Perk of the job

When it comes to insurance, if you’re not in EC3 then you’re nowhere. One insurance-minded US firm’s partner was recently bragging to Tulkinghorn about his networking prowess.

“On any given morning I can meet at least three clients in the coffee shop across the road,” boasted the partner. “Thank God for coffee, though. It means I don’t have to spend all my time pissed to meet clients. Just high on caffeine instead.”

Ah, the simple pleasures of life.

Which North East senior partner recently admitted that he used to manage The Undertones, Stiff Little Fingers and The Cure, but jacked it in after his dad told him to “get a real job”?
