Description

From a small-town law office in Nova Scotia to the pressure-cooker boardrooms of London, England, where he was Margaret Thatcher's "privatization ace," lawyer and businessman Sir Graham Day has earned an international reputation as a tough-minded but charming negotiator.

After a rocky educational start in Halifax, Day found his motivation at Dalhousie Law School and established the contacts and experiences that would guide him through the world of global business. With an impressive resume including troubleshooting roles for large companies (Canadian Pacific Limited, British Shipbuilders, Cadbury Schweppes) around the world, often during controversial times, Day solidified his position as an internationally sought-after change-maker.

In The Last Canadian Knight, award-winning business journalist Gordon Pitts chronicles Day's meteoric rise and explores the lessons Day gleaned from a lifetime spent in and out of the world's boardrooms.
