The Lord Mayor in her office, by Jonathan Goldberg


Mansion House

The office of the Lord Mayor is very grand with escutcheons on the wall and a golden ormolu clock under the window. Second only to the Queen in The City, she neither intimidating nor self important.    Power woman, an electricity lawyer, she wears a simple black dress with a bright red jacket and a tiny gold brooch which represents the golden coach she rode in, for her Mayoral procession in The City.

“It’s an amazingly well received role as you travel around the world, and I think the best thing about it, it’s always re-inventing itself so that it remains modern and relevant even thought it goes back to 1189”

So interesting that her themes in interview with one exception, are very much the themes of ionthecity, and christrainers in training entrepreneurs.
