Lawrence Harvey

Lawrence lives in Reading with his wife Pauline and will be operating in the Reading territory.

Lawrence has enjoyed a successful career in the IT and communications arena. For 12 years, Lawrence has been involved with mobile network communications and infrastructure support.  Over the last few years Lawrence has managed a large team of technical staff to ensure that the mobile networks keep working and if there is a fault, then Lawrence and his team were ready to get us talking again as soon as possible. Lawrence grabbed the opportunity in November after redundancy to leave this industry and embark on a career with Premier Sport.

Lawrence gained his technical knowledge through the Army where he could be found in the battlefield with a radio antenna on his back making sure that everyone knew what was going on in times of great pressure. It was also through his Army career that Lawrence enjoyed his love for sport by playing football, rugby and boxing.

Lawrence has all the attributes to become successful as a Premier Sport franchisee. His positive and open manner and ability to relate to all will be invaluable as he embarks on his new career. But most importantly he will go about building his business with a big smile on his face.

We are all delighted to have Lawrence in the Premier Sport network and wish you every success.

This functionality enables you to add a different coach to different days on the course. The add and delete sessions and changing from full and half days has also been moved to this new area.
