I shared my experience as an entrepreneur in art business to Post Graduate Students of IMNI Business School, in 19 August 2007. It was quite an experience for me, since the students came from various background and they took different kinds of majors, not just Management or Business but also education, government administration etc. They also came from many cities including Papua. Guest lecture at IMNI Business School, August 2007
