The LMG Forum this month had several distinct topics, talent acquisition, investment and retention, London as a hub and its position in the global market place, its brand and the TOM. We are all aware a great deal of work has gone into getting the right talent, diversity and promoting the traditionally under represented sectors. Equally the London Matters report highlighted many aspects about what was needed for the survival of the market, of which we are all part, and the publicity of the work under the TOM umbrella is talked about a great deal, even some evidence of actual results.
However will the momentum continue once the remit of the practitioners is exhausted and the technologists are expected to take over?
Either way is that the gloss on unprepared wood? Surely Paul's previous piece is a priority to bring the industry kicking and screaming into the 21st C, the 48,000 people in the London Market, travelling the world and carrying with them the London Market brand.
