Geraldine in Zurich

Having arrived late on Thursday night because of a delayed flight we found ourselves in a delightful hotel. First thing next morning I had a visit to the chief executive of a reinsurance company and, amongst other things, discussed a potential non-exec.

The view from his window over the lake was stunning. I can understand anyone wanting to work in Zurich.

I went from there to a lunch with a different client and then to interview a potential candidate.

My husband arrived for the weekend and we took a taxi from the centre of Zurich to a spa on the top of a mountain, a journey of 25 min in total. A most relaxing weekend.

Monday morning I transferred back to a city hotel and my husband returned to London. More meetings, plus, how on earth could I come to a city like Zurich without allowing some time for shopping? 3 pairs of shoes and lots of useful contacts later I returned to London on Wednesday morning.

If you need to give the bard an actuarial twist then why not come to asses the risk of deceit.

Shakespeare On Love

shakes faces

“Who will believe my verse in time to come if it were fill’d with your most high deserts?”
Passion. Tenderness. Lust. Betrayal. Loveletters and puppies. From young romance to experience and wisdom, Shakespeare runs the gamut of love. And it ain’t all Romeo and Juliet.

Come fall in love the bard way in this exploration of Shakespeare’s plays and poetry, brought about with tenderness and humour; produced by and starring GAAPS consultant Andrew Hodwitz.

“Shakespeare On Love,” is a revue of various scenes of the different type of love written about by the bard — fantastically romantic, dangerously abusive . . . even the love of a dog!
