Invitation: An Evening with Peter Schindler

The Princeton Club of Hong Kong is very excited to kick off this year's events with the first of what we hope will become a regular series of guest lectures and talks. We are extremely fortunate to be joined by Peter Schindler next Tuesday, 11 November 2008.

Peter's story is a fascinating one: educated at MIT and INSEAD, he left the world of management consulting and embarked upon a journey that culminated in 2007, when Peter took to the roads of China for one hundred days in a 1950's Lotus. Upon completion of his 21,000km journey across China, Peter -- a former race-car driver -- auctioned his car off in a charity gala hosted by Yao Ming on behalf of the China Youth Development Foundation. Today, Peter writes about his adventures and continues to organize road excursions throughout China for interested travelers.

Peter's story is outlined in greater detail on his website (http://www.peterschindler.com), where you can also sample some of his writing. We are very honored to have Peter joining us next week and are hoping many of you can join us for his presentation, which promises to be inspirational as well as entertaining!

This event's details are below:

Date: Tuesday, 11 November 2008
Time: 6:30 (drinks), 7:00 (presentation)
Venue: Kingsbridge Group Offices, 21/F, 39 Wellington Street, Central (please ring the doorbell when you arrive)

Drinks will be provided and Peter's talk will be followed by some time for Q&A. The evening will conclude by approximately 8:00 PM.

***Please note that space is extremely limited and reservations will be accepted on a first-come, first-serve basis. If you are interested in attending please reply to this email as soon as possible. Do not delay, as this promises to be a wonderful event!***

We look forward to seeing you next Tuesday evening! Please call Vidya '03 (9570.0606) if you have any questions.
