It was a great pleasure to be invited along to the Hotel du Vin in Birmingam recently.
One of Britain’s most prominent business leaders helped to boost Birmingham’s standing as a financial services centre by officially launching the Baskerville House offices of new financial recruitment consultancy Alexander Daniels.
Lord Digby Jones of Birmingham was among more than 80 guests including representatives from leading Midland companies and accountants, lawyers and other financial professionals at the firm’s launch event.
The former Trade Minister and Director-General of the CBI spoke optimistically about the economic outlook for the Midlands and applauded Alexander Daniels for bringing high quality value-added financial recruitment services to the city.
Digby gave one of his highly amusing, passionate, yet poignant trade mark speeches; full of his pride in the West Midlands and his determination to improve the region's skill sets, much criticism of our current political system, and his astonishment at how this country repaid it's greater ever leader, Winston Churchill, for saving the free world - by giving him the sack in the 1945 General Election.
The major networking occasion was hosted by experienced founder directors Jamie Rodden, Nick Pearce and Ian Mourbey, who were joined by the firm’s backer entrepreneur Andy Foote.
A highly successful launch event that was well attended by the business community and enjoyed by all - well done Alexander Daniels.
