There comes with that opportunities. But like the opportunities presented by Trevor Lynch and Hydrotech tonight, and the opportunities presented by BP – it will only come to us if we have discipline!’ He ended his stirring address with the words ‘what matters in this world is how disciplined you are prepared to be with the opportunities that are presented to you. Great things come to those who sweat’.
