Smart Experiences Attend Rugby Business Event
Thu 26 May 2016
Smart Experiences enjoyed a great night with England’s Grand Slam winning captain, Dylan Hartley at Brasserie Blanc in London recently.
England’s Grand Slam winning captain, Dylan Hartley, pulled no punches during his startlingly honest and often hilarious turn at Brasserie Blanc in London last night.
The evening raised vital funds for our Life After Rugby programme and started with a cocktail reception that helped to get everyone in the mood for an unusually fun evening of socialising and rugby.
Once the meal was over, John Inverdale interviewed Dylan Hartley, who looked very lean after two months of recovery from a nasty concussion in England’s game against France.
Dylan talked us through everything from how a new ‘business haircut’ helped him seal the captaincy deal with Eddie Jones and the aforementioned coach’s innovative methods to how international front-row forwards now warm up for games by trying to stretch each other’s skin tight shirts.
When Dylan started fielding questions from members, it became clear that the cocktails may have been a little too strong when someone asked, “were you as amazed as I was when you were made captain?”.
Dylan handled it with great humour and carried on in that vein to give an insightful, self-effacing and incredibly entertaining turn, deftly aided by John Inverdale.
