After everyone was welcomed with a glass of wine, Head of Tax and Fiscal Policy with the CBI, Richard Woolhouse got the evening off to a spectacular start. Discussing the economic outlook for 2012 and the challenges involved for businesses, everyone was treated to an invaluable insight into what the forthcoming year has in store.

Following this, Olympic gold medallist Zac Purchase gave an inspirational speech about what it’s like to be one of the most talented athletes in Britain. Having been appointed Member of the Order of the British Empire (MBE) in recognition to his services to sport, Zac reminisced about his success in Beijing, his first ever Olympic games and also detailed the everyday challenges and pressures that he faces.

The guest speakers were nicely rounded off by Steve Rigby who leads Grant Thornton’s Performance Improvement Team. Experienced in working with clients of all sizes across a wide range of sectors, Steve was able to provide a detailed account into what he does and how this can help businesses to improve.

The rest of the evening provided everyone with the opportunity to network with a host of our clients whilst enjoying wine and canapés. The feedback received has been fantastic so thank you to all who attended and we hope to see you there again next year.
