For the past 6 months, our family has been working extremely hard to relocate my wife Lyn’s business (Kiva) to wonderful new premises. And just when you think that things are getting close to normal, along comes an exciting new career opportunity for me elsewhere.
I am now in Dubai working with David Rymer on knowledge management projects for a business based in Dubai. I arrived over here last Friday and will be here for about 6 months. The work itself is fascinating, the experience will be fulfilling, and the money will help pay some bills.
I will aim to post about some of the professional aspects and insights of the work on this blog over the next few months. In the meantime, I have commenced another blog (lukedubai) that I will use as my travel journal for friends and family to see what I have been doing.
Dubai is Corporate Disneyland, construction zone, global logistics hub, desert city and shopping mecca all rolled together. I’m still getting my bearings and the culture change is slowly starting to subside.
