Lunch Meeting with Dr Peter Velappan
I feel both honored and lucky to know and meet some great people in the world whose life journeys are both inspiring and motivating. Today had the honor of having lunch with Dato Dr Peter Velappan. He presented me with an autographed book of his and that was an icing on the proverbial cake.
In 1978, Dato Dr Velappan was appointed General Secretary of the AFC (Asian Football Confederation). He oversaw the entry of many member countries into the AFC during his tenure, which also saw Asia host its first ever FIFA World Cup. He was Coordination Director of the Organising Committee of the 2002 FIFA World Cup in South Korea and Japan.
After his retirement in 2007, he has been actively involved with many NGOs in fulfilling his social responsibilities.
May he keep inspiring us all for many many years to come.
