Two Citywealth Awards in so many days

The last week has been a very busy time here at Citywealth.
On Wednesday 21st January it was the fourth IFC Awards, hosted by the very witty Frances Edmonds, bestselling author and wife of former English cricketer Phil Edmonds and where twenty-six awards were handed out to the winners and runners up. A kilted bagpiper gave the evening a special Scottish flavour in celebration of Burns Night and a very jolly and joyous time was had by all.

The following evening, Thursday 22nd January, was the time for the first Power Women Awards, hosted by Dame Esther Rantzen DBE who received a standing ovation. She gave out thirteen Gold, Silver and Bronze Awards to women and companies that excel at promoting female leadership, entrepreneurship and mentorship in the wealth management sector. As Burns Night was still a couple of days away, a bagpiper was again present to celebrate the event, and together with the hosts downed a glass of whiskey to the 'lassies' according to Scottish tradition.
