Members of the Central London Branch look forward each month to a variety of different venues for networking events.
The venues have ranged from Embassies to Film Studios and on Monday 20th February our host was La Porte des Indes, a superb Indian restaurant located in the West End of London close to Marble Arch Station.
We were greeted by Sherin Alexander, Executive Director, and her staff who ushered into an area of the restaurant cleared especially for the IOD, adjacent to a flowing waterfall, for welcome drinks and canapés.
After a short presentation by Sherin ,who gave us the history of the venue and the reasons why an Indian Restaurant has a French name, we were treated to a hot buffet of exceptional quality and the hospitality ( wine, beer and soft drinks ) which continued until our scheduled finishing time of 8.30pm. Needless to say members were not in a hurry to leave and many stayed for a further hour or so, being made to feel most welcome throughout.
Much networking was done and business cards were changing hands on a regular basis. Members were leaving with smiles on their faces, always a good sign of a successful Central Branch event.
La Porte des Indes have kindly offered our IoD members a 15% discount at their restaurant until the 30th April 2017. Please ensure you quote IoD as a reference when booking and present the voucher below.
