Dear High Tide readers,

Hi, my name is Matt Friedman. I am an international human trafficking expert with more than 30 years of experience working in over 40 countries. I am the CEO of The Mekong Club, an organization of Hong Kong’s leading businesses which have joined forces to help end all forms of modern slavery. In addition to my day job, I am also an inspirational and motivational Keynote Speaker, career coach, filmmaker and author of 12 books. Each year, I give around 175 speeches to corporations, schools, faith-based groups and the general public in Hong Kong and around the world to raise awareness about the important human rights topics of our time. I regularly offer technical advice to numerous governments, banks and corporations working to eliminate all forms of modern slavery. If you’d like to get in touch, please email me at msfman1@yahoo.com or reach out on LinkedIn.
