UCFB is delighted to announce that Brighton & Hove Albion Chief Executive Paul Barber will be speaking to UCFB Wembley students next week.

Barber, who has been at the Premier League club since 2012, and was recently appointed as Deputy Chairman alongside his CEO duties, will speak to students on Wednesday 4th March.

Since moving to the south coast from Canadian side Vancouver Whitecaps, Barber has helped Brighton to rise from the Championship to now their third consecutive season in the Premier League. He combines his role at the Seagulls alongside being a member of the FA Council.

His previous roles have included being Director of Marketing & Communications at The FA, as well as Non-Executive Director at Tottenham Hotspur and the English Football League.

Barber’s senior role at a Premier League football club means this guest speaker talk is a rare chance for students to learn from and engage with one of the most experienced professionals in English football.
