A few weeks ago I wrote a post entitled Reflections on the Philippines. In the post I share my insights on my recent trip to the country. Having spoken with the members of my team in Manila I realize that the post went to far. Not only were elements of the post exaggerated and embellished, much of it was down right insulting. Working with the people of the Philippines over the past year has been an incredible experience. I have written frequently about the passion and dedication of the people I have worked with there. As a result I plan to aggressively expand my operations and investment in the country in the coming months. But before I do I need to offer this apology for anyone who my post insulted.
