A business lunch and a burial?

Yesterday, I had the opportunity to meet an undertaker.

Be reassured, it was not #coronavirus related.

Rachel Davenport from Henri de Borniol was our guest speaker at the monthly #businesslunch .

I don’t have much experience with death and burial.

And, of course, I did not know anything about the job of an undertaker. Rachel changed that.

She explained that her main job is to support the families and provide solutions and an administrative peace of mind. Which I would think appreciable in time of grief.

Of course she also explained that as Henri de Bonriol is an upscale company for high-profile clients she managed funerals for princes, presidents and high-profile company’s CEO.

During this lunch I also had lively conversation with the attendees.

Were present Simon Barnes, Jonathan Bradshaw, Christian Carroll, Joanna Farah, Lucy Hawkes, Nathalie Kennedy, Chris Lane, Colin Leisk, Jeremy Lister, Simon Pennington and Thibault Vanham ◆ Bessé.

Thanks to Jonathan C. Cooper for setting this up.

And, of course, many thanks to our sponsors Franco-British Chamber of Commerce & Industry, British Council (I saw your ad in the subway yesterday, nicely done), Department for International Trade, IOD, Stnadrd Athletic Club and The Spectrum IFA Group.
