No invite here either. Perhaps I was too blunt with my feedback the last time

They'll probably invite you to one the special dinners, rather than a simple drinks reception

Some of the dinners are exceptional.

Had an invite for this but can’t attend as travelling all week - my first invite ever too so would love to know the selection criteria - think it’s more a tombola than list!

T-UK, you're joking!! Years ago used to get regular invitations to events. Since GGLFL (four years ago), nada. OK, I live in GVA but am frequently in LON, or could rearrange a trip.

From the two above that have been invited and can’t go, maybe BA has only invited people they know are away so they can enhance the GGL drinks with no-one attending

Genuinely wonder if blunt feedback gets you screened out. I have an EC1 address, reckon I am pretty close . Quite within their rights to screen of course, whether this is value based or behavioral. Out of the country so would not have worked this time and, in all honesty would rather make an FT do than this event - for as long as they have been doing this sort of thing it certainly is not influencing management behavior.

So what is this "very non descript location"? The venues used in the past have been very good.

And if you decide to go, make sure you have a couple of personal protection heavies on standby.

We wouldn’t want anything er unpleasant to happen to you, after that ‘blunt feedback’
