I attended the first annual BRICS (Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa) conference yesterday, in Washington, DC, held at the Churchill Hotel and the Russian Embassy.
Wow! What a wonderful bunch of people! Excited, serious, cheerful, optimistic (quite a feat, for our Russian friends) and very, very dedicated to doing BUSINESS! I was especially impressed by the Russians. They seemed to have taken to the idea of doing business everywhere with a wonderful sense of passion.
Personally, as a managing member of RogueNets, I love that passion, and am seriously looking forward to partnering with our new Russian Friends I met yesterday. I see conflict and resolution, passion and depression, and great gobs of success in our future :)
