Bangkok on the up-and-up

#EventprofReads: Week 40

Here’s the latest #EventprofReads roundup, curated for you by The Guide to Events on Twitter and the Eventprofs London LinkedIn group. Please share with colleagues and add your comments. We hope you enjoy!  Here’s what we learned this week…

That after a couple of wobbly years and a military coup, Bangkok’s on the up-and-up again, from C&MW:

“… IMPACT Muang Thong Thani plans to invest over 10bn baht worth of structure projects that will promote a tourism hub in the centre, opening for business in March.”

How to launch a killer email newsletter for improved engagement, in Fast Company:

“…The easiest way to stand out is to be the only new email in a user’s inbox. Scope out your competitors and pick a send time that doesn’t overlap with theirs.”

That Iran is at the centre of China’s trillion-dollar global infrastructure investment, in The New York Times:

“…China is dominating Iran … Iranian authorities do not see any drawbacks to being dependent on China. Together, we are moving ahead.”

How to regain control of your life (by switching off your push notifications), according to Wired:

“Smartphones aren’t the problem. It’s all the buzzing and dinging, endlessly calling for your attention. A Deloitte study in 2016 found that people look at their phones 47 times a day on average; for young people, more like 82.”

And finally… Why working harder won’t get you that promotion, from Fast Company:

“…If you work hard to the point of burnout, you train yourself to value work for work’s sake.”
