JP Business Club returns for second season

The JP Business Club is back and better than ever! Launched to great success in 2016, the club is run by Hull KR’s Head of Rugby Jamie Peacock MBE to provide members with a unique insight into the world of elite sport.

Having proven to be extremely popular following its initial launch last season with 90 per cent of members signing up again for 2017, the business club has now returned with the first of a new series of exclusive events set to take place next month and is welcome new businesses now.

Former Great Britain captain and Super League Man of Steel Peacock said: “We couldn't be prouder of the response we've had during the first year of the JP Business Club.

"We focused on getting a mix between offering an insight into sport, exclusivity, business development and just actually having a good time.

"Plenty of cross-business networking took place, too, and to have 90 per cent of those involved already signed up again for 2017 shows we got that balance right.

"We now only have a few more places available for this year and the challenge is to move forward.

"One of the big attractions will be having our new head coach Tim Sheens on board to share his wealth of experience and knowledge from the highest echelons of rugby league, so we're confident the JP Business Club will be bigger and better than last season."

Mr Sheens will head up a Winning With Tim event to kick off the business club's new season in February, with one of the most decorated and experienced coaches in world rugby providing a unique insight into developing a winning mentality and preparing for success.

Other events during the year will include a session on developing the best elite training programmes; an exclusive networking opportunity at York Racecourse and the club's own take on A Question Of Sport, involving stars from across the world of sport.

Exclusive membership to the JP Business Club is for one person per company, with members invited to bring a guest to each event.
