We are happy to announce that nearly 350 proposals have already been
received from all over the world for the premiere year of the Global
Learn Conference to be held this coming May 17-20, 2010 in Penang,

wondrous venue with gorgeous views for one of the most unique

engaging conversations. Please let others know who may be interested or
