'Kick It Out' hosted their second annual mentoring and leadership conference in London earlier this week, with a number of influential and recognised names and faces from the game all taking part.
Hosted and presented by former Chelsea player Paul Elliott, the conference aimed to discuss pathways into the football industry for the next generation with some of the industry's key figures and the initiative is fully supported by the Equality and Human Rights Commission.
There were a series of workshops, exhibitions and one-to-one meetings during the day and among the guests on show at the event in central London were former Spurs ace and current BBC reporter Garth Crooks, former Scotland manager George Burley, The FA's Independent Non Executive Director Heather Rabbatts, England Women star Rachel Yankey, Charlton Athletic midfielder Jason Euell and The FA's Head Of Media Relations Scott Field.
Speaking about the day, former England international Earl Barrett, Mentoring and Leadership Project Leader for Kick It Out, said: "Today is a perfect reflection of the positives that our game can generate.
“It’s a unique opportunity to discover your own methods and forge your own pathway into the industry. There is a wealth of opportunity and many experienced and talented individuals are present today to help you.”
