Stephanie Rochford Really interesting discussion, thanks for posting it. I very much agree with Paul's comment about the need to increase the level of civil discourse given the apparently conflicting realities of politics and business - definitely provides more food for thought for our www.longfinance.net initiative.135 days ago
Jeremy Horne Believe it or not, we were in our hotel room in Tel Aviv with Sky news on whilst we were getting ready to go out and Sarah said - "look, Ian's on the telly!!" Proof that Z/Yen follows me wherever I go!!136 days ago
Seasoned readers of Now and Z/Yen will be aware that Z/Yen has held occasional cricket matches and cricket events for many years.
Moreover, several Z/Yen faces can quite regularly be seen at Lord's during the summer; usually at Middlesex matches. Even Michael Mainelli is sure to turn up at Lord's at least once or twice a year. A small Z/Yen mob can usually be seen at Lord's Twenty20 matches.
So it should come as little or no surprise to such readers to learn that Z/Yen is sponsoring a young Middlesex cricketer, Ollie Wilkin, for the Twenty20 campaign this year. Ollie is a budding all-rounder, which demonstrates a balanced portfolio approach to his cricket, very much in line with Z/Yen philosophy.
Sponsoring a Middlesex player is rather good fun and surprisingly inexpensive. If you are intrigued, then click this Sponsor a Middlesex Player link and give it a go.
Last year Z/Yen sponsored Paul Stirling, a batting all-rounder, for the same Twenty20 campaign; Paul's career is now very much on the upward trajectory. Not that Z/Yen is taking the credit for Paul's meteoric rise, of course, but we can say that Paul Stirling has a fascinating approach to risk and reward when he bats.
