I organised our first living room talk more than a month ago with Esther as the speaker. Esther had just scaled the Everest and she kindly agreed to share her experience with us in the comfort of my living room. We opened the forum to youths - just our nieces, nephews, friends' children - and received very positive feedback on the session. It attracted quite a few serious athletes and extreme sports enthusiasts as well.
The second talk will be this Saturday, 17 September 2011 by a successful local entrepreneur who has spoken to hundreds of restaurant owners in the past 6 years in the course of bbuilding his own business and knows well what it takes to succeed in the F&B business here in Singapore. Check out his website www.hungrygowhere.com which you may have been a user of or have heard of it before.
A third talk in the line-up will be by Eli, my Israeli classmate from the culinary school. Besides doing a hands-on demo of how a typical Jewish pita bread is baked, Eli will also share more on Jewish culture and history. We'll keep the politics out. We are looking at 8 October for this talk. Hands up, those who are interested and can make it on that day.
I can't promise this will be a regular feature but am going with the flow of opportunities for now. If you know of anyone who has an interesting, inspiring story to share, do send them here!
