Today, for the first time, I attended an online meetup of the Introverts Network Asia (INA) via the Zoom video chat app.
Introverts Network Asia was birthed in Singapore by founder Mervin Yeo. It is a professional networking platform for introverts that aims to provide them with networking, training, mentoring and self-development programs.
So I signed up. 🙂
Currently, the group has many introvert members across four Asian countries — Singapore, Indonesia, Malaysia and the Philippines.
But today’s online meetup was a very manageable and cozy group of 8 participants with the founder, the country representative for the Philippines, some old members, and a couple of us newcomers.
Of course, this is not how they normally do their gatherings.
But then it’s April 2020 and, because of the novel corona virus pandemic, many of us are on Enhanced Community Quarantine, Lockdown, or Circuit Breaker (as they call it in Singapore).
They’re planning another online meetup for Tuesday. I think I’ll join them. 🙂
Sort of related post: Can you Coach on Mindset and Performance? is a quick post based on my Twitter tweets that were triggered by a wrong understanding of introversion by someone presenting himself as some kind of expert or Coach.
