Welcome to The Lotus Talks!
Hi, let me introduce myself: I am Granger Whitelaw, CEO of the Vietnam Group and I host THE LOTUS TALKS podcast along with my Co-Podcaster Cameron Lynch, and various members of our team from time to time. Our message is about the People and the Companies in Vietnam and S.E. Asia that are making a difference, or “Doing good while doing well” as I like to say.
The S.E. Asia (ASEAN Market) is the fastest growing region in the world right now, and Vietnam is at the center of it all. Just watch any news channel, any day, and you will hear about the growth, the people, the opportunities and the excitement. As we introduce you to the interesting people we meet, the wonderful things they are doing, and the great companies they are building, we hope it can encourage you and perhaps help with your planning, as you join the “golden Age of S.E. Asia”. The truth is discovered in the stories of people working day-to-day from hard times to joy, failure to success, and all that happens in between when you are running ahead in fast paced, high growth environment. We are here to take this ride with you, curves, bump, (pot-holes) and all!The more we can learn about how people and companies get through the tough decisions, the better equipped we are to make smart choices and find our own success

Vietnam’s First Business Pod Cast
Have greatly enjoyed listening to Granger and Cam informative Pod Cast about what’s happening in the Business Scene In Vietnam and learning about the Shakers & Movers.
Granger’s vast international experience also gives him great insight into how the Vietnamese Market will likely develop.
As someone who has been doing business here for 25 plus years it’s great to be exposed to the New Vietnam which is really just in its infancy in so many ways. Old dogs can learn new tricks!
This Podcast and the other resources provided by The Vietnam Group would be especially useful for people looking enter this market to get a lay of the Land.
