Evening Standard 1000 most influential Londoners

I wasn’t going to blog about this because I thought that it would appear rather narcissistic, but what the hell, I’ve got a blog and that’s pretty narcissistic anyway!

I have been included in the Evening Standard’s list of the 1,000 most influential people in London. Luckily the list isn’t fully numerical because if it were I have little doubt at which end I would find myself. Still it was nice to be invited to the candle lit soirée that ES put on and mingle with a lot of people that I mingle with at work. But with champagne.
Although I didn’t stay long (I was a guest at the National Business Awards later that evening) and didn’t mix as widely as I would have liked, I did bump into a few new faces who turned out to be very interesting particularly Simon Fletcher, Livingstone’s former Chief of Staff, and Shami Chakrabarti.
I can’t pretend I’m not chuffed to be on the list and I’m more than happy with the write up that I got:

James Cleverly – Youth ambassador
Ambitious and bright, the keen triathlete manages to bridge the gap between parties, the old school Tory assembly members and those running City Hall. Tipped for a future front bench role in Parliament.

But you know what they say, “don’t believe everything you read in the press”.

  1. Just goes to show a Colfe's education is not as much of a handicap as one would have thought. Well done.
