In 2006, we held our first event in Asia. Bangkok, Thailand would be the host for TBLI CONFERENCE ASIA for the next 3 years. We really enjoyed hosting it there. Wonderful people, fantastic support, lots of fun, great food, beautiful Thai musicians, oh yeah almost forgot. The programs and networking were first class. I particularly enjoyed Piyasvasti Amranand, Minister of Energy and Senator Mechai Viravaidya, Founder and Chairman – Population And Community Development Association – Thailand.
The entire event was spectacular as you can see from the video and photos. I got quite emotional watching the film, as it brought back wonderful memories convening TBLI all these years. Many friendships were started and communities were forged. I was certainly younger. We even had a journalist from Dutch Radio, VPRO interviewing the various thought leaders.
Below is a video with impressions of that first TBLI in Asia. You can find more impressions of other TBLI CONFERENCES, maybe you will find a photo of yourself or friend. I apologise for the bad quality, but I was going through the archives and came across this video. Sorry if you are not a Joni Mitchell fan, but I am.
Please join us in Singapore for TBLI CONFERENCE ASIA April 29-30 to create new memories.
