These two photos popped up in my fb feeds today, Memories 5 years ago, November 4, 2014. That day, the Lion Rock Institute held its Reading Club Salon 2014 at a hotel (I forget its name now) in Hong Kong.
I saw Wan Saiful Wan Jan (next to me) and Cathy last September 2017 in NYC. And I saw Kim Byung-Il (between Wan and Cathy) in Jeju Forum May of this year. Thanks again Cathy, for that wonderful evening and forum the next day.
Standing from left: Lawrence Pak, Nick Sallnow-Smith, Kellie Wong, Fred McMahon, Barun Mitra, Brett Smith, Peter Wong, Nic Koehl, Jadranco Brkik, Xingyuan Feng.
Sitting from left: _____, Ken Schoolland, Bill Stacey, Shoulong Mao, me.
Then that evening, we were treated to a welcoming dinner by Catherine Barr Windels, then President of The Policy Workshop (NYC). We have a full day meeting seminar the next day about IPR, health and innovation, same hotel. Time flies fast, now I don't see (from right) Xingyuan Feng, Shoulong Mao, and Barun Mitra. And now HK is no longer as peaceful.
Another photo from Xingyuan that day. Xingyuan, Shoulong, me and Peter Wong.
