What Matters the Most

Nov 24, 2008

Over the past week, I’ve been attending a lot of events, as part of the Global Entrepreneurship Week 2008 Singapore.

Thinking back on the week, though, one thing struck me. The session that I enjoyed the most, and gained the most out of, in my opinion, wasn’t the talks. It wasn’t listening to experts, etc. It was the networking session – just interacting with other people who are passionate about the subject.

At the end of it all, that’s what I think matters the most – the people. Not “experts” or concepts or anything. Yes, those are important. But what’s the most important is the people (to me, at least).

What matters the most to you?

SpeedNetwork the Globe 2008

Nov 17, 2008

This Saturday, I’ll be hosting a breakfast at SpeedNetwork the Globe 2008, a part of the Global Entrepreneurship Week@Singapore.

I think SpeedNetwork the Globe seems to be a really interesting event, and I’m very excited to be able to be a part of it. It’s a whole day event taking place concurrently in Singapore, Stockholm and Silicon Valley. There will be speakers at each location, and there will be live video streams and online discussions taking place.

It’s essentially one event in 3 locations – and a true demonstration of how technology has broken down boundaries and made it easy to connect with anyone.

Sounds cool? I think it is. I’m really looking forward to it, and I hope to see you there. You can sign up here.
