‘The Best of Both Worlds’
A celebration of the great Anglo-American alliance
from the18th century to the 21st
On the 24th of May 18th century Painshill will embrace the best of both worlds by officially launching a 21st century corporate events service serving businesses based in Surrey, London and the surrounding areas.
The theme has an intentional double-meaning: the U.S. has played an important role in the Painshill story since its inception. With the 240th Independence Day anniversary around the corner, it’s the perfect time to celebrate our journey from arch enemies to allies of the highest order.
This invitation-only event will take more than 100 participants from US and UK companies on a journey celebrating the very best of both worlds in every sense. Come prepared to learn, have fun and make friends!
If weather permits, this event will be held outside in a stunning location. Whether inside or out, you can expect an evening to remember.

Caitlin’s unique style and highly structured approach to leadership were both inspirational and high impact. Her ability to break down complex situations and reframe them so that they become clear and manageable allowed me to refocus and produce genuine, observable breakthroughs beyond anything that was originally destined to happen.
Her virtual group programs are very manageable: run remotely over the internet, they take just a couple of hours per week and produce instant rewards. I would encourage anyone who is looking for a breakthrough in their careers, business or home life to get in touch with Caitlin.

The DECIDE program provided a structured framework that dramatically and positively impacted my critical thinking skills. The clarity it brought about made an enormous difference to my priorities and focus. I was able to put the toolkit to work immediately and by the end of the 10 hours had produced a real world result in excess of anything I had thought possible.
I am less of a “yes” man, and better for it. I have grown in confidence, am more assertive, and more focused on what needs to be done to produce the desired result. My manager has noticed the change.
By his own admission, Jon Bon Jovi is the world’s most boring rock star; but I can find nothing boring about a man who is real. From where I am standing, the world needs many, many more real men. What is a real man? A person who creates a ...

I’ve been told I’m a courageous person. I have made great leaps into the unknown on many occasions in my life. But when it comes to the physical world, there is no mistake: I’m a coward. I don’t like heights; fairground rides make me hurl; my deep love of ...

We’ve all found ourselves on one side or the other of the ‘Love Gap’ on more than one occasion. But what exactly is it? A phenomenon as upsetting as it is prolific, the Love Gap can be compared to an eagerly anticipated letter that the sender swears was sent, ...
Significant events have a way of locking in memories. Although I was too young to experience it directly, a quick Google of ‘where were you when Kennedy died?’ demonstrates the point. Fast forward to an event I was old enough to be impacted by - 9/11 - and the ...
I’m standing at the counter in Peet’s, ordering my latte princess style: ‘tall, single shot decaf, whole milk, 180 degrees. Thanks!’ The twenty-something barista flashes me a smile and we start to chat. I’m staring at him intently as he makes my drink. Yes, he’s hot; but that’s not ...
Over the past 15 years I’ve asked hundreds of executives three questions on the topic of networking. The response to my first question - “How important is networking to you?” - is always 'It's critical'. It’s true: if you want a seat at the table, who you know can make all the difference. I learned this lesson ...
