Global Zero Nuclear Summit rules the world at The Savoy Hotel in June 2011

Global Zero Rules - Books not Nukes!



Last week we helped organise a wonderful Summit at the Savoy Hotel for some of the most cordial & forward thinking American Clients I have ever come across. The cause was to discuss the global disarmament of nuclear weapons.

We had some great brains involved including Dr Bruce Blair, Mr. Matthew Brown, Mr. Derek Johnson, Mr. Tom Hampson-Bellon, Rt. Hon Dr Hans Blix, Dr Jennifer Allen Simons, Rt Hon Magaret Beckett, HRH Queen Noor of Jordon, Baron Des Brown, Sir Malcolm Rifkin, Lawrence Bender, Ambassador Richard Burt, Ex CIA Agent Valerie Plame Wilson, Rt Hon. George Carey ( all blinged up), Air Marshal Ajit Bhavnani, Hon. Keiichiro Asao, Maj. Gen. Pavel Zolotarev & Mr Raymon Frankel to name but a few......

Here is how it was broken down:

100 International Leaders Launch Global Zero Campaign To Eliminate Nuclear Weapons

Distinguished Group Developing Step-by-Step Plan for Phased, Verified Reductions to Zero Nuclear Weapons

Leaders Agree That Eliminating Nuclear Weapons Is Only Way To Stop Proliferation and That a Special Russia-U.S. Partnership is Needed

New Worldwide Poll Shows Overwhelming Support For Getting To Zero Nuclear Weapons

One of the most interesting Summits I have ever had the honor of being part of.....

Keep flying the flag Derek, Caitlin, Holly, Shing, Galit, Drew, Trevor, John Michael & the GZ crew!

Pictures will follow - Thank you God!!!!

We have been asked to market a very exciting new property project in the heart of Nigeria which is innovative and most futuristic. It is called "The One", which comprises of new aged Apartments run as Hotel rooms & suites. The mother company may have it's critics and sceptics but all must realise this daring enterprise is the future - so embrace it and get involved as the apartments are going fast! I am all for commercial progression when with the right due diligence it will in time better the property markets allure of investing in Nigeria as a whole.

Virgin Galactic In Space Edutainment Experience - Any takers?

A few weeks back we were priviledged enough to organise an edutainment experience event for a cherished Client hosted by Stephen Attenborough, Commercial Director of Vigin Galactic. WOW! $2000,000 to be a space tourist and already over 200 signed up passengers. I think I would when I can! Especially when the return to earth's Shuttlecock Theory .

Good work Sir Richard & the Cosmic Crew:

When you watch a space shuttle launch or see old video clips of the Apollo moon landings, you may dream of flying into outer space. In the past, that privilege has been reserved for highly trained astronauts and a few high-paying passengers. But the dream could become a reality for more people as a new space liner called Virgin Galactic sets up shop. You'll just need to scrape up about $100,000 first. True, that's not cheap, but it's a whole lot better than the $25 million that other space tourists have paid.

Virgin Galactic is the brainchild of British billionaire Sir Richard Branson. He has partnered with Burt Rutan, the designer of Ansari X Prize-winner SpaceShipOne, to build a fleet of spacecraft that will carry paying passengers into outer space and back.

Curiosity Project: How high will Virgin Galactic fly?
Virgin Galactic has licensed the designs and technologies of SpaceShipOne to create two new ships, SpaceShipTwo and WhiteKnightTwo (the turbo jet that carries SpaceShipTwo into the air). The ships were unveiled in January 2008, but passengers have been signing up since 2005. And sometime around 2010, they'll finally be launching into space.
SpaceShipTwo takes passengers on a wild two-and-a-half-hour flight, blasting them 360,000 feet (109,728 meters) above the Earth and giving them a four- to five-minute zero-gravity experience (and, as an added bonus, passengers officially become astronauts by traveling more than 50 miles (80 kilometers) into space). After the brief suborbital flight, the spacecraft re-enters the atmosphere and glides back to Earth.
Both Rutan and Branson believe that the success of their designs has opened the door to space tourism, that tourist flights can be done safely and that the space tourism industry will be successful. So, how do these new spaceships work, exactly? How safe are they? And how do you score a spot on a Virgin Galactic flight?

This trip to Nigeria was filled with anticipation as there were solid projects of Govt. Events & Property Marketing Projects I was going to work on. Destined for both Lagos & Abuja I was ready for action. Most people outside Nigeria think it is such a barbarous & chaotic place. Although there may be a slight hint of the above it is no way anywhere close to the those nightmares we see & hear of in the media. There are still the masses whom are under the suppressive yoke of International Finance, Corruption & Oil Deals but it is getting better thanks to the likes of our President Goodluck Jonation & the youthful Governor of Lagos State Babatunde Fashola. There is light at the end of the tunnel!

I was also quite excited to return as every time I go home I always seem to be in the middle of some interesting functions or phenomenons. This time I was not disappointed once again as I was invited to a great Art Exhibition in Lagos by the enchanting Mrs Oskar (Wanda) Ibru transporting across their super yacht along the lakes to the Art Gallery. Lagos is such a fervant & triving market for African paintings, sculptures & artefacts ....... we are going through a blinding renaissance that I hope will also yield positive returns to the Artists themselves.

I also went with Olorugun Oskar Ibru to a Nollywood & Music Studio Launch in Badaga, Lagos called J3 Media which was not only impressive & spriritually filling but should actually work......Viva Innovation & Multimedia Services.

Abuja bound I was fortunate enough to have my good Friend Kunle O at hand as a guide and host during my property site visit to "The One" Hotel Appartments fopr which I am an Agent.

Nigeria is slowly but most distinctly moving in the right direction - all we need to do is find a way to work together to quicken the pace!!

Viva Nigeria!

A little prayer goes a long way......
