A week after The Trinity Forum ended, I’m back at the Pullman Bangkok King Power. The delegates have long gone home, the carnival is over. It is a strange, disorientating feeling.
I was welcomed back by the wonderful Pullman and King Power teams like a long lost son. I will never forget their kindness. Since then I have been taking it easy, sitting by the pool and recovering strength after nearly a week without solid food.
The fine doctors at Bumrungrad International Hospital have nailed the problem and I should be fit to travel home to the UK on Tuesday, all going well. In the meantime there are much worse places to be stuck than the Pullman, where, as Trinity delegates discovered, the facilities, management, staff and hospitality are superb. Has there ever been a better venue for The Trinity Forum? Has there ever been a better host than King Power? The answer to both questions is a resounding no.
I see last week’s unfortunate medical emergency as a temporary setback in a positive and long-term recovery. Now that I am out of hospital my spirits are high and I’m spending some necessary thinking time on getting the mix right between travel and that continued recovery through the balance of 2011 as my body eases its way back from the ravages of post-operative chemotherapy.
Not surprisingly, I have had plenty of advice from my friends in the industry, much of it of a cautionary nature. But I’m far from ready to be put out to pasture just yet. It’s simply a matter of achieving that most elusive of lifestyle targets – balance.
