Good afternoon,

As many of you know, as part of the Lawyers’ BD Club, I run The General Counsel Dining-Club.  A number of our previous invite-only dining club events were held in London, Dublin and New York.

On Thursday 28 May from 6.00 pm to 7.00 pm, I will be hosting social drinks (via zoom) for the GC Dining Club.

Places will be limited: 14 places available

If you are a General Counsel or Head of Legal and would like to join us for a drink, I’d be delighted to hear from you.

RSVP

To RSVP, please email me at:

I look forward to hearing from you.

In the meantime, I hope you and your families stay well and safe.

Take care,

Colin

Some Comments on Previous GC Dining Club Evenings

“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!”

**

“Dear Colin, thank you so much for a splendid evening. It was a perfect venue-delicious food and drink –and delightful company. Margaret was superb-stimulating a very interesting debate. Thank you so much for bringing together such an interesting group and thanks to Julie-Ann for enabling it to happen. Hope to attend further events-breakfast sounds very interesting. Best wishes.”
**
Thanks very much Colin, it was a most enjoyable evening.   Margaret was an excellent speaker, going well beyond the opening remarks I was expecting and drawing out a really good range of points from guests such that we had a lively and in-depth discussion around the hot topic of disruption.   It’s interesting how examining the effect of major changes in the business world on other industries can actually help us achieve better focus on the challenges we have on our home ground – the legal services industry. Best wishes”
**
“Colin, a big thank you for organising last night’s event. A lively discussion, interesting people, great venue, great food – what’s not to like!  See you soon.”

“Hi Colin, thanks for a great night last night. It was a really good presentation and discussion. Some interesting views expressed. Best regards”
**
“Colin, thanks again for an interesting and enjoyable evening. See you soon.”

“Dear Colin Thank you for inviting me. The venue was lovely and the debate was really good. I thoroughly enjoyed myself.”
**
“Colin just a quick note from me to thank you and Julie-Ann very much for a most enjoyable evening on Wednesday. I thought it was excellent. Look forward to seeing you again at some point in the future. Best wishes.”
**
“Colin, thank you very much for your hospitality on Wednesday. I had a very enjoyable and useful evening. It was nice to meet some GC’s from other organisations. I found the speaker very interesting with good sensible advice we can all use to good effect. Best wishes”
**
“Hi Colin, many thanks for the invitation to last week’s GC event. I thoroughly enjoyed it, and thought your choices of venue and speaker were terrific, as usual. Speak soon.
**
“Thank you Colin for arranging another great event today which I very much enjoyed. I was just sorry that I couldn’t contribute more to the debate given the parlous state of my vocal chords! I will look forward to seeing you at the next one….! Thanks also to Julie Ann for sponsoring this morning.”
**
“Great session – insightful topics delivered by even more interesting characters.  I could well have spent longer as there was clearly further ground to cover/develop. How you manage to consistently attract speakers of such depth and breadth is impressive – are you sure you should not be the one speaking on “Networking”?! Look forward to seeing you Thursday morning.”
**
“Hi Colin, I enjoyed the meal, the speakers and the discussion – a great combination! And also a big thank you to Karena and Julie-Ann for sponsoring the event – great location!”
**
“Colin, thanks again for another brilliant event.  Terrific venue and food, and great speakers! Enjoy St Patricks Day, and I look forward to catching up again soon.”
**
“Colin, really enjoyed the event.  Excellent venue, two really interesting speakers and good conversation before, during and afterwards.  Thanks to you and Invest NI.  Enjoy the rest of St P’s day and see you on Thursday!”
**
Hi Colin, I enjoyed the GC event very much. A big thank to you, Julie-Ann for organising it. I look forward to seeing you all at the next event.”
**
 I really enjoyed it and found it very thought-provoking. So sorry I had to run off.  Unfortunately, I can’t make Thursday but hope I can make another meeting in future?”
**
“Dear Colin, it was great to see you at your event.  I greatly enjoyed it and found the conversation of both speakers very interesting and stimulating. Thank you very much for inviting me, unfortunately,  I won’t be free this Thursday morning as I will be in [ ]. However, please do stay in touch and invite me to future events.” 

**

“Colin – thanks again for putting this together.  Good company, good food and stimulating conversation – what more could you wish for?”
**
“Hi Colin, it was a very interesting and enjoyable evening and Margaret’s thoughts and management of the conversation were indeed great. Hope to see you at a future event.”
**
“Dear Colin, many thanks to you especially for organising this excellent dinner in distinguished company and for inviting me. It was a fantastic evening and Margaret indeed gave a very interesting presentation and led a good follow-up discussion. Thank you also to Julie-Ann for making this all possible. Please never hesitate to get in touch if I can be of any help in the future with regards to anything related to the [  ] legal market. Colin, let’s get together soon to catch up properly?”
