Club Fit For Business launches in Monaco, with a fantastic evening of wine tasting with rugby internationals Andrew Sheridan and Carl Hayman.

28 June 2016


Club Fit For Business, Monaco was delighted to host its first event in Monaco featuring a special evening of wine tasting and Q&A with two rugby legends - former England & British Lions prop forward Andrew Sheridan (and now wine sommelier) and recently retired New Zealand rugby union prop Carl Hayman. The private invitation-only evening was the official launch of Club Fit For Business in Monaco and brought together a fantastic selection of the Monaco sports and business communities.

Club Fit For Business is an officially registered Association in Monaco co-founded by Elena D'Ischia, Alessandro Marini of DCS Monaco and Liam Mooney of Blue Pencil. The network promotes the positive attributes of sports which help create successful businesses and business minds. It also brings together the sports community and business worlds, and aims to assist retiring athletes who are looking to make the transition from sport into business. Events are currently run in Dubai, London and Monaco. The next event is planned in October with a very high profile athlete … watch this space! We also plan to run events in French and Italian as well as English.

Liam Mooney said:-

“I was delighted with our first event in Monaco. It encapsulated everything we are trying to achieve with Club Fit For Business. We had two elite sportspeople sharing the ingredients of success in terms of leadership, teamwork and performance. Both of our speakers had the opportunity to tell the business community of Monaco about the next stage of their lives, after retiring from professional sport. We also had a great cross section of the business community, all of whom had a relaxed and enjoyable evening over a few glasses of wine. We had the opportunity to showcase a local start up business in Shimerwalls. The best thing for me was to see the way people interacted before the Q &A, it was fantastic. I am incredibly proud of the evening and to our co-founders, Elena & Alessandro who have supported and put in so much work for the evening. I am looking forward to October already!”

Elena D’Ischia said:-

“The evening was a great success! The eclectic mix of guests, both from the sports and business worlds, came away from this event inspired, especially after the very informative and vivacious Q&A session. A special mention to our co-founder, Liam Mooney, who organised this event with us. We already look forward to the next event! And finally, we were delighted to have the Monaco Channel cover this exclusive event. It certainly added a touch of glamour to the evening and contributed to introducing Club Fit for Business in our Principality!”
