AB as I knew him was an inspiration and mentor to me as a young intern at T&G insurance company. He taught me many things, but most of all the art of leadership, with which he was a master.
Public - Colin - Friend - 19 April 2018
We shared many great conversations, where I listened mostly to his wisdom and guidance.
We played golf together at his much loved Australian golf club in Kensington NSW, where he won the seniors championship.
I miss him to this day..
