Global Sport Education is being supported by Global brands

There have been many boundaries to me getting this project off the ground.
I don't have access to millions or billions, and so I can't self fund. I therefore have to sell a project which is linked to me.
When I first mooted this proposal, I was asked some questions which showed to me that people did not grasp what my proposal entailed. There were those who felt that having jockeyed me into a training role, they had succeeded in getting in rid of me. This was true. They were only interested in one thing.
Sadly, I have not managed to get a mentor. Someone to assist, and help finance my proposal.
ASLI, (Asean Strategic Leadership Institute) offered me the chance to present, which I took. Many thanks to Kenanga Simon and her team.

Here is a visual of how much online learning has grown between 2002 and 20012.
This chart is USA based.

Most people believe half the worlds present population will be internet connected by 2020. This is in excess of 3 billion people.

Most countries, developed or otherwise are keen to develop their IT infrastructure. Wi-Fi is common in many counties.

By combining strategically located physical campuses with on-line learning I see a sustainable business model emerging.

I do not think with all due respect, that this is difficult to visualise.

Once again, here is a video of a British based Football centric University based in Burnley and Wembley stadium's... plus Real Madrid's Bernabeu... Plus?

These forward thinking people are widening their educational scope to include other sports. Good luck to them!

The problem with Private Pension funds QED inc and Hawtal Whiting inc (update)

UPDATE:Should anyone have 401K accounts with Hawtal Whiting inc or QED inc. This link is for Michigan non claimed accounts:,1607,7-121-44435---,00.html
You will have to fill in a form countersigned by a Michigan notary public. Which if you are not based in Michigan could be problematic.

I have never been a civil servant. I have been employed by commercial companies.

Fords were my first major company. They have not gone bankrupt. I have access to any future and present pension information. It is open and accessible.

For many years I worked in America. They have proper pension plans, as in civil service/Ford type plans, and savings plans called 401K's.

Two of the companies I worked no longer exist. One was sold on... Hawtal Whiting USA. This was first sold to Rapid Design, and then sold on again. I am sure that the 401K exists... I just don't know where!

The second, QED inc Troy, Michigan.
CLICK HERE to see what I found on the internet.
When I worked for QED there was some problems with the funds not being paid in on time. The Office Manager at the time, who I will not name, assured everyone this was an oversight, and all funds would be paid in. TRUST ME...

Sadly, the first term that springs to mind when I think about QED is dodgy. I'm sure some very decent honest people will find themselves out of pocket.

Anyone reading this with any insight on whom to contact regarding these plans, please feel free to add the info as a comment.
