Thanks everyone for tuning in, I have had a few visitors from people heading to the yearly DCBKK (Dynamite Circle Yearly conference) and will try my best to catch up with a few in Hong Kong while they are passing through. I really wanted to go, but dealing with new daddy duties and local business dealings – that is the event where I got inspired to start this podcast, thanks Dan Andrews for pushing me to make this a reality and cheers guys! Also I am working hard on the book – in 3rd draft and having an editor friend, Russell Smith, checking it over in detail now. Will be expected to release on November 1, and if you join my email newsletter you’ll be the first to know and a bonus, which is globalfromasia.com/book so check it out and leave your email.

So this week’s episode we have Andrew Young, he is the VP of Marketing and Sales at the Hong Kong Science and technology park. The science park is a beautiful and massive tech center in Hong Kong, and he welcomes anyone visiting HK to visit. I’ll put some photos on the show notes so check them out on globalfromasia.com/episode54. Also I have an event to announce they are hosting and other tidbits I’ll mentioned after the interview. So for now, without further ado, let’s get into the show! (also please note I forgot my microphone when I went to the interview and was 3 hours from my home….but the quality came out pretty good but not as good as usual, just a honest heads up!)

Thanks everyone for tuning in and I am excited to keep rocking these podcasts and sharing amazing things. As i said be fore the interview the hong Kong science and technology park is holding an event from Dec 1 to 6 called the APAC Innovation Summit This is their annual signature conference which brings together industry giants, academic experts, government officials and business leaders to discuss and exchange ideas and insights in promoting innovation and technology in Hong Kong and the region.
