Last week saw Sharon and I head to the prestigious House of Commons for our first ever Leader's Luncheon. It was such an honour to organise this event as the location really is magnificent and does have a really special place in our calendar of events.
Our speaker this year, Alastair Campbell, did not disappoint. We learnt all about Alastair's view on current politics and also a few interesting facts about the man himself. Believe it or not he is an excellent bagpipe player and started his career in journalism by winning a bet with a friend over who could get published first.
He also showed his prankster side and "borrowed" Bob Blackman's phone whilst he was speaking, sending a couple of texts! Made me think about data security in our own workplaces.
All in all it was a fabulous day and we have already had lots of feedback from guests such as:
I would just like to say thank you for a great day yesterday it was a fabulous lunch and great getting to see some of the Houses of Parliament too - Smith & Nephew
