Campaign pushed small practices up the agenda

  • Comment

As one of the RIBA presidential candidates I should like to congratulate Paul Hyett on his selection as president elect.

During the four weeks of the campaign Hyett, Alex Reid and I were in relatively close contact, getting to know each other well, and I would like to thank both of them for a good, clean, harmonious campaign. I stood to draw attention to the London-centric management system and to raise the profile of small practices, which make up the bulk of the profession.

One of my regrets is that I was unable to make the London meeting on 1 February, which was sandwiched between Edinburgh the day before and Newcastle a day later - even I cannot drive my car that fast.

My other regret is that I did not achieve more than 27 per cent of the vote; and in that context I feel I have let my supporters down, as Alex had 28 per cent and Paul 45 per cent.

However, I trust that I managed to raise the profile of small practices nationwide and that our voices are now heard at 66 Portland Place.
