Our directors Jim Lee and Grahame Kelly attended the highly anticipated Parliamentary Review Gala at Mansion House in London. It was a very interesting evening attended by dignitaries, notable figures from the world of entertainment and industry leaders. The impressive speakers included broadcaster and journalist Julia Hartley-Brewer and former cabinet Minister and dancer Ed Balls, who took time out to show Grahame some of his slick Strictly Come Dancing moves!
The event marked the publication of this year’s Parliamentary Review which we were proudly selected to be part of and involved us submitting a 1000-word article on the challenges within our industry and sharing best practice as a template for reform. The Review will now be sent out to over half a million individuals, including MPs, Peers at the House of Lords, Chief Executives, Vice Presidents, Chief Information Officers, Chief Technology and Procurement Officers. Over the last few years, George Osborne, Theresa May, David Cameron and Philip Hammond have all written exclusively for the Review, along with many of the nation’s most established business leaders and talented entrepreneurs.
Jim Lee said:
“We felt very honoured and privileged to represent our industry sector in this year’s Parliamentary Review. It provided us with a national platform as industry thought leaders to discuss the challenges we all face and how key policy makers can help implement the changes required.”
Grahame Kelly added:
“I met a number of interesting people from across the country and it was good to hear everyone’s perspective on life in the UK today, with Parliament and Brexit dominating discussions as you might expect.
“It was a fabulous evening at Mansion House and the surprise offer to enter “Strictly” as a wildcard couple really wasn’t expected.”
