    Knowledge is power and Gary Beckwith certainly has lots of knowledge to share with over three decades working on the River Thames in London. Starting out with just a fuel barge, it slowly grew to a passenger boat and then to become London’s No 1 sightseeing cruise.

A truly amazing man who anyone listening will learn from.
