October 19 I spent the day in Hong Kong, staying at the Mira Hotel (where one of my heroes, Edward Snowden, stayed in room 1014 and handed over the largest government classified info leak to journalists).
October 17 and 18 I went to Shenzhen for more lectures, company visits, and pitch events.
October 16 I went to Hanghzou to meet executives from Alibaba and investors from the Zhejiang CKGSB Alumni Association.
October 15 I went to Shanghai for more lectures, and to meet the biggest investment fund in China: Fosun.
October 13 and 14 I was in Beijing for a Cheung Kong Graduate School of Business CKGSB program called China Start: a one-week China immersion program for global start-ups and growth companies to learn China-specific knowledge, network with potential local partners and pitch for Chinese investment. The program is managed by Bo Ji (Chief Representative, GKGSB Europe; Assistant Dean, Global Executive Education) and his amazing team.
March 3rd I was supposed to be home in Spain, and yet, here I was, in Amsterdam by accident.
You know when a customer calls you on a Sunday night on your cell and tells you “I want to meet you tomorrow”? Yeah, it happens all the time. Except my customer was in Bangkok (Thailand) and I was in Valencia (Spain). Of course, I said “yes”. Here’s another one: you know when you’re supposed to take an 11 hour flight back home, but Pakistan and India escalate military frictions, close air space, and your flight gets rerouted for an extra 3 hours, making you miss your connexion and forcing you to stay in another country for an extra day? Yeah, it doesn’t happen that often. Now try both at the same time. Welcome to my world.
