There is great excitement in the Harris household this weekend, as after six months of planning, meetings and drafting with a few heated discussions on the way, and the very hard work of daughter Claudine who has endured her father ‘s impatience stoically ,our new company London Personally has been launched and we now have a live website www.londonpersonally.co.uk
London Personally will provide tailor made walks around London for both private clients and for businesses looking for new ways of marketing. It is entirely focused on what the client wants from their walk. No meeting at a pre arranged tube station for a walk of a defined length and without knowing whether you are in a group of 30 or 50. You choose the date and time and where the walk starts and ends. You decide whether the walk is themed or needs to incorporate buildings or districts that relate to your own personal story or your business.
Not that we expect you to do it all yourselves. London Personally always have plenty of suggestions and ideas for your perfect Walk.
Stan will lead all the walks bringing his love and passion for all things London to provide the unique experience which is London Personally – a combination of stories of the personalities and buildings on your chosen Walk with just the right amount of facts and figures to provide an entertaining and refreshingly new way to see the worlds number one city.
London Personally came about as a result of a number of factors. The many kind remarks from many friends from our walking group MEWS (Minchenden Estate Walking Society) which is about to embark on its’ eighth year and from friends and business colleagues who have joined me on the Lynton House Walks and suggested that I ought to turn this enthusiasm and hobby into a business. This encouragement gave me the confidence to suggest to my family last October that we start London Personally.
Second, I have always somewhat envied those relatively few individuals who are lucky enough to earn their living from what they love most and my love of London has been with me ever since I was in shorts half a century and more ago. I am a London addict! I can’t get enough of it as my long suffering wife , would confirm as every time we are in town I can’t help but stop and pop down alleys and lanes always exploring and taking countless photos.
And then there was THAT birthday when I suddenly thought if I don’t give it a try now I’ll never know. This potent mix of converging thoughts and ideas has meant that I was destined to do something around walks in London and London Personally is the result.
London Personally believes it has something refreshing and new to offer in what is, after all a crowded marketplace. Our passion for London, our professional approach and our unique way of making sure that the Walk is very much your own all add up to a great way to entertain friends , market your business or raise money for a good cause.
I’ll continue to blog and I have no intention of stopping the MEWS WALKS or the Lynton House Walks as I get such a kick out of them. So give London Personally an opportunity to let us show off London for you by visiting our website. Oh yes -just in case you’ve forgotten you can find London personally at www.londonpersonally.co.uk or by e-mailing us on firstname.lastname@example.org.
