Who on earth is Harry?
I write a lot of letters. In a letter I can put a point across succintely and informally and so I write letters to my clients all the time. I want to show people how to encourage and inspire themselves and their people to achieve their aims and sometimes to see things in different ways. Sometimes the point is more generic, and can apply to executives in organisations everywhere. So Harry is not a person, but rather could be anyone. He could well be you.
