More feedback from the Valerie Owen Fanclub?


I am completely bemused by all this talk of 'personality' affecting the outcome of the RIBA presidential election, by writers who clearly do not know the personalities involved. I have known Valerie Owen for more than 25 years and she was one of my wife's best friends at school. Valerie is sassy and sharp, funny and bright, and seems to me easily the smartest candidate on the block - and gets my vote both for personality and professionalism.
