Steve Donoughue

The Officers of the Parliamentary All Party Betting & Gaming Group have announced the launch of their Parliamentary seminar series looking at the Future of Gambling. The first seminar will be held on Tuesday 19th April 2016 and will be on The Future of Online Gambling.

The speakers will be Clive Hawkswood, CEO of Remote Gambling Association (RGA), Anthony Werkman, Director of Marketing & Operations at Betway and Richard Flint, CEO of Sky Betting & Gaming.

Steve Donoughue, gambling consultant and Secretariat of the All Party Betting & Gaming Group, said:

“We are very fortunate to have a group of Parliamentarians who are so keenly interested in the British gambling industry. They are not interested in the usual knee-jerk knock-about and are keen to get to grips with the real issues. Many of them have been involved with the industry for decades so are highly influential when gambling issues are debated. This seminar series will allow the trade associations and key industry members to directly communicate with the influencers of Westminster and Whitehall. It’s a must attend event.”

For the first time the Parliamentary All Party Betting & Gaming Group is allowing the invited guests of the industry to attend its meetings and join with the Captains of their industry in the debating what the future of gambling in Britain is.

Clive Hawkswood, CEO of the Remote Gambling Association and key speaker, stated:

“Gambling is an issue that rarely seems to be out of the spotlight, but there has never been a more important time to engage with Parliamentarians to explain how the industry is addressing the challenges it faces and, just as critically, to listen and take full account of any concerns that they may have.  The All Party Betting & Gaming Group’s series of seminars provide an ideal forum for this to take place.  Each sector will have the opportunity to present itself and it is a very welcome initiative.”

The mission statement of the Parliamentary All Party Betting & Gaming Group is ‘To act as a forum for the discussion of issues concerning betting and gaming in the UK’. This seminar series is aimed specifically at providing the platform for an educated and informed exchange of views and issues.
