HH’s Annual Dinner28-11-2023
The Hawkins Hatton annual dinner, which has been held at Weston Park for the last 14 years, has become a firm fixture in the regional professional service sector and client calendars alike.
The 2023 F1 Dinner hosted by HH over two consecutive weeks in November did not disappoint in any way. The theme put a new spin on the event and instead of creating debate around business matters and economic trends, it drew on comparisons between the F1 and HH to demonstrate the power of being niche.
The F1 comprises of supercars which do not seek to compete with conventional vehicles which are more readily available. Moreover notwithstanding a supercar may have similar horsepower as a heavy goods vehicle, the difference is a supercar’s ability to accelerate, decelerate and navigate. This is analogous of HH in the legal sector in that HH is niche and nimble. Continuing with this analogy, a supercar needs:
- A strong chassis – in the same way business clients, when purchasing or exiting a business, need strong, clear advice to give certainty and HH’s corporate department provides this in an abundance.
- An engine – this is equivalent to a business’ power plant being its commercial property, which enables a business to expand, and HH supports this growth through its real estate department, leaving no stone unturned.
- Fuel – to drive the engine and turn the wheels. Commercial finance fuels a business and HH’s banking and finance team efficiently deliver the cash back into businesses from banks and other lenders.
In a race, there are times when others break the rules and drivers turn to the stewards, when rules are broken in business, our clients turn to the HH dispute resolution department to right the wrongs.
HH’s explosive, electrifying and polished dinners ended with guests commenting on the unique style of corporate gifts, which caught the essence and spirit of the evening being HH branded engine oil, given HH provides its clients’ business engines with F1 treatment to keep them running at optimum efficiency.
HH’s Skyfall Dinner November 202225-11-2022
We have been entertaining clients for the last 15 years at Weston Park and this has turned into one of the most prestigious business events in the West Midlands business calendar. In that time, we have worked incredibly hard in creating a name and reputation which cannot be surpassed by any other niche corporate practice outside of London. We are remarkably earnest which can be seen through our hard work during difficult times to maintain relevance and to continue to evolve in order to meet the exacting standards set for our clients, who have grown to be close friends, sticking by HH through thick and thin. This was reinforced at our two latest events themed Skyfall, during which we extracted iconic characteristics of James Bond, such as commitment, loyalty and diligence, and compared these to the characteristics of our guests in attendance who were, as contemporaries, more than a match for Scaramanga. You do not need a “Golden Gun”, you just need dedicated people who will fight your corner. Not to be fooled by the Bond-esque theme as the dinners were not all about Ian Flemming, the creator of the iconic 007, but also focused on the topic of bonds, more specifically how these brought an end to the last Chancellor of the Exchequer Kwasi Kwarteng and his Prime Minister, Liz Truss. This was a prelude to discussions on QE (Quantative Easing) and QT (Quantative Tightening) and how powerful the bond market can be in eliminating Chancellors and Prime Ministers alike. “You all share a likeness to James Bond” said Colin Rodrigues, our Dispute Resolution partner Harminder Sandhu agreed enthusiastically, both fondly sharing memories of friends, old and new. The evening ended on a high for both clients and professional advisers, who came to celebrate not just HH’s achievements, but to revel in how they have helped UK PLC keep the wheels of business turning.
