Stone me! What about virtual?

Susan Ross represented Pentacle at the launch of The Stone Club. Face-to-face and 'touchspace' it may be but Carol Stone has managed to connect her 30,000 friends to begin a journey of networking at an amazing scale.

Winds of Change Blow Through City For The First Time

In collaboration with our partners Duke Corporate Education, Pentacle's Eddie Obeng has been working with key members of the Finance Function of HSBC in a Finance Academy course in Chicago. The Academy sponsored by Ian Mackay and led by Peter Mansell has been working to develop leaders in one of the worlds strongest banks to take on the challenges of our New World.

Having rashly sworn not to go to the USA whilst the the USA maintained Guantanamo Bay as a detention centre, this trip was the First that Professor Eddie Obeng has made to the US for a very long time. Let's hope that the concepts, tools and ideas he shared don't just blow through but stick in the city!
