Amy (Birchall) and I have spent five days intensively cross-crossing Singapore, speaking at events for the likes of the Civil Service College, the Lien Centre, the CSR Compact and INSEAD. Covered part of the story in a blog for The Guardian here. Among others we met were the Economic Development Board, the Family Business Network and Unilever. A great deal of interest in the city-state in having us back and in our developing Volans Asia 2.0.
On the more social side, we kicked off with a great dinner with Kevin Teo and Allen Tan, former colleagues at Volans Asia. Although we were kept pretty stretched during the week, Amy and I also managed to get up to the top of the extraordinary Marina Bay complex on evening, and – on my final morning – to the Botanical Gardens, where we unexpectedly, but delightfully, bumped into Sumi Dhanaran, who we had been working with earlier in the week on the Civil College Service event.
