It was kind of awkward as the Thais dont speak very good English and because of time constraints my translator told me to just go ahead "but speak very slow. VERY SLOW PLEASE MR CHINDI. You talk quite fast"
It was an OK crowd about 100 people, mainly some professors of sports management from local universities, some corporate clients and personnel from the Thailand Sports Authority.
Was still amazed at my supreme talent at managing to put 2 fuckers to sleep within 15 minutes of my presentation at 10.30 in the MORNING. Was EVEN MORE amazed when one of those dozers managed to wake up after the talk and actually ask me quite pertinent questions. Is there such as thing as 'sleep eavesdropping'?
Anyway for some reason that 5000 Bhat is now sitting in my drawer in an envelope marked "First Speaking Engagement. Many more to come"
Yeah it WAS kind of a cool experience. I'm hooked.
