So how about Center Court tickets, a stay at a top hotel in Wimbledon Village and a couple of lovely meals thrown in?
All on the house of course, just call it relationship building between an appreciative City of London institution and its valuable client.
Ordinarily it would be a no-brainer. "Of course we'd love to come, and very kind of you to invite the wife too," being the standard response. Just one of the many perks of City life, no?
It's not just the characters from 1970s cult British TV sitcom "The Good Life" - Jerry and Margot Leadbetter - who would recognize this scenario being played out on the London summer corporate social scene. Just look at the huge City sponsorship of the Chelsea Flower Show, the Cricket Test Match at Lord's and, of course, Wimbledon and you can see how integral a part of doing business it's become.
The problem is the cracks may be appearing in the old way of doing business. And a cocktail, not Pimms, but of other more worrying spirits means the old corporate freebies and jollies are potentially on the wane and the corporate boxes are perhaps a little bit thinner this year.
