MEET THE AUTHOR
Born to professional middle-class parents in the UK and forced to take on the mantle of adulthood at an early age during the turbulent years of World War II, Keith Norman developed an independent spirit and an inner drive that has served him well throughout his business career. His bold optimism and unrelenting energy has taken him around the world in a variety of occupations and in the company of
colorful characters, many of whom became friends, or partners. Despite many ups and downs, and several fortunes gained and lost along the way, Keith’s confidence in his abilities never wavered, and he has always been ready to tackle the next opportunity.
Naturally prone to self-reflection, Keith began to analyze the inner reasons for the course his life had taken, both in business and in his personal decisions, and proceeded to take corrective action, reconciling with those he had inadvertently hurt along the way. In response to several requests from family members, friends, and acquaintances, Keith’s current challenge is to write a “no holds barred”
account of his extraordinary life, which is far from over . . . .
