General Counsel Dinner (Photos & Comments)

The GC Dining Club

(in association with the “LBDC” (“Lawyers’ Business Development Club”)


As many of you know, at the  “LBDC”  (“Lawyers’ Business Development Club”) we run a series of General Counsel private-dining events and round-table discussions in London.

Our last such event was held on Wednesday, 8 October 2014.  Our venue was the beautiful private-dining room (The Swallow Street Rooms) at Richard Corrigan’s wonderful restaurant in Mayfair, London:  Bentleys’ Oyster Bar & Grill.

My thanks to Invest Northern Ireland for sponsoring not only our event on 8 October but also our series of GC private-dining events this year.

We had a very enjoyable evening – if you are interested you can see some of the feedback and photos from our evening.

General Counsel:  Feedback from our GC Guests


“Colin, apologies that it has taken until now for me to email you – it has been ridiculously busy.  Nevertheless, I should have been in contact with you sooner to let you know what an enjoyable evening I had at the LBDC dinner.  You were a fantastic host, [  ] discussion was thought-provoking, the other guests were very engaging and the venue was exceptional.  It also provided [  ] and I with an excellent opportunity to catch up and we managed to squeeze a few pints in after the dinner. I would like to hear more about future LBDC events.  I hope you have had a good weekend and I look forward to speaking with you again soon.”

“Colin, you did it again! That was a great dinner last night – a fantastic setting, an energising and challenging speaker, a great group of people and outsanding food. Above all it was fun and thought provoking, always a great combination. Thanks again for the invitation and I was really pleased I could make it this time. It was great to see you again and I will make sure I don’t leave it so long before we meet up again.”


“Dear Colin, thanks again for the wonderful organisation and the invitation.  I had a very enjoyable evening chatting to you and other guests and everyone I spoke to seems to have had a brilliant time! We also found [ ] talk very helpful and well balanced.  I promised to keep in touch with [ ] to help him to navigate…. [ ] , me and [ ] also talked about a girls lunch sometime. We will certainly keep you posted as you were the connector of these all! Enjoy the beautiful sunny day!”


“Colin, many thanks for your hospitality on Wednesday evening. I thoroughly enjoyed the GC event and meeting both you and my fellow guests. I was at a busy seminar in [ ] yesterday morning, and shamelessly applied the techniques which [ ] shared with us!”
