Good Evening Everyone! I just got back behind the Orange Curtain in Huntington Beach and wanted to share a quick note with you about a little meeting that I had tonight.
I’m sure you already know, but just in case you don’t, I’m one of the approved vendors for the upcoming 2012 Olympics in London, UK. It’s definitely an honour to be a part of history coming up and I’m sure that all the years that I shot extreme sports – will pale in comparison to the Olympics.
So tonight was the first of many meetings to come with Think London & UK Trade & Investment. As London is preparing to host the Olympic and Paralympic Games, they have coordinated a North American Roadshow to chat about the incredible opportunities associated with London delivering the very FIRST digital and sustainable Olympic games.
The British Consul General; Mr. Bob Peirce & his lovely wife; Mrs. Sharon Harroun Peirce hosted the event in their beautiful home in Hancock Park. Ms. Janet Coyle, the Director of the 2012 Games at Think London presented along with Dan Epstein, the Head of Sustainability at Olympic Development Authority and a few others. I’m so impressed with what the city of London is doing for not only the city, but the community as well. So many aspects of the Olympic games are recyclable too!
As I was about to leave for an evening coffee with my good friend and Camera Dojo guest; Roberto Valenzuela, but I made a quick stop-off to share my appreciation with Ms. Coyle for putting together so much information for us. Well, one thing led to another & I was chatting with several people that are going to play an integral part in us expanding into London. Or should I say will help us ramp up the timeline that I’ve been thinking about to what will seem like light speed.
I’ll have so much more to share with you as time continues, so definitely stay in touch so you’ll be up-to-date – cheers!
