We recently held a seminar at 1 Great George Street as the central London location was more convenient for our clients.
After all, that is why we have a headquarters in Whitehall isn't it?
The facilities were as good as I have seen anywhere. When we arrived to set up, there was a pot of excellent coffee on a side table. A computer 'guru' was on hand in case our computer would not talk to the ICE's projector. Needless to say, the computer was suitably intimidated and behaved perfectly.
At each seat there was a pad of paper and a natty pen with a body made from recycled materials and an ingenious wooden clip. The workshop went well and our client was impressed.
On the train home I looked more carefully at my souvenir pen. On the side in gold it had a nice little logo and the words 'One Great George Street' in an attractive modern sans serif typeface.
Very nice, but why didn't it say 'Institution of Civil Engineers'?
