Director of World Intellectual Property Organization is a Yogi
[ABSTRACT] FRANCIS Gurry is a patient listener. And when he talks, he does so in a slow and measured tone – the hallmark of a person trained in the diplomatic art of thinking before leaping. Both attributes are invaluable for a man who’s the director-general of WIPO (World Intellectual Property Organization), the global body which oversees the protection of intellectual property (IP).
“To help himself de-stress, Dr Gurry does yoga everyday and swims as often asssible. ‘And, obviously, family is an extremely important part of my life,'”
