The company behind our Grade II listed building’s accessible entrance lift, Sesame Access, was invited to Buckingham Palace on Thursday 14th July 2016 to meet The Queen and to celebrate winning the Queen’s Award for Enterprise in Innovation 2016.
Our congratulations go to Charlie Lyons (Chairman) and Alison Lyons (Director of Commercial Development) who attended the Reception on behalf of Sesame Access.
Members of the Royal Family attending the reception with The Queen included The Duke of Edinburgh, The Princess Royal, Princess Eugenie of York, The Duke of Gloucester, the Duke of Kent and Prince and Princess Michael of Kent.
SeeAbility’s recent fundraising dinner held within One Great George Street‘s Great Hall was a huge success; achieving a magnificent total of £90,000.
The sum will support SeeAbility’s Children in Focus Campaign which transforms eye care and vision for children with disabilities. It will fund 1,058 specialist sight tests in SeeAbility’s pilot special schools located in London, Buckinghamshire and Durham.
Seeing is believing! A good, old-fashioned site visit still has the wow-factor for me at OGGS!
Old will always be gold in event sales as while it’s important we move with the times by getting tech savvy, nothing beats face-to-face and one-to-one communication. How else can you develop a strong, trusting and positive relationship with that new client, and maintain one with a loyal customer?
People still buy people, and I find it refreshing to go back to basics. One of my favourite recurring moments is a guest’s reaction as they step into our Great Hall and can’t help but look up in awe at its exquisitely painted ceiling.
My own reaction was captured recently for an impromptu wedding photoshoot as pictured.
