South Wales Dinner

On the 13th May the IET South Wales networks held their Prestige Dinner and raised money for IET Connect.

Rhys Phillips tells us how the event went.

The 2014 IET South Wales Prestige Dinner was yet another success for the area. With 80 members, guests and invited VIPs attending, the attendees were first treated to a sparkling drinks reception accompanied by jazz trio, Pete Phillips’ Motley Groove.

After sitting down for a first class three course dinner, we enjoyed an entertaining speech from TV presenter and comedian Simon Watt over coffee. Simon talked about his time working with animals whilst filming nature documentaries as well as his latest initiative, the Ugly Animal Preservation Society. This was followed by a vote of thanks from IET Vice President Alan Watts, who reminded us of what the IET does for us before appealing for donations to IET Connect as part of the raffle. The event raised £449.20 for the Benevolent Fund.
