Sir Owen Glenn has been fighting battles for a long time now. While he’s been battling former business partner Eric Watson in the British courts, he’s also been battling cancer.
But when I ask how he is feeling – to kick off an interview aboard his luxury yacht Ubiquitous – he bypasses the health updates for a more descriptive response.
“Well, we had a big party on board last night, we took a nice group out on a cruise at sunset, came back and sang a few songs on karaoke,” he says.
It’s not surprising that Glenn, 78, would feel like partying.
For now, the cancer is clear and the court decision has gone his way.
The courts have not only released about $250 million of his money that had been locked up in a dispute over his joint venture with Watson, it has also ruled that he was wronged and ordered payment of another $50 million – with a further decision on costs yet to come.
