It is said that the great ones are humble and quietly assured about their achievements. This is certainly true for Sir Angus Houston, whose dinner speech on leadership and innovation entertained and inspired the delegates at our Food Chain Innovate summit. As one would expect from a military leader, Sir Angus worked brilliantly to our brief. We recommend him to anyone who is looking for a first class speaker.
