Chapter 2 – Meet the Delegates

The Delegates for the Conference

The conference would utilise two of the spacious meeting rooms, one for the business side and the other for relaxation and refreshment. They were both elegantly fully equipped rooms featuring natural daylight and ideal for the conference. There was also plenty of room for up to thirty delegates but there was a considerable amount of extra technology that would enhance the delivery of the information, this was being supervised by Hugo and Natasha.

Kirill stood at the podium glancing around at the seven empty seats and started to remind himself of some of his favourite quotes that embraced his mood and it was as if they echoed his sentiments around the room.

  1. “If you want to live for a hundred years then you need to keep learning for a hundred years.” An old Russian proverb.
  2. “Keep your friends close and your enemies closer.” Michael Corleone in the Godfather Part II (1974).
  3. “Opportunities multiply as they are seized.” Art of War by Chinese military strategist Sun Tzu dating from 5th century BC.

This was to be the third conference after fifteen years of research and report writing and extensive validation exercises. The first conference had taken place in London, England during December 2007 and the second in Turin, Italy also during December 2012. The next conference had not been confirmed yet nor had the agenda, that was not his immediate concern as he concentrated on the present situation.

These delegates were part of a very special group of people, highly intelligent, wealthy and powerful individuals who had serious powerbrokers behind them. However, they also paid a very high personal price for maintaining a position in this elite group.

In this business you had no family ties or close friends because no-one could blackmail you with threats of kidnapping, extortion, death or otherwise and these were always the weakest links.

A prerequisite to membership included:

  • Single female
  • Childless
  • No living relatives
  • Very intelligent
  • Highly educated
  • Multi-lingual
  • Seriously wealthy
  • & no connectivity to any global law enforcement or security agencies

Kirill had a significant amount of information on the “The Seven Deadly Sins” which would not be shared with any other parties. He kept a small pocketbook with brief descriptions which he amended periodically depending on information provided by various other sources.

The conference was due to start in 24hrs and he needed that time to complete all the preparations for the presentations and that meant extensive and exhaustive work with both Hugo and Natasha.

The collection and delivery of the delegates to the conference venue were not his concern and he was not privy to any of the details of the close protection agenda. However, he made it his business to know what was going on and had extensive knowledge of those details and they were always concealed in a high security data bank. Self-preservation was paramount in this game and he would do anything in his powers to ensure that his presence amongst the living would extend for as long as possible, there were still many dreams on his “Bucket-List” and he had every intention of fulfilling them!
