Walpole Awards for Excellence 2011

Posted in De Roemer Social on November 17, 2011 by deroemer

The De Roemer team went to Banqueting House in Whitehall for the 2011 Walpole Awards for Excellence, we arrived late but not late enough to miss the awards, eloquently introduced by Julia Carrick, CEO of Walpole, in the extraordinary and magnificent banqueting room. It was extremely well attended, in fact almost overflowing, so we stood, like naughty school children, at the back of the room by the bar where we were proffered champagne!

We had a great overview and most of the Walpole top team were there too including John Ayton with his wife, the jeweller Annoushka and Sarah Elton. We also saw lovely Nancy from Purple PR and spotted David Collins, infamous interior designer for the likes of J Sheekey, Wolseley, Madonna etc surrounded by young doppelgangers!

The awards were compared by our new national treasure, Hugh Bonneville, actor in Downton Abbey. Church’s Shoes, Mulberry, Victoria Beckham, who had a turnover of 27million last year! Hermes and Sarah Burton for Alexander McQueen were all deserving winners.

Afterwards we mingled with the crowds as we were offered cocktails and managed to have a few words with Michael Ward, our esteemed chairman and CEO of Harrods as well as the CEO of Hermes and had a word of congratulations with Lucia Van De Post who along with Hugh Bonneville won a medal of excellence….
