Kick It Out are pleased to confirm that presenter and journalist, Jules Breach, will co-host this year’s national Raise Your Game conference at the Emirates Stadium on Monday 15 April.

Jules is an experienced freelance broadcaster who works with BT Sport, the Premier League, Fantasy Premier League and Opus Sport. She will share duties with Anne-Marie Batson, who was announced as a co-host in March.

The Raise Your Game series, supported by the Premier League, is Kick It Out’s unique careers programme which helps provide opportunities for people who aspire to work in football.

Over 300 people will attend the national conference, a free mentoring event where guests receive vital insight and knowledge from professionals across several areas of the game, including:

  • Media and Communications
  • Management and Coaching
  • Community and Grassroots
  • Football Business
  • Sports Science and Physiotherapy
  • Intermediaries
  • Refereeing

Attendees on the day will take part in careers workshops, listen to speeches and panel discussions, and receive one-to-one mentoring from football industry experts.

Jules Breach will join the likes of Bianca Westwood, Samantha Johnson, Manish Bhasin, Reshmin Chowdhury, Max Rushden and Clarke Carlisle in hosting the national conference on behalf of football’s equality and inclusion organisation.

After attending #RYG18 as a mentor, Jules is looking forward to an increased role in this year's conference.

“I’m really excited to be hosting this year’s Raise Your Game – I was a mentor last year and found the event so inspiring,” she said. “If you’re coming along on the 15th you’ll get to meet plenty of like-minded people who are passionate to succeed, you’ll get the chance to be mentored and speak to successful journalists, presenters, writers and other people working in the industry!

“You’ll also come away from the event full of ideas, new contacts and friends, and will feel motivated about the next stage of your career. Looking forward to seeing you there!

Troy Townsend, Kick It Out’s Head of Development who leads on the Raise Your Game series, is delighted to welcome Jules on board.

He said: “This year’s national Raise Your Game conference promises to be another fantastic event, filled with invaluable support and advice for more than 300 people trying to break into the football industry.

“Jules is a broadcaster at the top of her game and together with Anne-Marie, I have no doubt she will inject enthusiasm and energy to an already exciting day at the Emirates.”
