Connaught Session 02

Connaught Session 02 - Our Chairman’s Dinner took place on 8 October 2014 and after another first class dining experience, a lively debate took place celebrating the role of the Chairman. Forty chairmen, eight private equity clients and our sponsors ensured the 60-seat restaurant was full and the buzz in the room was palpable. A number of high-level introductions were made as business cards and deal ideas changed hands over vintage Armagnac.

Thank you notes:

Frank Collins, Chairman, Summit Medical Group, Frontier Medical Group

"I am extremely grateful to you all for inviting me to this week's dinner. The setting, the food and the wine were exceptional but, more importantly, it allowed me the opportunity to meet and share notes with a range of fellow non-exec's, some of whom are managing a very full portfolio whilst others are the start of their non-exec, plural adventure. I also took the opportunity to get to know some PE guests whom I hadn't met previously. So, thank you for inviting me to these events. I appreciate it." 

Roger Flynn, CEO, Springboard Group Ltd

"It was really good to see you last night and thanks for inviting me to the very special dinner. I thoroughly enjoyed the company, food and discussion."

Thank you for a great evening at Hélène Darroze on Wednesday; I thoroughly enjoyed it. Both the venue and the food were splendid; your guests were interesting and the discussions were stimulating and varied. What more could one ask?

Neville Davis, Chairman, Clifford Thames, Fourth, SecureData
