"An Evening with Wayne Madsen" - A Final Year Module Assignment & Project

It's hard to believe we're already in the final term of our Sport Management degree. It feels like only just the other day I started this blog, yet the best part of three years has already passed since that very first post!

"An Evening with Wayne Madsen" - A Final-year project
It's been an interesting journey thus far albeit a lot of fun along the way too. No doubt the opportunities offered to us to gain experience in the field by being involved in live projects and events have not only been extremely valuable, but also most enjoyable.

Our most recent project involves the development and delivery of "An Evening with Wayne Madsen" which we are hoping will be a tremendous success. It's Wayne's Testimonial Year and all the proceeds from the event will be donated to his trust. We've been very fortunate to have the full support of Wayne and his Committee Chairman, Richard Gerver.

The event, which will be held at the University of Derby on the 26th of January, starting at 7pm, will involve a Q&A chaired by BBC and The Sunday Times cricket journalist and broadcaster, Elizabeth Ammon (LegSideLizzy), an auction as well as a prize draw. Wayne will also be talking about overseas cricketers and the impact it has on the English game, his life outside of cricket as well as leadership. The leadership talk in particular should be very useful to students and the general public as it's an attribute we all strive to master in our quest to reach our highest ability, whether it be on the sports field, the classroom, the office or as a parent/mentor.
