If the ICAEW’s corporate finance faculty thought competing with Prince Charles was a tough task, it was in for a nastier shock when it discovered that its annual dinner also clashed with the Champions League final (congratulations to Liverpool).
The evening’s guest speaker, Channel Four chairman Luke Johnson, didn’t stand a chance. Johnson’s last words had barely left his lips when guests began pouring out of the dining room. TS, somewhat reluctantly leaving behind the latest in a long line of brandies, followed the exodus to the pub over the road to check the score.
TS overheard one faculty member saying he had never seen a place empty so fast, especially with all that free booze on offer. We have every sympathy for the unfortunate organisers. If you can’t lure a corporate financier with an open bar, what else you can do?
