Our guest this episode is Guy Rippon, Head of Foundation and Community Partnerships at Aston Villa Football Club.

As an executive in his second football foundation, Guy has worked to produce incredibly unique programmes for his community. Not just a focus on sport, or indeed football.

During the episode we discuss initiatives and programmes from Villa Vision that supports eye health to employability programmes that cater to local industry needs in more ways than one.

We dig into the day to day challenges and Guy’s tactics for making the most of all opportunities.
