 Speakers:

  • William Furniss, Urbanist and Architectural Photographer

William had an early interest in science and design led to an engineering degree at Exeter University in England before beginning his photographic career in 1991. Initially taken with the idea of working as a portrait photographer, Furniss assisted luminaries of the London scene such Patrick Litchfield and Terry O’Neill.

Furniss’ interest in cities led him to New York in 1999 with two years spent there developing his approach which today favours previsualisation of the image and camera-only manipulations to create a subjective but recognisable record of our time and a testament to the belief that cities should be vibrant, enjoyable, sustainable, democratic places that enable a positive future for us on this planet.

Numerous exhibitions have been held of Furniss’ work which features in collections in Hong Kong and elsewhere.

  • Edward Narby, Corporate Account Manager, BBR

Bordeaux was born and raised into a family of winemakers and negociants. Edward’s passion for wine started from a young age growing up on the family vineyard, Château Guiraud, 1st Classified Growth in Sauternes.

Having worked in wine retail in Saint Emilion, Edward came to Hong Kong in September 2014. After his experience with major players in the Hong Kong wine market, Edward joined Berry Brothers & Rudd to bring his Bordeaux and sales experience and passion for fine wines and history to the corporate sales team.
