Meet The President

Following the recent announcement of the date and venue for this year’s President’s Reception, new GGF President Mark Austin is looking forward to what promises to be a memorable and enjoyable event.

With just over three weeks until the big event, Mark Austin commented, “I look forward to making meeting my fellow Members and making my inaugural speech to bring in the start of a new decade and a new era for the GGF.”

The President’s Reception takes place on 4th February at The Landmark Hotel, Marylebone, London and starts at 3.30pm with the President’s speech starting at 4.15pm. All GGF Members are invited to this free event which is part of the Members’ benefits package.

The President’s Reception is a time for Members to meet up and to take advantage of the networking opportunities in a relaxed atmosphere over a few drinks.

In the heart of fashionable Marylebone, this deluxe hotel has a stunning glass-roofed 8-story atrium with towering palm trees and is easy for public transport with Marylebone Underground and Mainline Train Station just 50 yards away.
