What a month, October was. My trip to Toronto turned into a huge opportunity to meet bright-minded human beings, old friends and eventually enjoying a get-away vacation that one can never forget. And then, back to all the amazing projects, we are following up.
I travel not only to see beautiful places but more importantly to meet interesting human-beings. We discussed Toronto-Tehran opportunities with the business people, enjoyed the company of close friends who live on another side of the earth, and had a conversation with family relatives there on the topic of immigration. The cherry on top of my Toronto trip was to meet Dr. Ghomshei, whom I discussed my recent “shortcuts” article.
This month also, two of my interviews regarding the art of community-building have been published. The first one (the one you see on the left) is my conversation with Armin Zanboori published on City Articles magazine. It covers how and why the city authorities of cities like Rasht should adopt community-building and events. The second one (on the right) is a brief version of my conversation with the Modaam Group published on Herfeh Honarmand about the nature of community-building. Click on the photos below to read them.
Our team of partners at the Oppmakr Institute started their consulting project with Careem. This is no ordinary project! In March 2019, Uber acquired Careem for $3.1 Billion, and now we are lucky enough to work with their senior leadership team.
We have also started working with eSafar and planning to organize the nextTEDxTehranWomen before the Nowruz! Idearun is doing amazing and making success for its products one by one. To end the month and get ready for the next month, I went to Souri-Jaan Boutique Hotel in Kashan for its soft launch. It’s an amazing place to pause life and reflect. I hope we all enjoy the next month and activate opportunities in life.
