Football’s first Super-Agent, Jon Smith, lifts the lid on the beautiful game

KidsOut’s exclusive ‘Evening with a Football Super-Agent’ on the 14th March 2017 raised over £3,000 for the charity. Taking place at the Courthouse Hotel in London, this was the first event of its kind that KidsOut has put on and it certainly proved a huge success.

With world-leading business guru René Carayol acting as host and master of ceremonies, the evening featured an exclusive interview with Jon Smith, ‘Football Super-Agent’. With a career spanning more than 25 years, Jon Smith knows the business of football like no one else. Whether it’s  a  multi-million-pound  deal  cut  on  the  toss  of  a  coin  or  an outrageous demand from a club or player, Smith has seen it all.

The audience were guided through the twists and turns of Jon Smith’s incredible career, including his role in the transition of football from sport to business.  Attendees were then given the opportunity to ask anything about the ‘behind the scenes’ aspect of the nation’s favourite sport in the Q&A session.

The evening’s raffle prizes were kindly donated by René and Jon, including a tailor-made coaching session with René Carayol, and a personally signed copy of Jon’s book, ‘The Deal’, which is currently a best-seller.

KidsOut would like to thank René Carayol and Jon Smith, who both donated their time for the evening. Thank you also to everybody that attended the evening.
