Finals Fever Crunch Time for Sporting Business?

Player transfers, new franchises, clubs merging, codes merging, coaches moving, TV rights up for grabs and so the stories go! Professional sport in Australia is never far from the headlines and particularly so at this time of the year. So The Boardroom Lunch has chosen this last week in September and three very experienced football identities to provide an insight into the sporting franchises, the challenges they face and what it takes, at finals time, to be the last team standing.

This promises to be a stimulating and entertaining event with Hot 91's Todd in the role of referee and the added benefit of providing much needed funding support to the Sunshine Coast Community Hospice. The proposed initial development of an 8 bed hospice to be established by December 2009 will provide much need palliative care. The estimated $2 million complex will add another valuable dimension to Sunshine Coast community health care.

Seats are limited to 80, book early to avoid disappointment.
