Former Premier League footballer Andy Cole will be speaking at FTA’s annual Northern Ireland Logistics Lunch, to be held at the Merchant Hotel in Belfast on Friday 5 June 2020.

Famed for his role in helping Manchester United secure a treble victory in 1999 – the Premier League, FA Cup and Champions League titles – the ex-England striker will inspire the audience with his tales of success, failure and resilience as post-lunch entertainment.

Seamus Leheny, Policy Manager for Northern Ireland at FTA, the only business group that represents all of logistics, comments: “We are thrilled to have secured Andy Cole as post-lunch entertainment at this annual event. His illustrious career as a professional footballer – which has seen him go down in history as one of English football’s most talented players – will make for an insightful and inspirational talk for sports fans and non-sports fans alike. I am looking forward to celebrating another successful year for the logistics sector with the industry’s finest; do not miss your chance to join us!

“The annual lunch is the perfect forum at which to recognise industry achievements, network with peers, enjoy a delicious three course lunch and informally debate the key issues and opportunities facing the logistics with logistics experts from across the province.”

The event also serves as a fundraiser for PIPS Charity, a Belfast-based organisation providing suicide prevention and bereavement support services, counselling and therapies throughout Northern Ireland.
