Season's Greetings 2016


2016! What a year it has been...
It started rather well at the Chelsea Arts Club, although Wendy broke her foot! Positive East celebrated its 25th Anniversary to include drink at the House of Lords. There were many parties with friends, thank you all: Inner Temple Gardens, Royal Ascot, Henley and other amusements and birthdays.
There was much amazement as I worked in the background with such people as Derren Brown, Brad Pitt, Eddie Redmayne and Steven Spielberg. I also worked on a great television series with the same people who did Downton Abbey and appeared in a few television adverts even if you missed me. Tune in on ITV on the 2nd January 2017 for the Halcyon.
It was physical too: I was running in an advert for the World Athletic Championship in 2017 and for Worlds Aids Day for which much was raised, just below £60K.
But there was much sadness so many dear people passing away: my first friend in London since 1987 -Jean-Pierre Laurent- on the 24th February, Dan Doherty on the 16th March, Dad on the 5th May and his brother, Uncle Robert on the 6th October. I do miss them!
I have been involved in the Hospitality, Events and Charity Sector in the field of general management, public relations and marketing for many years.
I have organised and created events, campaigns and fundraising with and for Crowned Heads of Europe, Ministers, Tycoons, CEO's, Blue Chip Companies and Celebrities.

Always discrete, persistent, consistent and with the attention to detail that makes you ask for me time again, you know that I make it happen and that I get people together. 

Locations have been varied in countries and places and included Royal Palaces to Dairies passing through hotels, theatres, museums,music-halls,planes, yachts and some unusual and even unheard of. 

Thank you to all who have helped me along the route.
2016 with a lot of Christmas Carols and dinners and I look forward to Christmas with my family and New Year's Eve with close friends overlooking the fireworks on the Victoria Embankment.

I wish you all a Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Season's Greetings and a very Happy, Healthy and Prosperous New Year 2017 when I will have lived in London for 30 years... something is brewing I guess... Bring on another 30 years!

Peace, Love & Cheers!
