Photography from Kingston Chamber of Commerce monthly networking event. October’s was at Bentall’s department store in Kingston. The event’s are always well attended, despite the impression this shot might give.

Where’s the Chamber gone? Jerry Irving, CEO of Kingston Chamber of Commerce opens the meeting

As you’d expect from Bentall’s, it was an excellent breakfast, and there were a lot of really interesting people to meet, never mind the business!

Awards Ceremony Photography in Kingston

The faces change from year to year, but their unlimited energy and enthusiasm remains just the same. It was the annual Rose Youth Theatre awards ceremony, one of my regular bookings. “They love it when you play the paparazzi.” Ciaran O’Connell, the theatre’s Director of Learning and Participation told me. I stand at the end of the red carpet and snap them as they arrive at the theatre dressed up in the best outfits. “Come on, look this way! Smile for the camera!“ Great fun. Last year Cairan adapted and directed ‘Wind in Willows’ and he’s doing ‘Alice in Winterland’ for this Christmas. Members of the Youth Theatre perform alongside the professional cast, a fantastic opportunity for any kids with acting ambitions. And probably good box office once all the friends and family have bought tickets.

Portrait photographs of the new members of the board, Kingston Chamber of Commerce. Elected at the annual general meeting, it’s an awesome weight of responsibility, but they held up well, at least for their first day!

Breakfast Muffins in the Mayor’s Parlour – Business Event in Kingston

On the desk of the Mayor of Kingston upon Thames – books to makes sure he knows his place…

Kingston Chamber of Commerce’s latest networking breakfast event was in the Mayor’s Parlour in the Guildhall.  I had to go and have a look – just too tempting for a nosey person like me.  You always meet some interesting people at these well-attended events, and you find out about their many great business ideas!

New Hotel in Kingston and a Nice Place for a Networking Event

I love a nice hotel. There’s a charming, boutique establishment on a back-street in the Marias, Paris we’re very fond off. But there’s something about a big, grand hotel that’s rather wonderful. Kingston-upon-Thames is about to get one of those. The Doubletree by Hilton is opening soon, and Kingston Chamber of Commerce held a networking breakfast in the new hotel’s Sopwith Suite. Kingston’s aviation heritage has given a theme to the hotel, they’ve used the names and photographs of old Hawker aeroplanes. The purpose-built structure went up seven years ago, but was mothballed by the then owners. Under new owners, it’s been  finished it to a very high standard, king size beds, giant TVs and a carpet with a design based on an aerial view of Kingston. It’ll be a great place for a meeting over a coffee or a bite to eat. And I’m not just saying that because I got a free breakfast! And a chocolate muffin. And a pain au raisin.
