Speed is inviting former employees back for drinks in what is turning into an annual school reunion-style event. It’ll be on Tuesday, 14 June.
When I say event, this is not something eagerly awaited as a must-do on the social calendar. The people at Henley and Badminton do not fear loss of market share. This is more of a Pinot Grigio, Shiraz, Becks and Pringles affair, with the possibility of a sausage roll.
We did this last year, inviting people who have worked over the years for our predecessor agencies BMA, Custard PR, Lighthouse, Mantra and Rainier PR. See, I did that in alphabetical order to avoid any politics.
We look forward to seeing as many people here as possible. Invitations will go out soon. It’ll be a few drinks in the Leicester Square office from about 6.30pm, a chance to catch up with people and laugh at how old they look now, and a raw gossip if the last one was anything to go by.
