Corporate board dinner
In January 2013, the team at Oliver Myles Events were tasked with organising a board dinner and exclusive event – with just six hours’ notice!
Ordinarily, an event for 15 board members who were flying in from countries such as India and America, months of planning would be undertaken to ensure the activities planned for the leaders of this leading organisation were managed to the finest detail. However, when the call came in stating the objective was a “uniquely British event with dinner afterwards”, the team at OME leapt into action.
“With over 60 years’ expertise, the knowledge and experience amassed of what makes an event unique and the places that will exceed the objective, Oliver Myles Events proved to be the people to turn too.”
In spite of the time challenge presented, Oliver Myles still had time to gather ideas, prices and availability for three different “events” and three different gastronomic experiences.
The experience selected by the client was:
- Private tour of the Crown Jewels at the Tower of London. As uniquely British as fish and chips, “Last night of the Proms” and Yorkshire Pudding, this event was secured so the 15 board members could view the Jewels in privacy and a closeness that many others would never experience. Escorted by Yeoman Warders, the board members experienced first-hand understanding of the story and the intimacy behind the jewels and their importance to the United Kingdom.
- At the conclusion of the tour, the guests were escorted by chauffeured executive travel to the celebrated Pont de La Tour restaurant, overlooking the River Thames and Tower Bridge in all its moonlit glory.
- At this celebrated eating establishment, the guests dined on Tian of Dorset Crab, Roasted Rack of Lamb and drank sumptuous accompanying wines that accompanied their evening perfectly.
“Oliver Myles will be organising future board dinners and similar events. Their skill and expertise is a great reassurance”.
The feedback from our client was absolutely first-class. In spite of the evident time pressure, Oliver Myles Events offered a number of options when the client had tried and couldn’t quite find the right blend of event to match the status of the guests present.
As the client explained: “Mel and Alan at Oliver Myles quickly understood the tricky situation we were in. We had a specific brief and the range of options that came back within the hour, ensured we could quickly make a decision. The event was executed with precision and our guests loved the seeing the iconic Crown Jewels and then dining at the fabulous Pont de la Tour. I was disappointed I couldn’t fit in all my dessert! Oliver Myles will be organising future board dinners and similar events. Their skill and expertise is a great reassurance.”

If we organised this event in six hours, what could we do, with a longer time scale! Your event, your experience. To discuss the experience you want – whatever it might be – please call Alan or Mel at Oliver Myles on 01442 345031 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
