Subject: Behaviour at staff social events
 
All, 
 
We recently held a BCM Strategy update meeting last week in London.  This was followed by a social event at Azzurro, Tooley Street. 
 
Unfortunately we have had some reports of unprofessional behaviour which occurred at the social event. 
 
Please can I take this opportunity to remind you all that these events are work functions, booked in EY's name and paid for by EY.  This therefore constitutes an extension of working hours where we are all still representing the firm.  It therefore goes without saying that we need to act professionally at all times.   
 
Regards,

If you've got more details or pictures, obviously we'd love for you to email us.
