This press release arrived recently but as the event was in Kensington we thought not appropriate for the newspaper. However, as it was organised by a local N3 firm of accountants, we thought it perfect for the blog.
Marjorie and Linda serve up another successful ladies’ event
Solicitors, barristers, accountants, HR professionals and senior ladies from the world of business gathered for the second Ladies’ Afternoon Tea in the Orangery at Kensington Palace Gardens.
The event, which took place on Friday 11th June 2010, was hosted by Marjorie Bremner, HR partner at London-based chartered accountancy firm Berg Kaprow Lewis (BKL) LLP, in conjunction with Linda Goldman, an employment judge and barrister from Henderson Chambers.
The informal gathering was designed to allow guests to relax and meet like-minded ladies in beautiful surroundings without any pressure to network or sell. One solicitor commented that it was so refreshing not to have to talk about divorce law!
The event commenced with champagne and a light-hearted quiz.
Guests had been asked to submit an interesting fact about themselves or their family that they were happy to divulge. These included: “I know how to breathe fire”, “I am related to Walt Disney”, “My great-grandfather built the building nearest to Nelson’s Column in the early 1930s” and “I once took part in a Spencer Tunick naked art installation with over 500 people in Selfridges”.
Afternoon tea and cakes were served and, at the end of the afternoon, guests received BKL Casemir chocolates and goodie bags donated by skincare and make-up brand Trish McEvoy.
Commenting on the event, Marjorie said: “The location and food were superb and the company delightful. As one guest wrote: ‘So many interesting people – it makes me think what a wonderful place London is to work’.”
