First question

Who are you and what is your role?

I’m Charlie, Senior Account Manager at Square in the Air. I’ve been at SITA for close to six years now and work across several B2C accounts.

Second question

In your six years at Square in the Air, how is sports PR developing?

The way we and likewise our clients do things has certainly changed partly as a result of COVID but also just as the industry has developed over time. You just have to look at what’s going on in the golf world to see how big a vehicle nations see sport as these days and it’s certainly an exciting time to be involved.

Third question

In February you attended The Saudi Cup for the first time, how did you find it?

Well, it was pretty nice to be in 30 degree heat in February! The Saudi Cup is still an event in its infancy but it’s developing at a rate of knots and you just have to look at the number of nations that are sending horses over there for evidence of such.

We’re very lucky at SITA to be able to go to events like The Saudi Cup all around the world and it’s great to be involved in helping it become a mainstay in international horse racing moving forward.

Fourth question

You’re a big golfer, what part of your game is the strongest and how does it compare to your greatest golfing influence?

I try to play once or twice a month and having got down to a handicap of about five a few years ago, I now play off about 10. I’d probably say I’m strongest with my irons and putter but I pale in comparison to my sporting hero Tiger Woods!

Fifth question

One of our small group of Liverpool fans, what changes would you make to the squad going into next season if you were Jurgen Klopp?

Alexis Mac Allister looks a great signing and I’m really looking forward to seeing him in a red shirt. I would have loved Jude Bellingham at the club, but given his inflated price tag, I wouldn’t mind James Maddison being brought in. He’s the sort of player that Klopp will do really well with.

There have been murmurs of Khephren Thuram of Nice and Manu Kone of Borussia Monchengladbach who I can’t say I know much about, but if Klopp likes them, then that’s good with me!

Sixth question

You love the cricket too. If you could be in a batting duo with any cricket player (past or present) who would you pick and why?

James Vince by a country mile - all of my mates will tell you that I’m his biggest fan. In all honesty it’s a travesty that he hasn’t played more for England because he is pure class.

Seventh question

Dream dinner party table of four?

Tiger Woods, Steven Gerrard and Jurgen Klopp - little explanation needed.

Final Question

And finally - if you bought your own racehorse what would you call it and why?

Shouldn’t have bought the driver - a very apt description of my golf game!
