I am not a big fan of working lunches or dinners. The results rarely justify the time spent. Yesterday was an a welcome exception to the rule.

Yesterday I had a working lunch with  Patrick Cescau, the CEO of Unilever (brands such as Flora, Lipton and Knorr). An impressive guy with a pro-European vision and a sense of humour. Just what the doctor ordered…

We need more business-leaders like Cescau who are ready to defend Europe and free markets. We need people who can communicate what Europe is all about.
