Last night on Tuesday, 3 June 2014, the LBDC (“Lawyers’ Business Development Club“) held the 2nd in its series of Exclusive GENERAL COUNSEL Private-Dining Roundtable events in London.
Our venue was the Lindsay Room – the beautiful private-dining-room at Richard Corrigan’s restaurant, Corrigan’s Mayfair in London.
The photo here was taken just moments before our Guests arrived last night.
General Counsel: Feedback
We had a very enjoyable evening with a wonderful dinner and discussion.
Thank you to our General Counsel for joining us last night and for sharing their views, comments and insights with all of us. For my own part, I certainly learned a lot.
You might be interested to read some of the GC’s comments which were sent to me this morning:
“Hi Colin, thanks to you and Julie-Ann for the dinner last night – what a fabulous venue! I really enjoyed myself. Colin, I’m around for most of July so please get in touch on your return from NY. Hope that all goes very well.”
“Hi Colin, A big thank you to both you and Julie-Ann. I’m sure you could already tell that everyone had a great time and lots of interesting conversations. It’s always a good sign when people are staying behind beyond the scheduled event time. I personally enjoyed the evening very much, learned a great deal and felt very inspired. Well done for organising and facilitating the discussions. Good luck with the event in New York and hope you like the CC New York office. Do drop me a line after you are back to find a time for us to catch up.”
“Colin, Julie-Ann, good morning. Thank you for a wonderful event last night. The topic was a good one. It made the event useful and fun. “
“Good to see everything taking off so well for you – inc. the globe-trotting! Wonderful evening last night. Found the session lively and informative, with some good practice-sharing. ”
“Thank you very much for the kind invitation. I thought it was an excellent evening – obviously, the venue and food were great but there were a really interesting mix of lawyers and some very stimulating debate. I would very much like to be invited to future events. Have a good weekend.“
“Hi there Colin – I enjoyed the evening and really appreciate the invite. You had assembled a good group of people and I hope I played my part in terms of contributing usefully to the conversation. I’d be very happy to have a catch up over a coffee. [ ] has a pretty decent cafe so I’m happy to play host. The next couple of weeks are a bit mad for me, but if you want to let me know what week would work best for you after that, I’m sure we can fix something up. Thanks once again for an interesting and fun evening.”
“Colin, a belated but very sincere thank you to both you and Julie-Ann for hosting/sponsoring the above. It was great to see both of you. An excellent evening all round. A superb venue with some stimulating (sometimes provocative!) debate which clearly proved of interest and value to all those attending – it’s rare to have discussion of such high level and engagement, as well as so many people stay on after an event. Congratulations on organising such a successful and enjoyable evening and wishing you an equally good landing in New York. Wishing you both an excellent weekend and continued success in your endeavours.”
“Colin, I wanted to congratulate you on this excellent event – the whole style of the evening was just the right mix of professional networking with friendly informality. Well done on gathering such an interesting group of people. Best of luck with your NY trip – let me know next time you’re around Green Park and let’s do a catch up tea at Patisserie Valerie!”
