WELCOME BACK Readers,
This issue we’re taking a look at sports and education – ways to achieve high stakes goals with hard work and determination.
It’s a fitting topic with the recent launch of the Countdown to the Asian Games, which marked the one year countdown to the Games. Athletes from around the continent will flock to Jakarta and Palembang, South Sumatra, next August in the hopes of winning medals and pride for their countries. While the athletes are working hard preparing, so too are Indonesia’s organizers. With a tight budget and infrastructure woes, will we be ready in time?
Next we talk to Brook Williams Ross, the founder of Indonesia Education Partnerships, about the challenges in matching education and the needs of a future labour market. What was once common advice no longer fits the needs of a market or the interests of a young person. How we meet that gap is vital to future successes. Until next time,
Let the future tell the truth, and evaluate each one according to his work and accomplishments. The present is theirs; the future, for which I have really worked, is mine. Nikola Tesla
