Visit to Perth, Penang and Ho Chi Minh

From November 21st to December 13th 2018 I had a visiting professor period at the Edith Cowan University, Perth Australia. I was teaching a class of Global Marketing in the Digital World. On the last day of lectures students also presented their case studies which they have been working on for the two weeks. One of the groups focused their case on Cadbury Chocolate. Below a picture of me with Cadbury Freddo mascots and some of the students

Besides, teaching I also gave invited guest lecture for the faculty on the topic of using live cases for teaching, industry collaboration and research. Also managed to take this nice picture outside my hotel but never had a change to have a swim.

After Perth I had layover in Singapore and interviewed a doctoral student candidate and continued to Malaysia, Penang by bus and ferry 🙂

Enjoyed lots of cafe latte and street art in Penang.

Before I started my teaching in Perth I manged to have a holiday in Vietnam in Ho Chi Minh. Below a picture from the Reunification palace

Usually, I try to spot some unique buildings and this Pink Church caught my eye.

Besides the city life I also enjoyed the Mekong river with one day river cruise. Before jumping to boat spotted this Buddha statue.

I think I have visited Perth close to 10 times and it always feels like second home. It was my first time in Vietnam and people were really friendly and always smiling. Penang was full of street art and it was fun to watch tourist from tour boats and elsewhere running from one piece of street art to the next – Gotta Cath ´Em all.
