thumbup Mike, you're our inspiration
« Thread started on: Jan 21st, 2016, 06:06am »

Iíve just been on one of those cringe-worthy motivational courses that companies now feel obliged to send all their employees on. During this event, cards bearing quotations from famous people were handed out:
Mahatma Gandhi on empowerment
Albert Einstein on achievement
Ernest Hemingway on trust
Mike Rutherford on collaboration (ďBeing in a band is always a compromise. Provided that the balance is good, what you lose in compromise, you gain by collaborationĒ).

Forget all those record sales Mike, you havenít really arrived until youíre hailed as an inspiration by a sizeable British insurance company! cool
