Tulkinghorn found himself trying to keep track of how many times speakers managed to work in the words ‘Monte Carlo’ or ‘Monaco’ into their seminars. He lost count, but picked out some interesting examples. Phillips’ Mike Morris, speaking on project management, couldn’t resist referring to the “Monte Carlo method” of simulating algorithms, which had Tulkinghorn scratching his head.
Later on Simmons & Simmons’ Louise Delahunty talked about gambling in relation to money laundering. Not that this stopped delegates from spending some free time in Le Casino around the corner from the hotel, where several lawyers came back with sizeable winnings. Tulkinghorn won’t mention the losers.
