Ok, the name of my blog is no longer up2date, 'warm' (all is relative), wet Oxford with its ancient old college buildings and supermodern Said Business School has been replaced with one of the lowest density populated countries in the world: Canada!

Compare 9,330,970 sq km of land mass and only 32 million people with the Netherlands 41,526 sq km and 16 million people!! This means that a person in Canada roughly has about a 100 times more space than a Dutch person. Or put it differently, imagine only 10,000 people living in the city of Amsterdam! Go to a regular Ajax game currently and you should be able to witness the sensation...

Now you understand why Canadians are allowed to drive huge pickup trucks, hummers and SUVs. they simply have the space for it. See below...

I have moved to Calgary after my MBA to start a company together fellow MBA Sean (left in pic) and a friend of him, Mike. The company focuses on renewable energy, particularly geothermal. I will explain more about this in later updates as I don't have a lot of time now. I'm very excited to start this business, the opportunity is great, now we have to make it work!!
My goal of moving to North-America after my MBA has been achieved! My next goal will take a bit of time, I'll keep that one to myself for now...
Check back soon, all the best!
