Outdoor Lovers on KBC!
Wow, what a beautiful weekend here in Korea! I hope you spent it with family and friends outdoors. Even the grannies got out and enjoyed the late spring weather!
1. Looking Forward to Seeing You at the SGBSC-KBC Networking Event Next Month
While this year's venue for the SGBSC-KBC event has a ton of atmosphere, it's not huge. So if you want to enjoy the networking, food, drinks... and prizes (details coming soon!), then if you haven't already, I suggest you get registered soon, because signups are already flowing in quickly. Don't forget that your online registration only counts after you've completed the payment step, too.
2. The New KBC Experts Corner
Our very own Korea Job Expert William Sisson is beta advising for our new Experts Corner. I even uploaded a new MP3 file of his radio show from last week so I encourage you to get over to the interview and listen, read and ask...
3. Dick Warmington's Interview Has Generated a Lot of Controversy
With a title like "Uncovering Korean Potential at Chadwick School in Korea's New City of Songdo", I really didn't expect there to be much to argue about. But was I ever wrong!
So far, we've had contrarian comments about Songdo City (thanks, Vince), Gale International and mud flats (yup, Vince again), Korean education (that would be me!) and even international adoption (yeah, Eun-Shil!). I've also posted a recap of the interview to my weblog.
We'll be moving soon to the next in our Korea Business Interview Series, so if you want to see what all the action is and share some of your own thoughts, I encourage you to click one of the links in the paragraph above.
I've been reading the book 23 Things They Don't Tell You About Capitalism, lately. Cryptic hint...
Alright, have a good one!~
