City Networking OAs in the City was kindly supported by Stephen Barber (66 – 73) and his team at The Pictet Group at their London Wall offices. With stunning views across the city Stephen gave the assembled 86 OAs a few words about Dulwich and shared some mementos including lunch tickets from 1973, his school tie, a copy of ‘The Voice’ a school magazine which had a very limited run and the constitution of the Christian Union. With background as an investment manager, Stephen Barber is Equity Partner of Pictet and Head of Group Corporate Communications. In 2008, Stephen established and launched the Prix Pictet, a major new global photography prize. The theme for the seventh cycle of the Prix Pictet is Space - a theme that offers a wide range of creative possibilities and a strong set of connections to the Prix Pictet’s overriding theme of sustainability. We were treated to a special presentation of the shortlist for Space on the evening.

Also present were Anne Ewing, wife David Ewing OA (50-59), and Vicki Morris, wife of Arthur Morris OA (52-59).

He sent us away already looking forward to a return to the Great Hall in 2017. Remembrance and Past President’s Lunch
