I Cried Today

“That’s nothing unusual,” would be the response from friends who know me well. My best friend forever even calls me a little princess, because I am just as likely to burst into tears whilst witnessing a gross act of kindness as I am when witnessing an equally gross act of cruelty. I am passionate about the way that people treat people and I am an emotional man.

However, today is slightly different.

For many years, almost since its inception in 2000, I have been a member of ENBIS, the European Network for Business and Industrial Statistics. I was on the Council for four years and I a Vice President for two. My father, Tony Greenfield, who died in March, was a founding member and was President in 2002-2003.

Today, my good friends, Shirley Coleman and Ron Kenett, sent me live photographs from the annual conference in Budapest, of the current President, Antonio Pievatolo, presenting a tribute to my Dad in the main auditorium.

I wish that I could have been there. I am so very proud of my Dad’s lifetime achievements.

Thank you Shirley, Ron and Antonio.
