Teach kids to have hope for the future

“Dad was always an optimist and an enthusiast. Whatever we said, he would say ‘that’s brilliant’. He always encouraged us, no matter what the problem was. Dad always embraced change and looked forward to tomorrow and the changes it would bring – I guess that is one of the reasons he has always been successful.” – Mimi Packer, daughter of Harold Clough, prominent Western Australian businessman
