The Investigo Compliance team attended the 9th annual Thomson Reuters Compliance awards yesterday. These awards are the Compliance social event of the year when the great and good within the Compliance world put on their glad-rags to pay homage to those recognised as being outstanding in their respective fields of expertise. The event was held at the Sheraton Park Lane hotel right in the heart of glittering Mayfair.
Helen Walker and Mark Lawrence assembled some of the key decision makers in the City to join them on their table. The clients were all outstanding professionals working in a number of different sectors including investment banking, brokerage and securities trading. Some of the companies represented included Morgan Stanley, GFI, Societe Generale and Bank of America.
We enjoyed networking at the champagne reception and then had a fabulous 3 course meal with flowing wine and conversation. Near the end of the evening, we were all treated to the biting wit of comedian Jimmy Carr. This was the highlight of the evening - thankfully we were on table 27 away from the stage so we managed to avoid any jibes and insults from Jimmy.
The evening came to a close with more networking and partying into the early hours. In addition to all the fun we had, we also managed to massively increase our network of potential clients and candidates - we are looking at a strong start to 2014
We are already counting down to next year’s event - hopefully by then Mark Lawrence will have learnt to tie his own bow tie....
