Headhunters staked out the best area to intercept potential prey emerging from the leafy borders. Lady Bottomley of Odgers Berndtson barely shifted from her spot on main avenue all evening.
Gentlemanly HSBC chairman Stephen Green was constantly waylaid by those curious about his tenure. Another future job market candidate, Lloyds Banking boss Eric Daniels , spent little time at the bank stand in the pavilion.
RBS counterpart Stephen Hester , similarly eschewed the RBS stand for bank clients, wandering around with his jacket off. The proud owner of Broughton Grange estate, complete with arboretum, appeared happy amid the greenery.
Lloyds' headhunter Jan Hall chatted to Lord Burns , a former director of another client, M&S.
A prospective candidate for Mr Daniels' Lloyds job, Naguib Kheraj, was pleased to see his former colleagues from Barclays, where he used to be finance director. There were hugs from Barclays Capital president Bob Diamond . Standard Chartered boss Peter Sands and author wife Betsy Tobin remarked on the unusually balmy weather compared with previous years' frostbite conditions.
