  • The Green Knight: Halloween
    Kombat fame Nick and I used to spend hours and hours playing Mortal Kombat on his Sega Genesis My favorite character from the game was Raiden but unfortunately my running clothes didn t look at all like his outfit So I went as Subzero covering my face and head such that only my eyes were revealed The Halloween party itself was pretty tame The organizers did a great job of converting the IMD dungeons where we spent most of our lives during the first part of the year into real dungeons People got into it and it was fun to guess who was behind the costumes My face covering forced me to drink through a straw all night which made taking shots interesting but I managed Still I turned in by midnight not exactly my Halloween party experience of yore It s good that I did though as I was able to wake up early today rehearse my ICP presentation go for a run and finish Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire which is my favorite of the books so far Tonight I ll head to bed early again as we have an early train to catch to our client s headquarters in Zurich and I d like to run through the presentation one more time before we leave Posted by Bryan Hassin at 14 41 Email This BlogThis Share to Twitter Share to Facebook Share to Pinterest Labels Halloween ICP imd Lausanne Mortal Kombat Nightwing Subzero 1 comment Anonymous said All I can say is GET OVER HERE Nick a k a Scorpion Monday December 1 2008 at 7 44 00 PM EST Post a Comment Newer Post Older Post Home Subscribe to Post Comments Atom About Me Bryan Hassin Cleantech entrepreneur with global experience Rice Owl IMD

  • The Green Knight: Lausanne Marathon
    He finished just under his target time of 4 hours Then we doubled back and met up with Sergei my Belarussian teammate from the first building block about two miles from the finish of the half marathon also in front of the Olympic museum He was in strong form so we just paced him and tried to spur him on at the end He finished well under his target time of 2 hours We then turned around to go back for Alex my Chinese teammate also from the first building block who had expected to come in far behind Sergei Before I could make my way through the throng however Alex had arrived just over 2 hours and apparently hadn t needed any additional motivation Even if our participation didn t make one iota of difference it felt good to support our friends We ve all been through a lot together so supporting each other in our various endeavors comes naturally I expect it will continue long after graduation in December Pictures are in my facebook album Posted by Bryan Hassin at 12 52 Email This BlogThis Share to Twitter Share to Facebook Share to Pinterest Labels Lausanne running No comments Post a Comment Newer Post Older Post Home Subscribe to Post Comments Atom About Me Bryan Hassin Cleantech entrepreneur with global experience Rice Owl IMD alum and lover of both wine and sports View my complete profile Google Badge Twitter Blog Archive 2016 1 January 1 2015 28 December 3 November 1 October 2 September 5 August 1 July 1 June 4 May 1 April 3 March 2 February 3 January 2 2014 26 November 4 October 3 August 3 July 3 June 7 April 1 March 3 February 1 January 1 2013 32 December 2 November 3 October

  • The Green Knight: Google Interview
    day just mutually participatory discussions many of which left me feeling really excited It really felt like the discussions Alex or others and I would frequently have about the future of products technologies and consumer behaviors Sometimes those discussions would be about near term ideas and sometimes they were a little more science fiction y Google seems like one of the few organizations with so much talent resources users that it can take real steps toward making the sci fi ideas reality At the end of the interviews I was informed that I had accessed the secret bonus round and would have two more interviews with Product Management Directors Although I characterized Italians as lazy to one of them who turned out to be Italian himself despite having a very German sounding name I thoroughly enjoyed those discussions as well I stumbled a few times throughout the day For example some of my interviewers challenged me about my stated objective of helping to change the world of energy and how on earth working at Google would accomplish that My responses weren t terribly eloquent or convincing there shame on me for not preparing better Still after seven interviews I finished the day at 7 PM feeling very positive These really felt like my kind of people In my experience there s a certain kind of magic that comes from a great team Someone starts a discussion with an idea others critique it react to it and add their own ideas The level of frenetic excitement rises until everyone decides that the idea has to be pursued and then they all get down to business This was the type of entropy I felt in my discussions all day which was a very positive sign In many ways yesterday was like my IMD interview day I came in not really knowing what to expect The day was set up to simulate some of the daily challenges encountered by the position for which I was interviewing I had great enlightening discussions with a bunch of really smart diverse people I left still thinking about the discussions and generating new ideas that I wished I had brought up during the interviews but feeling energized able to visualize myself contributing to and benefiting from such an environment and hoping they felt the same way Oh right and I had an awesome lunch So we shall see After the interviews I met up with a friend of mine in Zurich for dinner overlooking the city at night beautiful and drinks at a cigar bar by the train station Zurich seems like a really nice town that has the amenities that come with a major urban area very international airport and accomplished arts for example without many of the drawbacks high crime for example It s certainly not a cheap place to live but it also has one of the highest quality of life rankings in the world Again we shall see Pictures are in my facebook
