Corporate Away Day in London

When gathering important delegates from different international locations it can seem difficult to please everyone, which is why we were enlisted to work with a VIP team of corporate executives this week.

Bringing high level executives from the company’s international HQs in China, Israel, India and the USA to London for a crucial 2 day meeting, our client had the opportunity to plan a corporate away day during the trip. These teams meet annually but don’t often get much ‘down time’ to spend with each other, nor sightseeing time to enjoy all the incredible places they travel to. So we produced an afternoon that encompassed exactly that.

Collecting guests from their morning meeting we began an afternoon seeing ‘unusual London’. The Effective Event Solutions tour guides know all the frequently asked city facts, but unlike a big bus tour they have a whole lot of unusual facts and entertaining tales to show our clients London in a completely different light.

Today’s tour guide Charley led the group on a whistletop tour of St Paul’s cathedral, enchanting them with tales of Prince Charles & Princess Diana’s wedding plus a few fun facts about the whispering gallery, before we whisked them off to the river for a private lunch time cruise.

The vessel we used was once a Royal barge; the perfect cruise option for our overseas guests! Catered by Jamie Oliver’s team, they took in the sights and sounds of the river during a sumptuous three course lunch with paired wines.

After disembarking from the Royal Nore we led the tour around St Katherine Dock and the Tower of London before whisking the guests back to their hotel for a relaxed dinner.
