Sir Humphrey Prideaux OBE MA DL

Basingstoke Gazette: Sir Humphrey Prideaux, who passed away aged 98 earlier this month
He was kind enough to write the following when I moved down to Bath:
“During the last five and a half years, Debbie Newman has been employed in a part time capacity as hirings manager for Lord Wandsworth College Enterprises Ltd. During that time she has established the company as a growing concern  and has thus made a significant contribution to the financial strength of the College.  Her previous professional experience brought inside knowledge of many potential clients which was particularly useful in the start-up phase, but the success of the company has been mainly due to her organising ability and her happy touch with clients. She has a shrewd financial instinct, a good knowledge of accounting procedures and manages her budgets very tightly.
Her warm and friendly personality is ideal for work in this field where human relationships are all important and her professional skill has been proved beyond all doubt.     I can thoroughly recommend her”.
Sir Humphrey Prideaux,    August 1992
