"...James Dyson, the inventor and entrepreneur, will claim tonight that a "culture of rewarding failure" must be developed to help safeguard the future of engineering in Britain.

In the 29th Richard Dimbleby Lecture, Mr Dyson argues that Britain has for too long celebrated the individual who is effortlessly brilliant, like the Oxford double first, rather than the "determined slogger".

In fact, says Mr Dyson, B-grade scholars make the best inventors and business people. "They have learned to persevere and they're not scared of failure," he says."

Amen. Link.
