Rugby legends Sam Warburton, Brian O'Driscoll and Lawrence Dallaglio are among the stars who will to meet with licensees learning how to better their businesses.

The recently retired former Wales and British & Irish Lions skipper will attend BT Sport's digital garage event with Google in Cardiff on October 22.

Dallaglio will be in Bristol for a similar event the following day.

Licensees in Belfast have the chance to catch up with BOD later this month, when he meets BT Sport customers at the broadcaster's event on September 24.

And operators in the south east need to be quick to register for two events at the BT Tower next week. They will be joined by Robbie Savage and Ugo Monye.

As well as meeting the stars, licensees will get expert advice from Google on how to improve their digital offer, including social media output, maximising their own website and improving search engine optimisation.

 

 

The first event was held at Anfield last week, with former Liverpool and Real Madrid star Steve McManaman answering questions.

Deeanne Rothwell, licensee at Marston's pub The Top Monkey in Mold, North Wales, said the event gave her some useful tips.

She said: "We started by using Facebook and showing that we are running the pub as part of a family and to extend our community within the village.

"I came here (Anfield) because I need to reach more people with my social media and I am hoping that what I have learnt will increase foot flow into the pub."
