A former football chairman has shared his wealth of knowledge about building businesses and being involved with the Football Association (FA) with Suffolk entrepreneurs.

Former Ipswich Town Football Club (ITFC) chairman David Sheepshanks was guest speaker at a lunch hosted by Ipswich Suffolk Business Club on April 12.

Mr Sheepshanks, who chaired the club from 1995 to 2009 and led the building of St George's Park, The FA National Football Centre, spoke of his many senior business and leadership roles and his current role as a leadership coach, as well as about founding and chairing Suffolk Community Foundation and the charitable work he does.

Ipswich Suffolk Business Club chair Luke Morris said: “It was a delight to have David Sheepshanks join us and hear about his tremendous life from building businesses, to chairing Ipswich Town Football Club and being involved with the FA, to his phenomenal charity work.

“He was a great guest speaker and had a wealth of knowledge to share with our members.”

Mr Sheepshanks is patron of the Ipswich and East Suffolk branch of the Samaritans and was president of the Ipswich Citizens Advice Bureau.
