Fishburn Hedges director Sue Stapely’s effervescence is always stirring
but I hear it was almost too much for a firm of City lawyers which
recently experienced one of her memorable training sessions.
One of the practice’s partners writes to Stapely: ‘Thank you so much for
spending time with us...It was stimulating, challenging and [a certain
partner] is, on the whole, as well as can be expected. The men in white
coats are optimistic that he will be available to sign letters and file
his post within a few days and, perhaps soon after that, he may be able
to attend meetings and resume work...If you can bear to remain involved,
then we will let you know when we next need some serious disruption.’
Oh, to have been a fly on the wall.
