Sadly, Ray Thomson has passed away recently. He was instrumental in kickstarting my angel investor career. He had a charming but very effective way of helping fledgling angel investors grow their wings. He would simply stand behind them at the deep end and push them in to fly, swim or drown. In startup speak 'drown' would be 'fast fail'. Worked for me and from joining Ice Angels in 2010 I rapidly advanced to become chairman of their screening committee and a member of their advisory board under Ray's chairmanship.
