You are here
Coming to speak at the National Press Club is one of those opportunities that really makes you sit up and pay attention.
When I was first invited I asked a friend who is a member, how big is the audience?
He told me the room seats 300, but two years ago they managed to squeeze in 350. I said, great, what does it take to get that turnout? Who was the speaker?
He said, Angelina Jolie.
And I said, no problem. I mean, she's a pilot ... I'm a pilot. What's she got that I don't have?
He said, do you want a list?
I am very grateful to all of you in the audience today. Thank you for being here. I plan to make this an hour well-spent in your busy lives.
