I’ve just completed my first real test at Princedale Partners having joined earlier this year and what a journey the past 9 months have been!
Last Thursday, 15th September, Rupert, Stuart, Spencer and I hosted our annual Digital Business Leaders Cocktail Party on the stunning rooftop garden of the magical Ham Yard Hotel in Soho – which I’m very proud to have organised! It’s not like I felt the pressure at all of being instructed to lead the project of getting some of the most impossible-to-get-hold-of CEOs, Founders, Entrepreneurs, Digital Leaders across corporates, start-ups and VCs together, at the same time, in the same place…!
Narrowly dodging a thunderstorm, the evening felt like a real success. As soon as the first guests arrived at the stunning private rooftop garden, I could relax knowing that I had sent everyone to the right venue and we knew we were in for a great night. We are very proud to have hosted some of the most influential Digital Leaders from the likes of Google, Coca-Cola, Facebook, Hargreaves Lansdown, McKinsey, Boots, PhotoBox and BGF Ventures for what was an evening of catching up with old peers and sharing perspectives with new faces over cocktails, canapes, 18th-century silhouette cutting and a late September sunset.
Here are some of the photographs from the evening. I am already looking forward to next year.
