In addition to our business activities, we have built up an enviable reputation for our business-cum-social events, not least regarding the Speaker Dinners we organise most of which (but not all) are Black Tie occasions.

Past speakers have included Sir Edward Heath, Sir Peter Ustinov, Enoch Powell, Nigel Farage, Ranulph Fiennes, Jeremy Paxman, Shami Chakrabarti, Pete Waterman, Esther Rantzen and Sir Trevor McDonald.
