Summary

C.Y. Chong's captivating and insightful revelation about what it's like to spend over two decades at WWF.

This light-hearted collection of memoirs tells the compelling story of a company executive who walked away from global corporations and immersed himself in the world of non-profit; in this case, WWF, one of the world's largest conservation organizations.

After years of working in the corporate sector, C.Y. Chong decided to pursue a new avenue of work. He joined WWF International as a finance manager and was soon promoted to director of finance; however, this audiobook is about his non-financial experiences.

Life on Planet WWF follows Chong as he travels and tells of a myriad of interesting and unforgettable happenings; being attacked by a mad crow being one. From fitting the letters "WWF" into a television interview as many times as possible, to having cocktails with HRH Prince Philip, he recalls visits to conferences, field projects, or other events - each anecdote providing a unique insight into some of his truly extraordinary experiences at WWF.

This book makes an interesting listen for anyone thinking about a career outside the corporate sector as well as for the five million supporters of WWF and everything it stands for.
