An Evening with Rick Parry in Singapore
Christina Turner, Director of Development and Alumni Relations, was in Singapore in September with representatives from the University of Liverpool Management School for a special event with University of Liverpool graduate and Chair of the School's Advisory Board, Dr Rick Parry (BSc Hons Mathematics 1976, Hon LLD 2008).
The event attracted more than 30 graduates who listened to Dr Parry deliver a fascinating insight into his career in sport spanning more than 30 years.
Dr Parry spoke at length about his 11 year reign as CEO of Liverpool FC, offering a great perspective into the highs and lows of running one of the world’s biggest football clubs. He also focused on his time as the CEO of the English Premier League and how he went about securing the biggest ever TV deal in football at the time.
Graduates were able to ask Dr Parry questions about his career before being treated to a luxury buffet dinner and networking drinks reception. Dr Parry, an adviser to the University of Liverpool Management School hosted a similar event in Hong Kong a week earlier and will continue to help support the Management School in a global setting.
Christina said “It was fantastic to see so many graduates at this event and we look forward to meeting you again soon. If you weren't able to attend this event this time, don't worry we will be back in Singapore soon. Thank you all for your warm welcome and your continued support of the University of Liverpool.”
