Arrived home safe and sound. The trip was extremely worthwhile, especially in terms of making new contacts and promoting the Etisal expo.
I’d like to thank the MCB’s Business and Economics Committee for taking us with them. The BEC is made up of some outstanding individuals, and they also make a very complimentary team with their various skillsets and talents. This is just one committee of the organisation, so it says something for its overall strength. I wish them well in their future works, especially as they seem to have some very exciting bits of work on the go.
On our part, there was a lot of interest in the work SIF is doing, and in Scotland generally. There was even some people looking to replicate our model in Jakarta!
Final comment goes to one of the BEC who shares his diary with his wife. This week was blanked out for the “5th WIEF”. She got a little worried that not only had he got a second, third and fourth spouse, but was onto a totally forbidden one!
