DAY 2 19.10.2009
Woke up to beautiful weather in Charlotte, cool but sunny. Met Kharun this morning at breakfast, Charles old friend and colleague. He arrived last night. We decided to head off town at 1.30 pm to explore one of the area’s many boutiques, outlet malls and alfresco shopping centers. Charlotte has a quiet charm about it with lovely streets and homes. It has a website of its own called Charlotte’s Got a Lot where you can read up on its attractions and history.
Getting ready to Go
The Starfish Community Expo is kicking in. Most of the delegates would be arriving tonight and the registration booth has been set up.
Was introduced to Mike Schorah, CEO of WhisperRoar. The lone Englishman in a sea of Americans! Mike comes not just with degrees from Oxford University and Bristol University but is a business leader who was also as a pastor in the Church of England with a pioneering role for the Archbishop of Canterbury. Isn’t that an interesting background. Well it’s going to be fascinating and diverse group of people that I will be meeting in the next three days, that’s for sure.
