28 April 2011

Please do book your place for the summer party on 15 June. We are delighted that it will be on the roof terrace at Olswang again this year and it is looking as though we will have another good turnout. Members are welcome at the AGM at 5.45pm before the party - please email sueowen@corporate-financial.com if you wish to attend the AGM and book here for the party.

Thanks to Newscast, photos from our most recent meeting when Hugo Dixon of Breaking Views was the speaker are now on the website and also the report of the meeting at which Sunday Times Business Editor Dominic O'Connell spoke.

Our next lunchtime speaker on 10 May is Tracy Corrigan Editor-in-Chief, The Wall Street Journal Europe. Book here.

Priority booking for members

In view of the heavy demand for some of the more popular lunchtime meetings, we have decided to restrict places to one guest per member. Additional guests will go on the waiting list with places released two weeks before the meetings. Members will be given priority for the visits. To avoid disappointment, I encourage you to join the group either through the CIPR or directly - please contact sueowen@corporate-financial.com for details.

Money saving and CPD

You can buy a book of vouchers for the speaker lunches and make a 10 per cent saving. You are entitled to 5 CPD points for attending the meetings too.

Members between jobs

Members between jobs can attend meetings free of charge - it is a great way of networking and keeping in touch and members have found jobs though the group network.
