It was great to see so many of you at our first dinner of 2018. A full house heard Jayne Anne Gadhia deliver a warm, funny and inspiring speech, covering the events and experiences that have shaped her career. And impressively – with no notes! She proved herself to be someone very clear what she stands for, as well as being clear what she wouldn’t stand for. She was a wonderful guest.
Next week The Rt Honourable Philip Hammond, Chancellor of the Exchequer will be joining us for a special breakfast event. Unsurprisingly this event is a sell out, so apologies to those who were unable to get tickets.
Our speaker at our next dinner on March 7th is Dominic Barton, Global Managing Partner, McKinsey and Co. Dominic has been at the helm of McKinsey since 2009. As well as leading the organisation, Dominic has a focus on the role business leadership plays in creating social and economic value. He will be giving us his personal reflections on the importance of talent to organisations. I am sure he will also be well prepared to answer more wide-ranging questions about the issues and uncertainties affecting businesses both locally and globally. So, don’t be shy!
He will be a fascinating guest, so hurry to book your place!
I look forward to seeing you all soon.
