Last minute details and wrap-ups
Hello all!!! This is the week that I get to meet all of you in person! I am very excited about how we all will share, learn and grow together during this program. Please read this and let me know if you have any questions.
Arrival & Customs
I am going to meet you at the airport.
You will be arriving at Don Mueang Airport.
For customs you will need to provide the following address:
Thammasat University Dormitory
99 Paholyothin Road, Klong-loung District, Pathumthani Province, 12121, Thailand
After you go through customs, you will need to get any checked bags. When you exit you will see me standing there waiting for you!
Here are the arrival times of those flying into Bangkok:
- 3pm Arrival: Khin Chit, Yin yin & Ye ko (will take a taxi to Thammasat with our Thai intern, Nook and I will stay at the airport to meet Bao & Vu)
- 5:20pm Arrival: Bao & Vu (we will take a taxi together to Thammasat and then meet the others there for dinner)
- Toon you are welcome to meet me at the airport at 5:20 and ride with us in the taxi or you can meet us at Thammasat.
Please make sure to complete these activities before coming! The first one you should have completed by now. The second and third are new, but not difficult.
Activity 1: My best leadership experience
Remember to email me your story before you arrive. We will be using these stories in a workshop on your second day.
Activity 2: Individual Inspiration
Please see below for instructions on this short activity.
Activity 3: My culture
Please bring something small with you to share about your own culture and yourself. This could be pictures of your family, a small souvenir or anything you think will be useful to share when talking about yourself and your culture.
Leadership Activity 2
I want us to have an amazing and impactful journey together. Therefore, I would like to ask that each of you be ready to tell us a little bit about one of your favorite leaders. This person does not have to be famous and could even be someone you know. Think about who inspires you and how they inspire you. Maybe you have a favorite quote from this person you want to share or an interesting story. Please think about it and then each morning in small groups, one person will share with their group their favorite leader. You do not need to email me anything, just come prepared to share.
Below is one of my favorite leaders and an inspirational quote from him.
What to bring
Please bring ONE SUITCASE AND ONE SMALL BAG ONLY. Don't pack too much! If you can't carry it easily, it is too heavy. Here are some reminders for what to pack. Remember it is hot outside, but many places use the air conditioner inside making it cold too!
T-shirts, long-sleeved shirts, sweater or jacket
Pants, shorts, skirts
comfortable shoes for walking
A nice outfit to wear to organization visits and for the final dinner (it can be the same - we will have access to laundry)
