I had worked in the supplier side of the printing, publishing and advertising industries (now commonly referred to as ‘media’) since 1987. I built up a small graphic arts supply company, turned it into a larger software and support business, sold it and took over the management of a trade association for magazine publishers. In 2014 my media career came to an end. It was a mutual decision 🙂
So to celebrate we packed our bags for two weeks in South East Asia. This was to be a life changing experience for me.
In July 2015, Heidi and I headed to Laos where I volunteered at Vientiane International School. My role was part intern, part teacher of Business Studies to Diploma students and part web developer for the school’s new website.
A year later I was head-hunted to fill the role of Business Manager at OurPlanet International School in Muscat, Sultanate of Oman, and the rest is history.
This blog, and its associated social media channels, will be a visual diary of our experiences. Enjoy!
