Thank you Glasgow Chamber of Commerce for honouring me in this way. I belong to Glasgow. I was born here, I was educated here and got my qualifications here. Glasgow made me and it’s been great to give something back. While I belong to Glasgow, maybe a wee bit of Glasgow belongs to me!Lord Smith of Kelvin KT CH
