WARNING BELLS were ringing at KPMG in September for staff at the firm’s Salisbury Square office in the City after UK chairman Simon Collins accidentally set off the building’s fire alarm.
Collins, who was dashing off to a high-end dinner, felt the need to apologise after the gaffe.
In an email to staff, he explained that while “rushing to leave the building” his briefcase banged into the alarm.
“I had to walk down the stairs, wearing a white tie, carrying three bags, feeling massively guilty, and climb into my car looking as cool as possible,” Collins wrote in his email.
