Hardeep Is Your Quiz?

Broadcaster and comedian Hardeep Singh Kohli was the quizmaster for this year's Four Colman Getty English PEN Quiz, now in its 11th year and one of the highlights of the pre-Christmas season. The questions were devised by our very own Marcus Berkmann, with further Brain Men back-up running the big electronic scoreboard.

240 journalists, writers, authors, publishers and PR people enjoyed a fantastic dinner six spectacular rounds at The Royal Institute of British Architects in Portland Place, culminating in one of the tightest results we've had. The Daily Telegraph and The Times drew for first place, and drew again on the tie-break! A second tie-break was called into play, with Education Secretary Michael Gove, representing The Times, pipping the opposition to the answer.

RSA Quiz Lands Safely At Heathrow

Brain Man Chris Pollikett was our Quizmaster at Heathrow's Park Inn Hotel last week for the RSA 2012 Quiz, attended by over 100 people. In a very successful departure from our usual rounds format, we fired off 30 quiztacular questions over 30 minutes, all accompanied by music, photos, animations and film clips.

After the scores were tallied, Two Bottles of Champagne were the winning team, with 50 Shades of Grey Matter (great name!) runners-up and Old Blokes and a Lady in third place. 'Feedback from the event has been incredibly positive so thank you once again for your contribution,' was the client's verdict!
