We were blessed with wonderful weather for September’s business lunch, allowing all 32 of us to dine on the terrace at O’Sullivans. Our guest speaker was Kate Keenan, author and founder of Pocket Manager Books, a series of self-help books for busy people who want to manage themselves, their time and their businesses better. For more information on Kate’s books whose titles include “Manage Yourself”, “Handle Stress”, “Run Meetings”, “Motivate”, “Understand People” and “Assert Yourself”, visit her website at www.kate-keenan.com
We were simultaneously educated and entertained by Robert J Oliver, our guest speaker from Mondream Real Estate Asset Management, at the June lunch. Robert (or Bob as he has become known to us) is a loyal member of the Paris Business Lunch and can be counted on to attend every time he is here in Paris.
Bob’s task was to explain to us “What is Real Estate Asset Management” in simple terms and in five minutes! He did it!! To summarise his presentation in one line;
“If someone gave you Rockefeller Center, Canary Wharf, or La Defense as a gift you would probably wonder what to do with it. Essentially, you call me, give me the keys and go enjoy your life. I’ll send you reports and distribution checks on a timely basis”.

Thank you to everyone who came along! We had 33 attendees and again, we all enjoyed a wonderful lunch basking in the sunshine on the terrace at O’Sullivan’s.
Our next lunch is Wednesday 8th July and our guest speaker is Richard Brown from Tilney Bestinvest who is travelling over from London just for this event. Don’t forget to RSVP early.
