Flew to Zürich late yesterday, to speak at a conference organised by öbu. Bit of a hiccup at the airport, where a busload of passengers from the same BA flight were taken to an entrance where they didn’t have to show their passports – at which point, the terminal was locked down while the BA passengers were separated out. Not fun.
Very much enjoyed the event today, which was linked to the World Business Council for Sustainable Development, whose side session I joined in the afternoon. Nice interval sitting outside in the square with Joanna Hafenmayer of MyImpact, also a board member of öbu.
Had fretted that the threatened strike by French air traffic controllers would keep me in Zürich, but BA 717 took off on time and, despite a couple of turbulence-related lurches as we headed into Heathrow, I got home in good time and good order.
Former PM John Major was in the front seat of 717 as I boarded – and no doubt (this is a postscript) was pondering what he would say about the Brexit/Leave campaign. His thoughts widely broadcast today.
