The Charismatic Charlie Wade by Lord Leaf Chapter 345
Early the next morning, Claire woke up early and put on some makeup.
After putting on her makeup, Charlie felt a little excited because she looked extremely beautiful.
However, he asked Claire out of curiosity, “Dear wife, you usually go to work without putting on any makeup. Why are you putting on makeup today? Are you meeting anyone important?”
On any other normal day, Claire would always leave the house with a bare face because she already had a pleasant and beautiful appearance. She had a pink and rosy complexion, and she rarely needed to put on any makeup at all.
Claire replied earnestly, “Today is the decoration industry summit in Aurous Hill. Why don’t you come with me? It is rare for the organizer to invite me to attend the summit even though I just started my company. This is a good opportunity for me to emerge and make a name for myself in the industry. Therefore, I must make sure that I strive to gain a foothold in the industry so that I will be able to perform well in the future.”
Charlie asked with a surprised expression on his face, “Who is the sponsor for this summit? You just started your company, so why would they invite…”
Claire smiled before she answered, “The summit is hosted by Emgrand Group! The vice- chairman of Emgrand Group, Doris, sent me an invitation letter.”
“No wonder..” Charlie usually did not care about any of the group’s affairs, thus, he did not know that Emgrand Group was the organizer of the summit.
Moreover, he had a feeling that Doris had intentionally organized this summit because his wife had just started her company, and Doris wanted to help Claire expand her company’s popularity.
To put it plainly, this was all just a set up so that his wife could perform onstage.
After she was done putting on her makeup, Claire asked Charlie to put on a suit before they left the house together.
When they arrived at the meeting place, it was already overcrowded. There were many middle-aged men dressed in suits and leather shoes, and they were all accompanied by beautiful girls on their arms.
Charlie had no contacts in the decoration and refurbishment industries, and so, he had no acquaintances there today. However, Claire had already been in this industry for a long time since she had been working for the Wilson Group before this. Hence, she met and greeted a few acquaintances after entering the meeting place.
As Charlie was accompanying Claire while she chatted with some of her acquaintances, he suddenly realized that a crowd of people was surrounding a middle-aged man, all at once. They were all praising and cheering for him.
Charlie’s eyes were extremely sharp, and he could tell at one glance that the woman standing next to the strange middle-aged man was none other than Wendy!
At this time, he could not help but ask Claire out of curiosity, “Wife, hasn’t the Wilson Group gone bankrupt? What is Wendy doing here?”
Claire also glanced in that direction before she shook her head and said, “I am not very sure, but I heard from my mother that the Wilson Group received funds from an investor who decided to invest in the Wilson Group. The Wilson Group has already begun running their business operations as usual for the past few days.”
Charlie could not help but frown.
Invest in the Wilson Group? Who would do that?
Aside from the Wilson family’s conflict with the White family, the Moore family, and the Quinton family, anyone would have heard the news that Emgrand Group had already blacklisted the Wilson Group. Why would anyone actually invest in the Wilson Group and help the Wilson family now? Was there something wrong with this investor’s brain?
Just then, two people near Charlie were whispering amongst themselves, and Charlie heard one of them saying, “Hey! Isn’t that Kenneth Wilson, the chairman of Modestway Group?”
“That’s Chairman Wilson?!” the other person exclaimed. “So, he is also the chairman of the Chamber of Commerce?”
“Yes, that’s him!”
“How could someone from Eastcliff become the chairman of the Chamber of Commerce?”
“The Modestway Group has a lot of businesses all over the country, and the main reason why he became the chairman of the Chamber of Commerce is that the Moore family did not bother to compete with him for that position. Otherwise, the Moore family would have taken the position as the chairman of the Chamber of Commerce.”
Charlie continued frowning as he listened to their discussion.
