A fantastic evening for two of our consultants at the Birmingham Law Society’s Presidents’ Dinner.
Bell Cornwall Recruitment were invited to the Annual Birmingham Law Society’s Presidents’ Dinner, by the Midlands Air Ambulance Charity. Tani Henderson and Adam Kayyali attended on behalf of the team and enjoyed a wonderful evening to celebrate the amazing work that Stephanie Perraton (as President) has done for the Birmingham legal world in 2021/2022, and to welcome Tony McDaid for his Presidency in 2022/2023.
At the beautiful Botanical Gardens venue, the evening was filled with inspiring speeches, delicious food, live music and a little bit of dancing! Tani and Adam had the pleasure of meeting the Lord Mayor of Birmingham, Councillor Maureen Cornish and enjoyed many conversations with other attendees throughout the evening.
Tony McDaid outlined his vision and goals for his Presidency, with his primary focus on access to the legal system, as well as highlighting Social Mobility, Racial Equality and Diversity. As the first non-lawyer to hold the Presidency, it is another step to further open doors into the Legal profession.
Lord Digby Jones captivated the room with an amazing speech, highlighting the growth and development of Law in Birmingham over the years. Incorporating anecdotes of his encounters which gave the audience a few giggles.
Tony has chosen to support Midlands Air Ambulance Charity and Child Brain Injury Trust during his year, with multiple fundraising and charity events to come. We hope to be able to attend and share these, to ensure that donations and awareness are sufficiently raised.
