Previous events and our guests

Collinson Grant regularly hosts dinners for clients and leading decision makers to share ideas. These small, invitation only, events are a chance to swap views in a relaxed and private atmosphere at the Royal Automobile Club in Pall Mall, London. Topics are wide-ranging from developments in different sectors, to discussing changing legislation and current economic trends. We have had many stimulating, informal evenings since our first dinner was held way back in 2005.
