A Day in Paul Wordley’s Life
While talking about his daily routine, Mr Wordley said, “When working I spend a couple of hours on emails and conference calls, the timing of which depends on where in the world the client is. Then I will catch up with colleagues with whom I am working on matters. Usually, I will find some time to work on a particular matter or piece of work. My downtime is spent reading and exercising.”
“Prisoners of Geography and its sequel Power of Geography which I am reading now are two of the most thoughtful and influential books on how geography has shaped the geopolitical landscape in the past and how it will influence it going forward through this century,” shared Mr Wordley on being asked about his recent favourite book.
