Henry Benson
Sir Henry Benson (Later Lord Benson) was one of two senior partners as Cooper Brothers & Co when I was training with the firm (doing 'articles'). His son Peter Benson was one of the other trainees doing articles at the same time. I visited the family in the 60s when I was involved with an International 14 regatta in Chichester harbour. I often refer to this remark make by Sir Henry Benson in a British Court where he was an expert witness.
The judge asked : What is a profit?
After a short pause, Sir Henry Benson replied :
'My Lord ... a profit is the difference between two balance sheets!>
This is one of the most elegant explanations of profit one can imagine ... and the foundation for much of the work I have done as an accountant and analyst, and essential to the thinking related to True Value Metrics.

Dame Zaha Mohammad Hadid DBE RA (Arabic: زها حديد‎‎ Zahā Ḥadīd; 31 October 1950 – 31 March 2016) was an Iraqi-British architect. She was the first woman to receive the Pritzker Architecture Prize, in 2004.[1] She received the UK's most prestigious architectural award, the Stirling Prize, in 2010 and 2011. In 2012, she was made a Dame by Elizabeth II for services to architecture, and in 2015 she became the first and only woman to be awarded the Royal Gold Medal from the Royal Institute of British Architects.[2][3]
She was described by the The Guardian of London as the 'Queen of the curve',[4] who 'liberated architectural geometry, giving it a whole new expressive identity.'[5] Her major works include the aquatic centre for the London 2012 Olympics, Michigan State University's Broad Art Museum in the US, and the Guangzhou Opera House in China.[6] Some of her designs have been presented posthumously, including the statuette for the 2017 Brit Awards, and many of her buildings are still under construction, including the Al Wakrah Stadium in Al Wakrah, a venue for the 2022 FIFA World Cup.[7][8]
