There is nothing better than spending a Sunday afternoon at HPC The London Polo Club – watching the exhilarating polo matches, socialising with the friendly members, treading in the divots kicked up by the horses and seeing how this amazing day all comes together.
This is the most exciting ongoing project I am involved in, and it is great to be part of a team who has so much love for the club. Working with the club since mid 2012, I am involved in the following;
- Assessing the existing processes, suggesting and implementing alternative methods and system improvements
- Being a vital member of the Treasury Committee and advising on best practice
- Tightening and streamlining processes to produce accurate and transparent financial information
- Dealing with the financial day-to-day running of the club and assisting to train staff to help in this process
The polo season runs for 6 months, and due to the changes we have introduced, we have seen increased sales over the last 4 years. As a Member’s Club, all profits are invested back into the Club, so it comes as no surprise that HPC The London Polo Club is one of the leading clubs in the UK.
It is an honour to be part of HPC The London Polo Club and being part of history, as the club celebrates its 90th Anniversary season this year (2016). If you have not experienced or watched polo before, you have to visit this amazing club in Richmond.
