Free event: The Glazer Gatekeeper

Ever wondered what life is really like working for a premier league football club? Find out on Wednesday 23 March when Tehsin Nayani delivers a guest lecture at Southampton Solent University to discuss his book, The Glazer Gatekeeper, which was published last year.

Having served as press spokesman to the Glazer family between 2005 and 2011 in relation to their ownership of Manchester United, Nayani will recall his day-to-day dealings with the family, the football club and the global press pack amid an ever-changing football and business environment.

Prior to his role working for the Glazer family, Nayani was a director of a London financial public relations agency, where he advised the boards of several multinational corporations. Before moving into public relations, Nayani spent a decade as a business television journalist for the Financial Times, CNBC Europe and Reuters, where he interviewed an array of world business leaders in his capacity both as an on-air correspondent and a senior producer. Nayani holds an MBA from Cranfield University and a BA from Sussex University.

The lecture will take place at 10.30am on Wednesday 23 March in HC025, Herbert Collins building, Southampton Solent University, East Park Terrace, Southampton SO14 0YN. This free event is open to the public.
