I got a special note today – an invitation to join the Board of a public liability company! Young people, never doubt the days of humble beginnings; the world has a promise. Yes, work hard so that in your absence, men and women will recommend you. Indeed, the greatest moment in a career is when people make a case for you in your absence.
For this position, who nominated me? I have no clue. But I am happy that my emails and Whatsapp are set (default setting) to receive “good news”.
“Good morning Sir, it’s my pleasure to inform you that you have been nominated to be an Non Executive Director of [ ] plc,….”
Keep them coming.---
