DIARY: Client meeting? A rickshaw is the only way to ride

Already late for a client appointment and struggling with a cumbersome box containing a brand-new Apple i-Mac, Positive Profile founder Henry Gewanter and new boy Jonathan Rush found themselves trying to hail a cab on the Embankment with no success.

Already late for a client appointment and struggling with a

cumbersome box containing a brand-new Apple i-Mac, Positive Profile

founder Henry Gewanter and new boy Jonathan Rush found themselves trying

to hail a cab on the Embankment with no success.



Desperation mounted as they neared Fleet Street with still no sign of a

ride. But fortune struck in the form of a set of squeaky wheels and a

gruff voice saying: ’Going somewhere guvs?’



Two bright yellow London rickshaws, or ’Bug-Bugs’ as they have become

known, had come to the rescue. The initial decision to send the computer

on ahead was swiftly abandoned after visions of an airborne i-Mac

spinning out of a fast-cornering rickshaw.



After journeying through Soho and Shepherd Market they duly squeaked up

to the front of the Park Lane Hilton to be greeted by a bemused doorman

attempting, to no avail, to find a door to open.



Gerwenter and Rush claim that they are the first PR folk to have arrived

at a client meeting in London by rickshaw.



They’re probably right.
