In spite of the poor weather conditions there was still a very good turnout with quality networking taking part in the room.
Naomi Fell warmly introduced me to her legal colleague and friend Gale Escolme. Gail runs her own business specialising in employment law. Gail is a great conversationalist and I very quickly warmed to her – I was not surprised to learn how revered Gail is by both her clients and peers (Visit her website #testimonies).
I made my way across the room to congratulate Russ Partington on his recent academic achievement. At the same time Philip Buckler- Brown insisted on sharing his recently acquired ‘gift’ for a magic trick involving a pound coin, penny coin and a glass!
I had to inform and reassure Michael Garbutt that the reports of my demise where great exaggerated. Apparently a network event had taken place without my attendance and Michael naturally assumed the worst!
The event was also a great opportunity to consolidate existing networking relationships since the seasonal break and wish each other a happy new year.
