EMC celebrates the Scotland Sporting Stage 2014
With Scotland set to provide the stage for two of the world’s most anticipated sporting events over the next few months – starting with the 20th Commonwealth Games in Glasgow in July/August and closely followed by the Ryder Cup at Gleneagles in September – EMC’s Scottish team was delighted to play a part in the anticipation of both events.
Customers and partners were invited to put their questions to Sir Chris Hoy , Great Britain’s most decorated Olympian and probably the most well-known Scottish athlete in the world, and Billy Foster, Britain’s most successful golf caddie ever, who has shared the successes of golfing greats including Seve Ballesteros, Sergio Garcia, Darren Clarke and Lee Westwood.
With TV sports presenter Gabby Logan at the helm, the event in Edinburgh let EMC Scotland’s customers and partners put their questions to the sporting greats, and also put themselves to the test with a cycling and putting competition.
Martin Brown, EMC Country Manager in Scotland, said: “We have had a great deal of success in Scotland in growing the business over the last few years and we were looking for an opportunity to thank those people who have been part of that success, so the fact that we were able to do that in the company of three inspiring professionals like Sir Chris, Billy and Gabby was just fantastic.
“Everyone who was there had a great time, including those of us on the team, and we were all inspired by these sporting greats whose dedication and will to win is truly phenomenal.
“With the Commonwealth Games in Glasgow now only a few weeks away the build-up here in Scotland is gathering pace and if the success of our event is anything to go by we are set for a truly memorable feast of sport during the remainder of 2014.”
