My latest podcast interview was with Martin Ingham, the Chief Executive of Motorpoint Arena Nottingham and National Ice Centre.

I was very excited for Martin to be on the series after seeing him present at the Nottingham City Business Club in March.

In a fascinating discussion, Martin and I discussed

  • The 20+ year journey for Martin and the Arena
  • Some of the key highlights – Ed Sheeran’s first arena gig, Beyoncé, World Ice Hockey Championships
  • What the Arena has meant to the community in a broader sense
  • Amazing stories of innovation in catering, merchandising and security
  • What being ‘Risk Aware’ rather than ‘Risk Averse’ has meant
  • The ambitions for the future of the Arena, including the 25th anniversary celebrations in 2025
  • Martin’s wish for the future – one of the most non ego-fuelled I have ever heard!
