EY’s energy representatives share top table with HRH
Posted: Monday, 23 March 2015 at 8.00pm
This week myself and Kevin were invited to witness the Worshipful Company of Fuellers receive a Royal Charter from His Royal Highness the Earl of Wessex, graciously granted by Her Majesty the Queen.
The historic event at The Guildhall, London, was further celebrated by the presence of the Lord Mayor of London, City Officers and officials, energy industry leaders, other livery companies and affiliated military units.
The Fuellers’ Company, the City’s Forum on Energy, can be traced back as far as 1376 and was responsible for collection of coal dues and taxes used to rebuild much of the City of London after the Great Fire of London in 1666, including St. Paul's Cathedral.
Prior to the dinner and presentation of the Royal Charter, I was honoured to be asked to address a small group of VIPs expressing our insight on the energy landscape, followed by a more in-depth discussion with HRH the Earl of Wessex, the Lord Mayor and other key influencers.
“It is testament to what we are doing in Energy that allows us to share and continue to raise the profile of EY in such esteemed company.”
