[LETTERS to the editor]A networking tip
I have been living in Korea for the past year. Since arriving, I was introduced to an organization called Seoul English Study Association (SESA) and have been attending their monthly lectures ever since. SESA holds monthly lectures in English to introduce not only Koreans, but anyone who wants to attend, to many very interesting and thought-provoking topics.
It has featured numerous well-known Korean and non-Korean lecturers. In August, the special guest lecturer was Jeffrey Jones, former president of the American Chamber of Commerce in Korea and a well-known attorney who has lived here for many years. Some other former guest speakers were Robert Holley (an attorney and TV celebrity), Mark Pearson (deputy head of mission, New Zealand Embassy), Andrew Ha (professor, State University of New York), Don Christensen (principal, Seoul American Elementary School), Paul Gilmer (U.S. Embassy), Brad Buckwalter (CEO, Otis Elevator Korea), Canadian Ambassador Marius Grinius and more.
SESA meets on the fourth Thursday of every month; the next meeting is on Nov. 22. The lectures are very interesting and a good way to associate with not only Koreans but also people from around the world. I would encourage people to attend and make some new friends. Should you need more information, you can call Hubert Huh, secretary general/founder of SESA, (010) 3184-9266, or visit the Web site, http://cafe.daum.net/SESACITY.
