Willie Haughey, the Glasgow entrepreneur, sometime Celtic director and financial force behind Livingston Football Club, is fully in support of the Scottish Executive's drive on enterprise in education, as he told the national event for business leaders.
But Haughey admitted he was puzzled why he was never invited back to speak or advise on enterprise at his old school, the mighty Holyrood Secondary in Glasgow.
He was often asked to make a financial contribution to projects and initiatives but his skills were never sought.
Back came the reply from the school: "You're still expelled."
Only joking, of course.
