Gathering the most respected people within the industry, from around the world, to share their experiences. Pure, unadulterated, incredible insight.
This is being kept under wraps for now, but we have been told that the first speakers are flying to London from NYC for the occasion. They also have a Savoy head bartender, the bartenders from the current Best Bar in the World, someone who opened their first bar over 30 years ago and a few people with published books. Sounds pretty good to us!
The London Sessions are about returning the importance of 'people' to hospitality. They want to talk, encourage discussion and set the precedent for a different kind of education: The kind that can shape peoples minds, careers and ultimately - their lives. London Sessions have brought together some of their favourite storytellers, who just so happen to be some of the greatest industry professionals in the world, to find out what shaped them; stories of decadence, debauchery, affluence, hitting rock bottom, war, royalty and 'Devil' the chain smoking monkey. The London Sessions will be held once a month with a different presenter, or paired presenters, each time. The sessions are recorded in front of a live studio audience (which you can be part of), and will later be made available on iTunes. Word on the street is that they are working with Callooh Callay, Blind Pig, el Nivel and City Social to make these events happen.
