SIA Quiz raises £45k

Quiz raises £45,000 for Spinal Injuries

The 2014 Spinal Injuries Association (SIA) Oil & Gas industry quiz raised over £45,000 for the charity which does such good work supporting people who are suffering from a spinal cord injury.   OPC was one of the sponsors of the evening which features concurrent events in London and Aberdeen and included more than 600 attendees from organisations throughout the Oil & Gas sector.

OPC Global Business Development Manager David Carney said “The SIA quiz is always enjoyable and the 2014 event, celebrating the 40th anniversary of the SIA, was the best ever and very well attended and supported by the industry.”

The OPC quiz team comprising of OPC staff, consultants, clients and guests finished in respectable mid-table.   As David Carney explained “We didn’t want to steal the limelight from our clients and were delighted to see one of our clients, Conoco Philips carry off the prize. Many thanks to the team members Mark Young, Ada Branfield, Kate Daly, Greg Bowker, David Carney, Brendan Keating, Sultan Kardas, Chris Bayly, Chris Clay and Matthew Thompson” .  Click on the image below to see photos from the event:

Quiz master Lord Moynihan posed some tricky questions for the teams competing for the prize.  Here are a few that the OPC team struggled with.

Who was Hannibal’s brother?

What was the name of the Oscar nominated screen writer of “When Harry met Sally” and “Sleepless in Seattle”?   (Apparently the team did know this but the person writing the answer down misspelt their first name!)
