Speedo brand president attracts over 100 guests at Nottingham City Business Club Lunch

David, who has been with the company for twenty years, spoke about the journey of Speedo – the world’s leading swim brand – and the challenges and benefits of being global.

Nic Elliott, president of the Nottingham City Business Club, said: “It was great to see so many members and guests at the lunch.  David was clearly a popular speaker with lots of people keen to find out about the Speedo story and it’s great that our efforts to grow the membership of the club are paying off.  We’re very grateful to David for joining us.”

“It was great to meet such a wide variety of local business people and the conversation over lunch was very stimulating,” said David Robinson.” I see why people come and the lunches are so popular.”

The Nottingham City Business Club has a packed calendar of great guest speakers at its monthly lunches throughout the rest of the year. Steve Thomas, managing director of strategic development at Experian PLC will speak at the lunch on 16 October and Karen Bowes, Vice-President of International HR at Capital One on 13 November.

There will be a special guest speaker at the club’s Christmas event on 11 December.  This will be Edwina Currie.
