“I am totally committed to nurturing, developing and encouraging talent and entrepreneurship – and in the power of inspiration and personal example. This is the reason why, since meeting Derek, I have been determined to assist him in realising his vision for EiA in any way that I can, and why I am so proud, today, to be chairman of this wonderful organisation.”
