I believe it was my grandfather who gave me the best advice I have ever received. His thinking is something I still cherish and try to emulate every day.

His dictum was simple: whatever you do in life, do it for something more than your own ends. Do it for others. Do it for society. I have tried to carry his advice with me in all my endeavours. It is this advice that led me to enter the wind energy sector - the opportunity to work in a business that gives back to the investor, society and the environment.

Today, I believe this advice holds truer than ever before. We live in a world where hundreds of millions of people still do not have access to the basic necessities that many of us take for granted: food, water and energy. And yet, it is a world where we have done incalculable damage to the environment in pursuit of development.

I see in today's economy more opportunity than ever before to create inclusive, sustainable businesses. Businesses which are resource-responsible and environment friendly.

Businesses which create decent, meaningful jobs, which deliver sustainable economic development, and which are successful and profitable.

Without a doubt, advice worth remembering and trying to follow.
