Sir David Goodall was our guest speaker at dinner on Tuesday of fourth week. Sir David studied Classics at Oxford before embarking on a career in the Foreign Office and later, the Cabinet Office. He was a senior representative of the United Kingdom in negotiations with the Irish Republic over Northern Ireland in the 1980s, and served as British High Commissioner to India from 1987 to 1991. Over dinner he offered a fascinating glimpse into the diplomatic service during the time he spent on Cyprus and in Berlin during its partition.
