Friday in the Philippines….My Thrilla in Manila

As a wrap up to my first week in the Philippines, I had an opportunity to speak to about 50 local economic developers in Manila as part of a full day event.

I’m delighted to say the entire day was a success and I was really pleased to hear feedback from the audience that my experiences and sharing while from Canada had universal applications in a country like the Philippines. Pretty exciting stuff. Here is their blog coverage.

Here is my Keynote presentation.
