But I want to tell you about the last 2 days. I have had the most exciting, amazing, uplifting time of my life! I have met, listened to, and talked with many iconic businessmen and women. And if anybody had ever told me that, one day, I would actually be invited to speak at the Royal Institution, in the very same room as Faraday, well, my oh my...
Dave and I attended this year’s Family Business Place Conference. My friend, Anita, organises it, and she asked me to open the day as first speaker, on the subject of Honesty in the Family Business. So I did!
I spoke for 20 minutes, from the heart.
I had made some notes which were longer than the Dead Sea Scrolls, just in case I froze.
But I didn’t have to look! Once I got going, you couldn’t shut me up!
We got to listen to some of the finest Business People in the country, too.
Charlie Mullins from Pimlico Plumbers and Victoria Christian, Clive Christian’s daughter,
were absolutely fascinating.
The venue was spectacular, the guests and speakers blew me away.
There was this fantastic sense of empowerment, and this feeling of “we are in this together.”
And this gentleman stole my heart. He and I stuck together most of the day.
He will be very familiar to you, even though you do not know him.
Allow me to introduce
Peter Thornton of Thornton’s Chocolate.
So yes, it was a day to remember. I was chuffed to be there!!
