Sharing with Indonesian Students in London
Had a wonderful chance to come back to London last September 2012 and speak in front of 40 Indonesian students in London at Indonesian Embassy, London. This is my first time going to Indonesian embassy and speaking abroad, so I was so excited.
I’m sharing about my new book ‘Yes, You Can!‘ and update them about Indonesian current situation in creative industry especially about writing, online business, and technology. Right now Indonesia is on fire. More than 50% of our population are young people under 35 years old. We are a young country and we move fast!
I got a lot of questions and they were very enthusiastic to know more about what’s going on in their home country. Hopefully when they finished their study, they will come home to help build the nation.
From my observation during my 6 days stay in London, meeting people from various industry who’ve been curious about Indonesia, I know that right now Indonesia has all the energy, the creativity, the human resources, the ‘problems’ aka opportunities to move forward, run faster and grow bigger.
Question is: would you be part of it?
Thanks to PPI London especially to Aziz and team, also Erditya Arfah for all the help and info while I’m in London. Hope to see you again!
