2007 Company Secretaries' Conference

I will be speaking at this year's annual M2Asia conference, please read details. It is flattering to be invited to speak. I notice when you are in power, or in a reasonably powerful position (as perceived by some...) you get lots of speaking invites. But then again, I know alot of people in powerful corporate positions who never get invited or got invited once...and that's it...not anymore...for guess is as good as mine..heehee. Don't get me wrong...power has many faces and connotations...depending from which perspective one is looking at...hihi. At would be an utter disappointment if one thinks that the daddy is all mighty and powerful....when your kids grow up...they are the ones who are really in power....hahaha
