Comments & Testimonials

We really can’t thank John sufficiently for coming to the Phoenix dinner. It was a privilege for us, as the many effusive calls and messages I have received testify. Not only was the address scholarly, it was also fascinating. I realise that it was - and is - the product of years of deep thinking about the issues allied to insightful observations of the world John has encountered. It was commented that, in a real sense, John was ‘on call’ throughout the whole evening - including the pleasant rounding-off interlude in the hotel library - and, if I may say so, his considered replies to the many questions were invariably stimulating.
