Hi.I am in Manila. right now there is a big typhoon and we are all stuck in the offices. To be honest, currently the desk is the only place to view the world. Ha! Ha! Got you....

As every week, thanks for opening our minds.


Bottom line - I'm an old fashioned salesman although in our brave new world I'm referred to as an "account executive".

When a client calls me and says "I've got a problem", my response is 'I'll be right over".

My client base is kept small but successful. I do have the luxury of my clients being within a 1-2 hour drive of my office. I never handle issues over the phone when I have the choice of sitting in front of the client and seeing first hand what they're having a problem with.

And frankly, that should be law.


In my previous company,we used to have borrel with beer to discuss weekly issues and that was more productive than conference room meetings...

Becoming An Entrepreneur:


Meetings are the way of life in my company. That is our culture. The key issue that needs to be addressed is having effective meetings. If we do that, there would be increase productivity. Travel to overseas sites costs a lot so the best is to have discipline of effective meetings.

Having a day without meetings? Are you kidding me? Many employees will have to be treated for depression...We are in new age. Called information age. Today's Maharaja engineers and Emperor managers want infomation served to them on a silver plater, right at their desktop. Walking on production floor, dirtying your hands? Such an unholy and below dignity thing to do. I think you are out of touch with reality...Conference rooms are the best places for high visibility.

There is one famous lesson from our history: When Rome was burning, Nero was fiddling....We must avoid falling in the trap of developing last of the Roman culture in corporations. Executives need to stay close to the voice of the people. Successful companies do very well in this area.

while first hand experience cannot be discounted as intrinsic part of the decision making process in today's corporate world it is almost impossible to CEO's to visit every location to deal with a problem or arrive at a business decision.
