The weather in London was glorious in June and it proved to be a hot month for the team, both in and out of the office.
Attending three China focussed events, all featuring top-tier business people and academics – the 2nd UK-China Business Leaders Summit, the Sinio-European Entrepreneurs Summit and our client CKGSB’s CKGSB-CBBC BCI Event – provided up to the minute insight and analysis on the business conditions in China and their impact on the UK and Europe (audience questions about the potential impact of the upcoming Brexit vote were understandably rife!).
The CKGSB event was a particular highlight, not only because the Ritz is a fantastic venue but because Professor Li Wei’s Business Conditions Index was deemed fascinating by all – the event audience and the journalists at the three broadcast opportunities we set up for him: CNBC (World Markets Live), BBC Radio 4 (The Today programme) and BBC Radio 5 Live (Wake Up to Money).
We then turned our focus to New Zealand client, Child Labor Free, and headed for East London’s Great Eastern Street to oversee a photo-call at their eye-catching graffiti art installation to raise awareness of the “say no to #allworknoplay” campaign we helped them devise. On World Day Against Child Labour (Sunday 12 June), fair-trade t-shirts were our uniform as the team morphed into “Apprentice” contestants battling to sell as many charity t-shirts as possible in Spitafields market!
It was also a busy time for our summer intern, who, among other things got a taste for event management through supporting the practical panel session ‘How to Successfully Launch and Grow In The UK’ which we co-hosted at UBM with our friends at JMB Partnership and UKTI for this year’s London Technology Week.
Stay tuned for more summer updates!
