Lansdown Club Member Profile: Sounds Commercial

Each month we’ll be profiling different members of the Lansdown Club, one of the fastest growing business memberships in the South West. This month we hear from Kieran Murphy, Group Operation Director at Lansdown Club member, Sounds Commercial.

Producing events may be at the core of the business here at Sounds Commercial but at the very heart of our business are the people who make us the company we are today.  This very same statement can be said for the Lansdown Club, which is one of the many reasons why we enjoy the working relationship we have developed with the Club and its members so much.

Supporting the “Big Sports Speaker” events, as headline sponsor, we have watched it grow from strength to strength and it has become a key appointment in more and more people’s monthly diaries. It gives a real opportunity for businesses across Bristol and the South West to come together and network, sharing stories from all walks of business life.

At Sounds Commercial we work with many aspects of sporting life. We are very proud of our association with the LMA (League Managers Association), the Football in Business Awards and the Sports Business Awards, to name but a few, which is why our association with Bristol Sport is all the more important. Indeed for many, getting to meet their sporting heroes can be a once in a lifetime opportunity, whereas here at the Lansdown Club we get to do this on a monthly basis!

We were very proud to receive the accolade of being Bristol Sport’s, ‘Preferred Technical Production Supplier’ which has opened us up to a whole new range of events. With these events regularly taking place at the stadium, we have come to see the Lansdown Club flourish into a recognised, professional event space for all kinds of businesses. We have also noticed the increase in the number of clients who choose both the Lansdown Club and the stadium, as a whole, as their first choice venue in the City.

One of the major highlights of the Sounds Commercial year is producing Bristol Sport’s annual Gala Dinner. We have delivered this event for the past three years and now look forward to the next one when we will use everything in our resources and power to produce an event that is even bigger and better than the last one.

The relationship we have with Bristol Sport is one that we cherish.  To be able to play a small part in the major events they put on at the stadium has been a delight.

The benefit the Lansdown Club brings to the local business community is enormous. The place goes from strength to strength and we are extremely confident there will be exciting developments to share in over the coming months and years.   

“From my personal perspective it has been great to be directly involved with large prestigious events in the South West region, thanks to the fantastic events facilities that are now on offer at the Ashton Gate Stadium. Through the Lansdown Club we have been incredibly lucky enough to work with new companies who now choose Bristol as the location rather than always looking to stage major events in either London, Birmingham or Manchester.  It is a great accolade for me and my colleagues to work alongside all the best businesses in Bristol, the South West and beyond that have now been drawn to the stadium.  This is down to the ongoing success of the Lansdown Club. I feel this is merely the start of a very long and successful journey”
