End notes
I’m writing this in Chep Lap Kok International after spending 10 amazing days in Hong Kong. Great to see the family, meet friends old and newand get a taste of a different rhythm of life. Off now to Kuala Lumpur for a lightning 48 hours. Ping me if you’re in town today or tomorrow and want to talk recruiting or the future of the planet. In this weather, I’ll do it for coconuts.
Have a great week everybody.
