K: Sure. My name’s Kaan. I’m from England and I run a digital media business back home. I also have a few start-up, uh, projects.
(on screen) *Why did you come to Dojo Bali?*
K: Yeah, sure. I wanted to be able to work abroad. Um, I’ve always, sort of, tried to work from cafes and stuff like that and, um, I heard about Dojo Bali, um, and it’s, sort of, community and location close to the surf which was really appealing. Um, I didn’t actually quite anticipate what it was going to be before I came.
(on screen) *What did you find at Dojo Bali?*
K: Yeah, I found something I didn’t actually anticipate. Um, apart from the community and, sort of, the support that you get with the events and education. It w-, exposure to s-, they’re almost like Ted Talks. Sort of mind expanding, um, topics and stuff like that. It’s not necessarily just marketing or about, you know, development and stuff like that. But what I actually found was what it feels like to be amongst people that are similar to you and at a similar place in life; something that I haven’t got at home and something that I’ve found here. Everyone is very inspirational very motivated and very switched on and intelligent and have similar aspirations.
(on screen) *What is the very best thing about Dojo Bali?*
K: Very best thing. Apart from its location, uh, I would definitely say it’s community. Um, it’s something, uh, well, I guess I answered that a little bit in my previous answer. It’s something that I didn’t really anticipate, hadn’t experienced before and it’s definitely something I’m gonna, sort of, chase and it’ll be with me for a while to be able to, sort of, I don’t know if I’ll better replicate it but, you know, it, it’ll be something I now require. (laughter)
(on screen) *What would you say to anyone thinking about coming to Dojo Bali?*
K: Just do it. Don’t think about it. Just book your flights and come now. We’re waiting for you. (elaborate applause) (laughter) Sorry. (laughter)
