When first class passengers go bad

#EventprofReads: Week 38

Here’s the latest #EventprofReads roundup, curated for you by The Guide to Events on Twitter and the Eventprofs London LinkedIn group. Please share with colleagues and add your comments. We hope you enjoy!  Here’s what we learned this week…

Why JP Morgan is probably going to move 75% of its UK workforce after Brexit, from The Independent:

“…If the EU determines over time that they want to start to move a lot more jobs out of London and into the EU, they can simply dictate that.”

What happens when first class passengers go bad, in The Telegraph:

“…the most famous first class outburst came from Cho Hyun-ah, who was sentenced to jail in 2015 after going nuts over, well, some nuts. Ms Cho became enraged when she was served macadamia nuts in a packet rather than on a plate.”

Why people and technology are critical to the visitor experience, in Event Industry News:

“…There has been a marked decline in customer service support, and an almost complete disconnect between registration staff on the ground and the [registration] software itself.”

How a typeface could threaten to topple the Pakistan government, according to The Guardian:

“Documents […] appear to be typed in Microsoft Calibri. But the font was only made commercially available in 2007, leading to suspicions that the documents are forged.”

And finally… Some surprising advice on how to nail a job interview, from GQ:

“…You’d hope powerful people in the position of hiring potentially powerful people would know better than to succumb to such primal reflexes.”
