Corporate event at The NED

The NED  Such a cool place.... I had been DJing in Ibiza at the beginning of the week, so it was nice to have such a prestigious London corporate gig to come back to. The Client was a city firm celebrating its  8th birthday by inviting 150 brokers to an evening buffet and free bar.
