Late scratching

September 2009

As I was putting this column to bed, news arrived of the retirement of Robert Goldman, for the past 10 years the CEO of the Restaurant & Catering Industry Association of New South Wales. Robert not only presided over the turnaround of that association into the powerful body it is today, but he did so with innate good humour and the kind of wicked sense of humour sadly lacking in the upper echelons of management in these dry and difficult times. This may well have had something to do with the fact that Robert hailed from New York, a town where, if you don’t laugh, you’ll probably have to cry. The restaurateurs of NSW will miss you, as will this journalist who could always rely on a cracking good quote and a commonsense reply to any question.
