End of a Financial saga... PM Najib cleared

During my time trying to get my proposal off the ground, I have had the privilege of presenting at ASLI Automotive conference 2010.
It was there I met for a photo op with the ex PM of Malaysia, Tun Mahathir.

He has been very vocal about the present PM of Malaysia. They do not see eye to eye over a personal donation received by PM Najib Razak.

This issue has now officially been resolved...

Why am I referring to this in a non political blog? Because Tun Mahathir is also Chairman of Lotus Cars.

I have always seen Lotus and Proton as potential partners in my proposal.

Whilst I do not expect Tun Mahathir to necessarily agree with the official decision, it is what it is.

When the dust settles, he may want to revisit my proposal.

Once again this is not a political blog, I just felt that this latest development may have an impact on my proposal. I am not judging the rights and wrongs of this.

Well done Jennifer

I normally write about my educational proposal. It is still a dream waiting to happen!

Today, I had a look at Linkedin, they offered me a paid subscription again.
One of my contacts, Jennifer is now a GM Director. She was in Korea for a couple of years, and was I believe instrumental in bringing the new GM Bolt to production. Well done.

I know people who have joined Electric Car start ups. Other than Tesla I don't see how they will compete the large OEM's.

GM first built an all electric vehicle the EV1 while I was working on contract for Saturn (now defunct GM brand). I saw a few driving on the roads. They had some in the Saturn Tech Centre.

They could do about 50 miles on a charge, and were not available for sale only for lease.

I am a little biased, Jennifer is a very nice person. We worked in Troy Michigan and Ruesselsheim Germany together. But, I am sure that this new Electric vehicle will be a success.

If it can really do 200 miles on a charge, and doesn't need a special power point to charge, it will be a winner.

Time will tell.

Happy New Year 2016. Wish me luck!

Happy New Year to everyone.
Its been a long time since I first proposed a track based training facility in Lotus. My then boss could not see the potential. I was not surprised, however as time has passed it has made more and more sense to me.
This project will require deep pockets to get started, however as we would no longer be first adopters, we can now see how others approach this.
In a recent blog I added a football based University video. They are looking to widen their scope, so theoretically, track based campuses combined with Football based campuses adding online learning into the mix would work.
Just a thought.
Obviously football supports Business and Marketing courses++. Motorsport adds Design,Engineering,plus a plethora of associated subjects.
Here is my old Marketing logo as a visual:
and once again a video from the football University.
Hopefully, people can begin to see what I am trying to do.
Wish me luck!
