Our very own Grosvenor Gent, Mark Wright, takes you through all the ways you can be extra prepared next time you go to a meeting…

According to Mark, it’s about a lot more than just research. Here are some of Mark’s top tips:
Arrive early. This way you’ll have plenty of time to run through all the key points you need to touch on in the meeting.
Turn off your phone and switch off the outside world. You need to be focussed and full of confidence.
Mentally prepare yourself. Don’t get nervous or worrying about what might happen, focus on yourself and keeping your head clear.
Think about the other person. Remember – they’re meeting you for the first time too, so put yourself in their shoes and speak the way you’d like to be spoken to.
So, what are your rules for being a true gentleman in the modern day? Do you have any extra tips and tricks for showing your gentlemanly prowess? We’d love to hear from you!

The Grosvenor Gent: Table Etiquette

Think you know what it takes to be a gent at the poker table?

Our very own Grosvenor Gent, Mark Wright, takes you through what he considers to be top table etiquette in a casino setting…

To uphold your gentlemanly persona in the casino, there are a few ways you can show ‘good practice’ at the table:
Try not to put your drink on the betting table. Mixing business with pleasure so openly should generally be avoided.
Money exchanges should take place on the table, and not by hand. Your dealer will expect this, so it’s always good to do things by the book.
Celebrate with the people around you. If you come into a lot of money, or receive a great hand, get the drinks in, tip the dealer, show the casino you’re here for a good time and not a long time.

Why England Must Show No Mercy

Six months ago many of us would have shuffled across the road, awkwardly avoiding eye contact if an England cricketer walked towards us on the street.

Performances had been so abysmal it was best for all concerned to pretend we didn’t know who they were.
