Jackie Lee-Lis was the lucky person who recently got to meet some of the biggest names in the rugby.
Her name was drawn out of a hat and she accompanied IFA Magazine publisher Alex Sullivan to a one-off, unique opportunity to see the tournament’s finalists close up at the official World Rugby Awards dinner.
The chance to meet the sport’s legends was organised by the IFA Magazine together with the organisers of the official hospitality programme for the Rugby World Cup 2015.
Jackie is a Chartered Financial Planner and operates in the Oxted, Surrey, area. She tells IFA Magazine that she is passionate about helping people secure a happy and financially stable retirement.
Outside of work she is a great fan of rugby (of course), but is also keen on cricket (she is Chair of a cricket club), and also loves dancing and travel, and is currently writing a book (although she didn’t say what on).
“I read IFA Magazine on line and I really hoped I would get the chance to be there!” said Jackie. “I also have an interest in various sports; I believe it’s a way for many, which includes me, to relax and have fun! Most athletes strive for perfection, and advisers need to do the same, so I learn from their experiences, and last but not least, sport affords opportunity for young people in many walks of life to achieve greatness.”
As for the evening itself, she said: “Absolutely brilliant, so great to meet so many of the rugby players, and enjoyed every moment in that amazing venue.”
And for a parting shot, we couldn’t but include this from Jackie, although certainly not prompted: “Well-done IFA Magazine for its constant interesting, relevant and varied information; EIS Magazine also provides great info.”
