Dinner in honor of our friend and mentor Napier Collyns

Year of Napier

Last night John Rozsa and I hosted a dinner for our friend and mentor Napier Collyns at Paragary’s in Sacramento. It was a great evening, and also gave me a chance to meet his wife Pat for the first time. Since they are parents of five sons with a resume of living on multiple continents, the logistics of their parenting and working careers are daunting.

The event was part of a larger “Year of Napier,” (“Napi Year” to those in the know) celebration of Napier’s 80th birthday and his global network (to coin a phrase) that culminates this weekend in San Francisco. Napier had a huge influence on John Rozsa’s and my careers and outlook on life by introducing us to many books and the Global Business Network. It was great to honor him.

    Hi John
    I am trying to get hold of Napier or Pat. We live next door to Napier’s cottage in Aldbourne, Wiltshire, UK. We are about to move our gate and since Turnpike Cottage adjoins our drive, we would like to inform them of the change we are about to implement. Hoping you can help.
    Best regards
    Tony
