I am sure that you all enjoyed the January luncheon as much as I did. Once again I was fascinated by the stories from Eddie Neylon, which had us all on the edge of our seats with some sad and amazing adventures. Luckily Eddie still has many more tales left to tell, so I hope that we are able to entice him back next year.
Our speaker at the February Luncheon will be our very own Darren Tibble from DC Employment. I have seen Darren speak many times and he has never failed to make employment law interesting and funny.
Employment law is something that all our members may become involved in at some point or another, so what better way to keep up to date than over a delicious meal and fantastic wine at the Chewton Glen, amongst great company.
As you may know Tricia and Stuart Percival will not be joining us for the February luncheon as they are enjoying a well deserved holiday. I hope that they have a fabulous time and we look forward to hearing all about their adventures at the March luncheon.
I look forward to seeing you all in February.
February’s Guest is Darren Tibble
