It's an entirely American concept - the business breakfast, where movers and shakers network, eat and listen to an oration, and still get to work on time without have drunk alcohol.
Maybe that's why many people aren't exactly crazy about the concept.
Charles Dance's character in Robert Altman's Gosford Park snapped at a babbling American, "an Englishman never speaks at breakfast".
Having said that, it was good to hear the Independent member for Sydney, Alex Greenwich, speak at the Potts Point Partnership breakfast on Tuesday (Sept. 3) at the Crick Avenue outpost of the Bourke Street Bakery.
