Arriving in Style

  I’m officially a Londoner! It’s not because I’m simply living here now. And not because I’m working from our new London Office opened in January either. It’s because, I’ve only been here a month and already I’m tutting at tourists walking slowly and simply ‘can-not-believe-it’ when I have to wait more than 4 minutes […]

Hat Trick!

Happy New Year! How was your festive holiday? It doesn’t seem it, but we’ve only been back at our desks here at R&B towers for just over a week and we’re still in celebratory mood! Why? Because we’ve had a cracker of a start to the new year! We’ve managed to score a hat trick […]

Now! That’s what I call conference. Vol 1

  How much thought do you give to what your audience is listening to, before they listen to you? “What do you mean?” as Justin Bieber recently said. I’m taking about music, of course. Before I worked at R&B Group, I was a Stage Manager in theatre and every show was always preceded with a […]

It's the way I tell 'em! (badly)
Joking aside…

Award ceremonies have their moments. Elation, disappointment, screaming, laughing, tension. Sometimes R&B are asked to stand on stage and present an award at various shows, as one of the sponsors. As project manager of the event it’s usually down to me to do the honours. It’s had its moments, but most recently I was really […]
