I went to The Marketing Society Conference yesterday and really enjoyed myself. It was held at the Royal Opera House, which was a beautiful venue. Even the continual rain pouring onto the roof of the Floral Hall could not dampen my spirits as I listened to some really interesting speeches.
The first public appearance of Blake Chandlee as Commercial Director of Facebook UK was informative in itself, but a talk on private equity by David Mansfield was also surprisingly enjoyable.
I often leave conferences feeling sleepy (no natural light) and none the wiser. Yesterday, however, I felt that I had learnt a lot. The mini apple and pear crumbles at lunchtime were also scrumptious!
