The Napoleon Hill International Convention (NHIC) was held in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.
I was honored to be one of the featured speakers.
The convention was put on by Christina Chia and her organization with Napoleon Hill Associates.
Along with the 2 day convention, about 30 people from around the world participated in a 7 day tour of the country.
Along for the convention and the trip was Dr. James Blair (JB) Hill, grandson of Napoleon Hill, and Don Green, Executive Director of the Napoleon Hill Foundation.
Napoleon Hill The Musical, directed by JD Menon, also played for a week as part of the Convention. It was very well done and was a moving play about the life of Hill.

Judy Williamson, Director of the Napoleon Hill World Learning Center at Purdue University Calumet as well as Uriel (Chino) Martinez, Judy's Assistant also spoke at the event. They are 2 of my favorite people in the world.
Chino is the Author of Lessons of The Labyrinth and he spoke about their importance and prominence around the world. I have participated in about 6 labyrinth walks with Chino and I they have all been profound experiences.
This was the third convention put on by Christina Chia. The keynote speaker in 2012 was Charlie Tremendous Jones, in what was to be his last public appearance.
As part of the Convention, Christina Chia put on a Gala Dinner. It was also a celebration of the 25th year of her law firm.
Christina hired a very well known entertainer in Malaysia for the event. He did impersonations and the crowd loved him.
