Stuart Prebble on Gerry Robinson

I really liked Gerry in particular, a very, very affable, charming man, but he once said to me ‘my job is very simple. I say to you I want another 10%’, and I say Gerry, I gave you another 10% last year and the year before, there just isn’t another 10%. And he said, ‘when you’ve finished speaking, I want another 10%’ and you make more excuses, and at a certain point he says ‘I want another 10%, and if you can’t give it to me, then I’ll hire somebody who can.’

And that’s what Gerry did, very laid back.
