City of London walk and talks
Saturday 8th June proved to be a truly enjoyable day – two movies plus great discussions and a walk through the quiet streets of the City of London, with all its formidable architecture, bathed in glorious sunshine was a welcome bonus. We had great feedback all round – from walkers to audiences and participants too. What stood out? The quality and depth of the debate and discussion. City of London walk – a tour into the financial heart of darkness. A talk was given by an expert speaker at each of these locations, Bank of England, Mansion House, HSBC Corporate Banking Centre, Goldman Sachs, Guildhall and TheCityUK (advocates for UK financial services industry), to give a overview of City of London – its history, overreaching power and role in British politics and the global finance. We’ve received enthusiastic feedbacks about the talks – both from the speakers and participants!
