Rensburg Sheppards held a VIP reception for their guests in the Panoramic Restaurant before their guests joined the audience who were then enthralled by Sir Michael's talk about his filming career and the promotion of his book.

MBC were pleased to organise the Rensburg Sheppards VIP reception as well as a chance to meet Sir Michael Caine. MBC were also instrumental in preparing and sending out the press releases associated with the event.

The wealth management company which has been based in Cheltenham for over 40 years, sponsored one of the main events at the 61st Literature Festival at the Cheltenham Racecourse on Sunday 10th October.

The 'The Elephant to Hollywood' event charted Sir Michael's life from rags to riches and from London to Los Angeles. There was also a chance for guests to ask the national treasure questions about his life and career which shows no signs of slowing down.

Jim Trafford, Divisional Director of Rensburg Sheppards in Cheltenham, said "We've been involved with the Cheltenham Literature Festival for over 20 years and always like to link ourselves with one of their high profile speakers and obviously Sir Michael Caine definitely fits that bill. It's very important for us to support a local event like this, because we want to add and give back to a community that we have been a part of for over 40 years."

Staff from Rensburg Sheppards met Sir Michael Caine before the event when he praised the festival and said how important it is that local businesses continue their support: Morgan-Brinkhurst Consultancy's press associate Laura Harrison had the enviable job of interviewing Sir Michael before he then took the stage for this event. Sir Michael Caine said "The supporters are terribly important and I want to thank Rensburg Sheppards for sponsoring my talk this evening. This literature festival, in particular, is one of the best, it's fantastic. I didn't realise how big it was but I was watching the television yesterday and suddenly they featured the festival. It's enormous!"

Sir Michael also shared with the sponsors his love of reading and his plans to write a fictional story one day:

"I've read all my life. I can't remember the last time I went to sleep without reading first because I read to clear my mind. I always read thrillers and I've always wanted to write one and now I've written this autobiography the next bit of writing I'm going to do is going to be a thriller. But I've got to do three movies first!"
