On Saturday evening, Ben, Tasmeen, Nick and I, attended the Mayor of Merton's Charity Ball that took place at the All England Lawn Tennis Club in Wimbledon. The event was held to raise funds for the Mayor’s chosen charities: Shooting Star Chase and Merton Street Pastors.
Some of the WSM team take it in turns to spend their Thursday lunch times at King’s College School to help out with the Young Enterprise scheme; a programme aimed to promote entrepreneurship and business acumen in students by allowing them to form a company and develop a business project.
Bright and early yesterday morning, we made our way to the Royal Wimbledon Golf Club for our annual Budget Breakfast following the Chancellor’s announcements the previous day. We were delighted that Tim Good, from PTP Training, was able to join us as speaker for the 19th year. He manages to make the somewhat dry subject of tax, an interesting one, even early in the morning!
Last night, we celebrated Kayley’s second to last day with another successful YPG event organised by Kelly from Morrisons. A group of us from WSM headed over to All Bar One after work for the young professionals networking evening. Clear Insurance were sponsoring the event and it was great to see the team back in Wimbledon, as they have now moved to Central London.
Yesterday evening, Patricia and I were delighted to be invited to attend the launch of the Future Leaders award, an award created to promote, recognise and reward female talent. Held at the beautiful Chartered Accountants Hall, and sponsored by Capgemini, HSBC and the ICAEW, the launch was grand, sophisticated and buzzing.
