(excerpt from his speech)…..

want to dedicate my talk to my late sister Rebecca Dadswell, who passed away this year, exactly four months to this day. She also taught me to how to bring wisdom to work. It is 7th Century in Ancient China. Guandong Province. Two monks are arguing whilst looking at a flag fluttering in the wind. One monk insists that the flag is moving and the other insists that it is the wind that is moving. Neither will concede. An old monk appears from the mist [because its always misty on such occasions] and says: “the flag isn’t moving. The wind isn’t moving. It is your minds that are moving.” The old man was Hui Neng, an old sage also known as the Sixth Patriach. Over his lifetime he went on to teach the importance of keeping a clear mind, finding your true self and helping others. 

Today, Ladies and Gentlemen I would like to talk about something that has a bad name, at least in the world of business – wisdom. (click to read the entire speech)
