Midwinter Meeting 2019

Midwinter Meeting 2019

Thursday 12 December 2019
One Great George Street, London

The BDIA is delighted to bring you a pre-Christmas antidote to the Brexit blues with its ever-popular Midwinter meeting.

This year we will be mixing a dose of the more serious with an entertaining, uplifting and heart-warming guest speaker – the Reverend Richard Coles.


In a previous incarnation the popular priest and genial co-host of Radio 4’s Saturday Live scored chart success as one half of the 1980s band, The Communards, who enjoyed UK Top 10 hits, including the biggest-selling single of 1986: Don't Leave Me This Way.

These days Richard is a broadcaster, writer and Church of England priest and known for his appearances on everything from Have I Got News For You to Would I lie To You?. He has also competed in Celebrity MasterChef, won Celebrity Mastermind, and has the distinction of performing the lowest scoring Pasodoble in the history of Strictly Come Dancing. He also makes time for the odd Songs of Praise special, appearances on QI, This Week and Chris Evans’ Radio 2 show.

So why not join us for one of the best dental industry networking events of the year, combining some useful industry sessions, an uplifting and entertaining guest speaker and a great pre-Christmas lunch at the wonderful One Great George Street, London. See you there!
