Hong Kong, China
The cities I spoke in during October 2012 are as different as the clients that I had.
Nike Foundation, Keppel Group, Stoli, Pacific Basin, IKEA and Wikborg, Rein & Co.
In one month I got to learn about how Nike is supporting girls in Africa, how a off shore company is reshaping its training, what the future of premium vodka looks like, how the shipping industry is handling its crises, how a furniture company is trying to work differently with its suppliers and how a foreign law firm looks at the future of China.
The great thing with being a speaker is not only that you get to inspire people to be more creative, you also BECOME more creative and inspired by learning from so many different industries.
