30th Anniversary New Year Speaker Dinner

We were delighted to welcome over 200 guests to our New Year Speaker Dinner, celebrating our 30th Anniversary. Regular readers will know, we normally put on a drinks reception in Jan, but wanted to push the boat out for our big 3-0.

Alongside our clients, we were delighted to be joined by some of the speakers we work with, such as singer turned campaigner Feargal Sharkey, broadcaster Nicholas Owen, actress and presenter Natalie Gumede and even the original Stig, Perry McCarthy!

The audience were treated to a comedy showcase hosted by Tom Allen, with sets from Mat Ricardo, Olga Koch, Emmanuel Sonubi and Andrew Maxwell. There was also a tribute to Mock the Week featuring Zoe Lyons, Hal Cruttenden and Rory Bremner all taking part in a special round of “Unlikely things to hear at a corporate event”.

As our MD, JJ, reflected “It was brilliant to see so many leading lights of the industry sharing in our celebrations, and it was humbling to be joined by so many speakers and well known faces we have worked with over the years. We are a family led company, and we like to see our clients as part of our extended family.”.
