Diary: Rush shuns long lunches to prove he’s on the ball

My raquet wielding spies at the Holland Park Tennis Club tell me that a frequent visitor is Jonathan Rush, director of The Communication Group’s corporate division.

My raquet wielding spies at the Holland Park Tennis Club tell me

that a frequent visitor is Jonathan Rush, director of The Communication

Group’s corporate division.



I hear that in an effort to become more athletic Rush has stopped taking

contacts to lunch and is instead challenging them to a game of

tennis.



His most recent opponent was Peter Pallot, an award winning healthcare

writer for the Daily Telegraph and Daily Mail. Rush and Pallot go back

some time and usually chew the fat over lunch at Covent Garden eaterie

Christopher’s.



However, Rush tells me that tennis is a good opportunity to talk about

clients while working off excess pounds. He is faced with one problem

though: ’ What’s the etiquette - should you let the journalist win?’



Fortunately Rush was saved from this dilemma because, I’m told, Pallot

drubbed him two sets to love.



Rush is encouraging his corporate division colleagues to follow his

lead.



’We’re leaner and fitter than our brethren in the political division.

They’re always keen to go out swilling beer with clients,’ he says.
