Just back from the Far East and in Singapore I happily met Mark McGeoch (OW 1974) who lives in the wonderful city. My photo shows me and Mrs Chairman next to Jessica and her partner Mark.
Mark has had Singapore connections for over ten years and for the last five has been based there full time as Director (Global Construction Practice) with Navigant, the US specialised expert services firm. He provides expert advice in major construction disputes across a region in which, as we saw ourselves, concrete is being poured ever faster and higher.
Mark and Jessica met over Mandarin tuition and they guided us round the menu of an excellent local restaurant. The only setback was the high price of alcohol in the abstemious Republic; Mark advised that the best way to forget about this is to have another beer, so we did and a fine evening was had by all.
