Welcoming LV= back to the Gherkin - 30th January 2014

It is fantastic to see LV= back at The Gherkin, for an evening event this time hosted by Victoria Wentworth. I soon see that everyone is really relaxed and an anecdote based, entertaining speech is what is needed - big smiles and lots of laughter tell me I’ve got it right.

Heidi Lees-Bell reminds me that when we last met in November she recommend I put a film of speaking at all the different events on my website – I have to admit it’s still on the To Do List! Thanks Heidi, it makes perfect sense - I make a mental note to move it a few places up the list.

 

LV= Charities Lunch November 15th 2013

LV= recently gave some of their Advisers the opportunity to nominate their favourite charity to receive a £1,000 donation. To acknowledge the brilliant work done by all the charities and to say thank you they got everyone together at the Gherkin as the guests of James Bilton for a champagne buffet lunch and the presentation of the donations. Each charity representative and their nominees were invited to bring a guest and we all enjoyed hearing from each charity about their work. It was a wonderful and very moving afternoon and I was delighted to be able to add to the guests’ enjoyment with stories about the building, escorting each charity up to the very top for the presentation of their giant cheques by Justin Harper was very special. LV= also presented everyone with a copy of The Gherkin Guide as a memento of their day.

The charities were Niamh’s Next Step; Macmillian Cancer Support; St.Peter’s Hospice; Cancer Research UK and Richmond Fellowship.
