We offer our members numerous opportunities to meet and network with other members and guests by organising events. Members and their guests meet for lunch, dinner or an evening business forum throughout the year. A distinguished and authoritative person from the oil industry, entertainment, politics or sports is invited to speak at such meetings, which allow members and guests to catch up with former colleagues and business associates in a sociable environment, and to form new contacts.
Our two major annual events are a Sportspersons Lunch and a Christmas Lunch. For our Christmas Lunch, which is usually held in the Connaught Rooms in Holborn, London, we invite an eminent celebrity from the entertainments industry as speaker. Our Sportspersons Lunch, held in the month of May, has recently been held in a private suite at The Oval (home of Surrey CCC) where a speaker from the field of sport will entertain members and their guests. After lunch, a first class game of cricket can be enjoyed from especially reserved seats. There is also a series of evening business forums with a speaker from the oil or allied industry.
