I had a first class education, there is no doubt about it, at a time when a British state education was among the finest to be had.
A good education equipped me to think strategically as well as perform operationally, to delight in beauty, poetry, and art, while also being able to crunch numbers and wash up plates.
It has meant I have been able to move easily between arts and sciences, the academic and the practical, write accurately about business and finance, run IT projects, develop the EU wide electronic medical record, craft novels, establish restaurants...
I often say that I am good as both chief and Indian, and, in these sensitive times, remind people that I can say that, as I am the last generation that can claim tribal membership.
Lots to be grateful for.
