable using the platform, guest speakers were able to engage in one another during the Q&A, and allow for the Southampton FC team to revel finalists in an engaging environment.

Live Panel Discussion
“Network My Club team recently supported Southampton Football Club with our Positive Impact Pledge event.
From countless demos and walkthroughs, lots of testing, to on the night hosting/support – the Network My Club team really did make this event as smooth as it could be!
If you’re thinking of hosting what would have been an in person event, virtually, Remo is a great platform to engage the audience and allow for a ‘real’ experience.
Network My Club will take away all the stress of trying to navigate a new platform and make it super easy for both the organiser and attendees to have an enjoyable event.
I really couldn’t recommend Network My Club highly enough!”
Tom Rose, Senior Marketing Manager, Southampton FC
