An evening with Kim Gooi
FRIDAY, 3 OCTOBER at 8:00PM at SINKEH, 105 Lebuh Melayu, PENANG.
Kim Gooi talks about life as a freelance journalist covering the region; incarceration in Burma; the surprise and unlikely friendship with Tunku; Photojournalism (eye for photography); from his book “Poet of Keng Tung Jail”.
How good health, focus and a calm and steady mind and empathy is important for success.
And lastly competing with the best in the world.
Kim Gooi worked for major TV networks in the US, UK, Australia, Europe, Japan, Korea, Hong Kong and contributing articles to the region’s newspapers. Additionally, he is the stringer for Time magazine and New York Times. The last bit he considers with a tinge of pride as they were the richest and most powerful print media, and it gives him an insight into the American media control of world news.
