Diary: Currie hits hot water and then stays on the boil

Press trip horror stories are ten a penny these days, but Bite senior account manager Grant Currie manages to stand out.

Press trip horror stories are ten a penny these days, but Bite

senior account manager Grant Currie manages to stand out.



When Currie arranged a one-to-one briefing for a hi-tech journalist and

a senior Oracle executive in Paris things started going wrong right from

the start.



Currie arranged to meet the journalist at Victoria. After four

unsuccessful circuits of the concourse it dawned on him that Eurostar

leaves from Waterloo.



A quick dash across town and Currie found the journalist, only to

realise that he had left his own passport at home and had only booked

one ticket.



Some fast talking and, according to Bite, a ’bit of old fashioned

bribery’, saw Currie get himself on board without a ticket or

passport.



Feeling he was on a roll, Currie completed the meeting before retiring

for some liquid refreshment where, after confidently ordering a couple

of ’beers’ in the local lingo, he instead found himself facing two

portions of apple crumble.
