2010 Delegation to Sri Lanka

A delegation of AAPN members took part in the second annual Sri Lanka Design Festival, November 11-16, 2010.

Attendees from AAPN: Fernando Capellan & Anibel Capellan, Grupo M; Juan Zighelboim & David Ha, TexOps; Sue Strickland & Mike Todaro, AAPN.

While there, AAPN toured MAS Industries, Hirdaramani Group Mihila Eco factory and Brandix, the ‘greenest’, most eco leading factories in the world, built ground up for precisely that purpose.

This trip was a life altering experience. You can bet that Grupo M and TexOps are two companies who before you know it, will take what they have already done and add to it what they learned from their peers there to make their companies greener, INCLUDING their bottom line.

As Juan Zighelboim of TexOps wrote in sharing a fabulous quote from Tom Peters, “Brand YOU is wholly dependent on a GREAT NETWORK. Therefore Brand YOU is tightly linked to un-selfishness.” Juan added, “Talk about network and unselfishness...we experienced quite a bit of that in Sri Lanka.”
