ICG Summer Party – A review
The Summer party was held in The Orangery at the Prince of Wales Feathers – old friendships were renewed, new friends were made, lots of bubbly and capapes were enjoyed. Ian Redpath of Decision Tracker reflects on his experience of the night.
The ICG Summer Party 2016 landed at the Prince of Wales Feathers Pub in London on a warm summer evening in mid July – drawing a crowd of ICGers to drink and make merry. Starting at 6.30 and still going strong at 10.30 – I’m sure there were many still talking and catching up when last orders were called.
This was my second time I’d been to an ICG party so was expecting food for both the body and the mind. My expectations were met. The food was great and the free wine and beer definitely kept the conversation lively. A sample of topics ranged from: why we’d entered the research industry, uncensored Brexit rants, teenagers and their phones to nudist beaches. We’re evidently quite a liberated group ;).
As with my previous experience of the ICG events – it was very easy to talk to everyone, and people are keen to learn about one another. For a largely virtual community the parties are a great opportunity to put faces to names, start to appreciate the depth and breadth of experience we have on tap and also touch base on how people’s work is developing.
The evening also marked Summit Studios 18th birthday! Happy Birthday Summit – and was celebrated with an impressive big black cake (with red velvet filling) – Mary Berry would have been proud.
excellent evening – a huge thanks to Lucie and everyone for organising – I’ll see you at the next event!
