As the other scheduled speaker could not come I on short notice found myself with plenty of time with the Ashesi students, alumni and other young professionals. I chose to expand on my favorite topic – blogging.
I also shared some stories from my own brief career focusing on confidence, communication and character. An interactive discussion followed.
I was impressed when the participants wrapped up by taking turns with letting their peers know what they had taken from the session. So many insights, some work related stories, central messages and fine details.
It was a reminder that even if we sit in the same room, experience the same discussion, we’ll hear different things.
