Empowering the young

Sir Terence Matthews, who has started more than 100 companies in his career, is helping the next generation build businesses and a future.

'Anyone in industry will tell you that the No 1 item to look for is the ability to work as a team. The No 2 item is also the team and the No 3 item is still the team.'

WHEN Terry Matthews sits down in the exalted company of people who own famous golf courses, he has a line that can't be beaten. He says: "I bet your golf course never had a fighter plane parked on the 17th fairway?"

Needless to say that captures attention. More on that incident later.
