Message from the Director of Operations.

There is an ancient Chinese proverb which says “Do a job you enjoy and you never work a day in your life”. I am fortunate to meet a lot of very pleasant and fascinating people and every day is a unique experience in my role. This month i had the opportunity to host a function for the Ecole Nouvelle de la Suisse Romande (ENSR) at Arnoma Grand Bangkok, where Lusandre C Seraidaris the son of the School’s founder, Cleon C Seraidaris, the private Tutor to two of Thailand’s Monarchs, King Rama VIII and the recently deceased Great King, His Majesty King Bhumibol, Rama IX. took us on a fascinating journey as he revealed to an enthralled audience details of his father’s time with the two Kings. We also had the opportunities to lend our support to World Environment Day’s energy saving efforts and had the pleasure to welcome a large group of Chinese Travel experts who had been attending the Thailand Travel Mart in Chiang Mai. In spite of it being “Low” Season June was still extremely busy. But as the Chinese proverb says – Do job enjoy…..
