On Wednesday, 7th March 2018 Ash Dykes, his team members and members of the public gathered to announce and celebrate the upcoming record-breaking World First that will be Ash’s 2018 – 19 annual-spanning expedition, traversing the Yangtze River on foot.
The longest river in the world to flow through a single country. Its length has never been walked, until now.
In 2018 Ash will attempt his greatest expedition yet, as he walks from the Yangtze’s source in the melt waters of the Jianggendiru Glacier on the Tibetan Plateau to its delta near Shanghai, where it meets the East China Sea.
I’m delighted, especially, to confirm their enormous commercial success in the club’s FA Cup run during the 2016/17 season. They sold the vast majority of sponsorship, advertising and hospitality around the Cheltenham Town (2nd Round tie), AFC Wimbledon (3rd Round tie), Leeds United (4th Round tie), ending with Arsenal (5th Round tie). 4x major FA Cup home matches inside three months. For Jeremy and Clair, this wasn’t just about selling. They account managed and delivered every aspect of each item of commercial inventory sold. They enabled the club to raise its profile, matching the playing success off the pitch, whilst protecting the club’s core values and ethos, which focuses on community outreach, families and being a fully inclusive club.

However, 14-years on, with a mountain of experience behind us and an unrivalled ‘black-book’ of contacts wanting to invest in sport-related marketing opportunities, including athlete endorsement, we have made a decision to diversify into representing a carefully selected few athletes. Our focus is to manage their commercial interests; sponsorship, endorsement and ambassadorship arrangements.LEARN MORE
