Sports Podge

By 5th October 2012November 10th, 2014Penguin Perspective

Sports Podge is part of a series of Podge events run as an excuse to bring leading players from the sports industry together for a spot of fun and no-agenda networking. Begun in 2005, the event is run by Phil Jones and Jimmy Worrall with the Naked Penguin Boy team’s assistance in organising the website, registration, seating and eating arrangements.

A brilliant event that has been created specifically for its attendees with such sporting luminaries as Terry Venables, Ivan Gazidis, Karen Pickering, Mick Fitzgerald, Clare Balding and Dame Kelly Holmes attending.

2It’s networking of a sort but so much more, an opportunity to exchange stories, have fun and enjoy superb food and wine but with no politics, no speeches and no agenda. The event is held at the Nash Room in the Institute of Directors, with approximately 220 guests attending the lunch followed by drinks and nibbles in the bar downstairs.


Naked Penguin Boy manages the digital aspect of the site, including the back end database. Our content managed software registers the guests and allocates seating as well as taking food orders while storing and displaying the list of attendees.
