I attended the Presidents Dinner at the Savoy on Friday, as the guest of TDS, which was all a bit posh.
We were in the Lancaster Room which is very lovely. The only problem for me though is that the floors in the Savoy entrance hall and corridors are very polished and shiny and I am not used to wearing heels …
It was a lovely event and it was good to meet new people touch base with old friends.
For example, it was good to meet up again with James Davis of UPAD, David Cox of ARLA and of course, the team at TDS! Especially Nick, Ben and Steve. Thank you so much for inviting me!
