During the two hour session the Dalai Lama shared his views on world events, spiritual matters and doing business with empathy. After the session, Sam was left feeling privileged after the spiritual leader singled him out for a conversation and a handshake. Sam commented:
“It was a dream come true to be personally asked a question by His Holiness the Dalai Lama and to end the chat with a handshake. During the session he kept all of us leaders captivated with his speech on a variety of topics that touch the lives of both people and business".
