Next week local business owners have the chance to sit down for lunch with Adam Afriyie MP for Windsor. Just checking his website for some information and I spotted a link he tweeted to a BBC video for the Sunday Interviews with Andrew Neil.
Adam talks about his rise from Peckham to Westminster and how he learned, through trial and error, to grow his business into the amazingly successful empire it is today.
The BBC has it that Adam is talking about business being a force for good and how we should celebrate success and not be envious of those who brake away from the pack and do well… that’s how I took it anyway.
I’d like to flip this around, I admire his ability to see the big picture and just paint some gentle arrows on the ground. Where I might bang my fist on the table and swear, wasting a ton of energy on anger, from what I have seen of him, Adam would evaluate and calmly move forward in the right direction.
