Warwick was a great role model for integrity, clarity, and just getting on with the job. When you were with him you had his full attention and he had that way of getting to the point or getting things done without ever appearing to be rushed. We were both life members of the old Jaycees organisation (Junior Chambers of Commerce). As a young man, Warwick was supported by his employer, the Bank of New South Wales, to serve a term as world treasurer for the Junior Chamber, based in the USA. It was an honour and pleasure to know him.
