Catching up with Paul Sinha at the CISI South East branch annual dinner 2017

After-dinner speaker Paul Sinha, comedian and quizmaster on ITV's The Chase, kept an audience of over 65 entertained at the event, held on 12 October 2017 at The Spa Hotel, Tunbridge Wells

Paul shared some interesting insights into the challenges he has faced being an openly gay, Asian general practitioner turned comedian, and also how his fame from The Chase has impacted his life.

Guests at the event contributed over £990, excluding gift aid, in aid of the Hospice in the Weald, a charity that strives to ensure that the community it serves has access to compassionate, individualised, holistic and supportive care for all patients with terminal illness, their families, and carers. It is firmly rooted in the communities of West Kent and north east Sussex.

CISI South East branch president Katie Presland, Chartered FCSI, said: "We were delighted the evening was once again such a success, bringing the local investment community together."

Some of the top table guests were: Victoria Ansell, former president, Kent Law Society; Chris Morris ACSI, CISI senior client relationship manager; Judi Horwood, Deputy Mayoress of Tunbridge Wells; Cllr. Len Horwood, Deputy Mayor of Tunbridge Wells; James Stockdale, CISI global director of learning; and Chris Thomas, Ambassador, Hospice in the Weald.

The sponsors for this event were Blackrock, First Trust Global Portfolios, and Franklin Templeton, without whom it would not have been possible. If you would like to support future dinners, please contact
