The evening will include a talk from Orient CEO, Matthew Porter along with the CEO of the Club’s Community Sports Programme, Neil Taylor, while there will be a numerous opportunities to meet new businesses from across London and the South East.

Roger McKerlie, MD and Founder of SBN commented, “With West Ham moving in to the Olympic stadium in the near future the media spotlight has forgotten the east end’s oldest football club, ‘the O’s’ so we felt it was time to give them some publicity.”
“Orient is a traditional east end club set in a suburban environment and with a superb community scheme. Chaired by the colourful businessman Barry Hearn, Leyton Orient has a powerful story to tell and we will hear from its CEO Matthew Porter about how it goes about survival in the lower leagues.”
Marketing & Partnerships Manager for Leyton Orient, Rob Noble, said, “The SBN are a group of sport loving businesses from across London and the South East so we are delighted to be able to host their Big Bash event to show off the facilities here as well as champion the great work being done by our community scheme in the area to a wide variety of businesses interested in community sport.”
