The diversity of our business which reflects our industry couldn't be summed up better than by reflecting on what we've been doing this week.
Back from too many short weeks (we could all get used to 4 day weeks I'm sure, perhaps BCSC's next campaign....!?) we jumped straight into the launch of our opinion on shopping centre valuation, and the importance of encouraging greater consistency and transparency in our sector's advice to investors and lenders.
Thanks to Freshfields, and to our stellar panel of Richard Akers, David Atkins, Max Sinclair, Mark Williams and Neil Saunders for a hugely informative evening.
Not long after Freshfield's hospitality had worn off were we waking up to the salivating prospect of a debate on the application of EU procurement rules for development agreements (ok, maybe the only salivation came from the thought of bacon sandwiches provided by our hosts Nabarro, but some of get our kicks from this stuff!)
Another fabulous, and sometimes controversial, panel, gave advice and inspiration, as well as hope that some clarity will emerge shortly on the relevance of public procurement rules for retail development agreements - badly needed if we're to confidently kick start many of the UK's stalled schemes.
Whoever said variety was the spice of life was spot on.
