I wondered. The last time I had coffee with Noel was at the ferry terminal and I thought I was going to drop a new one on him talking about appreciative inquiry, but he already knew about and was practicing that in his consulting work. So, do you know another person from Batam -- Eric Baldwin? He's my son.
Thank you Doug,
I have a good friend in Singapore by the name of Noel Tan. I don't know if you know him or not. I need to introduce him to the World Cafe. I'm sure it would be something he would really like.
I'll give you a heads up the next time I'm coming through.
Hi dear Doug...

AND, do you remember Chaiwat Thirapantu--our key World Cafe steward in Thailand? He's in Bankok I think as well and it would be wonderful if the two of you could connect. He's truly an amazing and inspiring man....one of our true kindreds in this lifetime.
His e-mail is: Chaiwat Thirapantu .
And, are you in touch with Sheila Damadoran at all?
Take good care,
