Dragons interim CEO Dr Chris Brown has been getting to know the region’s sponsors with the region’s first corporate Q & A session. The event, for both current and potential sponsors was held in the Business Lounge of the new Bisley Stand and gave partners and guests a chance to enjoy the suite in its non-matchday setting.
It was an opportunity for sponsors to ask Chris any questions that they felt may affect them and their sponsorship, specifically about the health of the region, the direction in which the Dragons are heading and what to expect from the future.
“Everybody is aware that there are issues facing regional rugby in Wales,” said Dr Brown “but we are working hard to make our business robust enough to meet the challenges facing us both on and off the field.
“We are fortunate at the Dragons to have a strong network of support from sponsors, partners and indeed from our supporters and it is important to keep dialogue with these parties open over the coming season.”
The presentation was designed not only to give a clear and honest picture of where the Dragons are, but also gave a real sense of how important each of our sponsors is to the region and how they fit in as part of our regional community.
This was an introductory event but, given its success and the reassurance felt by all those who attended, it is hoped that we will continue similar interactions with our partners by staging such events every quarter.
