WE ‘SCORE’ JOHN BARNES MBE FOR CHANNEL LIVE EVENT

If you know football, (or even if you don’t), the chances are you’ll know the name John Barnes MBE.

Famous for racking up nearly 600 league appearances for clubs that included Watford, Liverpool, Newcastle and Charlton, the former footballer is somewhat a legend of the game. And at The Celebrity Sauce Co. we were excited to secure him as an after dinner speaker for a recent event.

Channel Live is a two-day exhibition which seeks to connect IT resellers and channel partners with vendors, distributors, service providers and expert speakers, under one roof. Each year Channel Live hosts a gala dinner where attendees can network and enjoy an evening of good food and great entertainment.

John, who had a remarkable 10-year playing career with Liverpool, attended the Channel Live gala dinner in Birmingham. Here, he took to the stage as the after dinner speaker to entertain guests with his anecdotes from a colourful and successful football career.

His success stories include making over 400 appearances for Liverpool alone, winning two first division titles, two FA Cups and the League Cup during his time with the club. He was twice voted for the Football Writers’ Association Player of the Year and in 2005 was inducted into the English Football Hall of Fame.

It is these playing highlights as well as his current work as a commentator and pundit that made his after dinner speech insightful, motivating and of course, full of personality.
