On the call today, you asked for opinions and guidance of where Chris Mondni 
should be going with the local Business Engagement events.

Most previous events have seen a very low turnout of local business leaders.
I appreciate it is difficult to organize remotely but we need attendance of 
100+ to make this worthwhile to do outreach for ICANN, for the BC, and for 

The only way is via local business organizations such as Chamber of Commerce 
and get them on board and excited anout a meeting for their members  that ICANN 
funds.   It is an opportunity for their members to learn about ICANN and BC and 
meet us, the travelling business people in town.

I am member of a number of chambers, and I am thinking about it from the other 
side.  If it was properly and well advance promoted within the Chamber there 
would be a good turnout.   Perhaps that needs a Chamber committee member well 
on board.     If not and the invite is just emails and phone calls then the 
chamber might just send a few along as a courtesy.  I don't know the 
organizational route to date but the outcome in the past has been the latter.

Again it may need a ICANN and/or BC member to make an advance visit to 
personally meet and present to the chamber committee and get them so on board.

Too late for Singapore but in time for London and LA.
