Business big shot: David Greer of Regal Petroleum

Mr Greer's exhortations that his staff should “lead me, follow me or get out of my way” bore a striking resemblance to a famous speech given by the American general George Patton to troops during the Second World War. Widely ridiculed, Mr Greer, every inch the grizzled oilman, resigned.
