Lord Michael Howard begins by saying that luck is a very important part of business but also it’s vital that you make your own luck. Be persistent and never give up. He states that he has the great privilege of being chairman of ‘Help the Hospices’ and he visited the world’s first children’s hospice in Oxford, set up by Sister Francis who he says is one of the most successful person he’s ever met.
