    the serious Swiss German audience I think it went well This should largely be credited to the team including Corey our faculty advisor who offered me very helpful feedback during the several dry runs we went through There was one snafu though and it occurred at the very beginning I was presenting with the display behind me and one of my teammates laptops in front of me controlling the powerpoint presentation While presenting one of the first slides a meeting reminder popped up on the laptop obscuring much of the screen It wasn t visible on the display behind me however so no one else knew about it As I contemplated whether or not just to continue presenting that way my mouth was on autopilot I was supposed to say that our objective for the meeting was to build a common platform of understanding from which to launch the rest of the project However what came out was a condom platform of understanding Oops After that though it was pretty smooth sailing We re glad to have Phase I behind us and today will immerse ourselves in Phase II conceiving an optimization model for warehouse locations and transportation costs within Europe Our next presentation is in 10 days bring it on Posted by Bryan Hassin at 01 17 Email This BlogThis Share to Twitter Share to Facebook Share to Pinterest Labels Corey Billington ICP imd supply chain 1 comment StartBreakingFree com said Haha Freudian slip I m sure you handled it like a pro Bryan Tuesday September 2 2008 at 3 26 00 PM EDT 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

    we were able to extract lots of useful information from them Not least did we learn that emulsion polymers are colloidal dispersions of polymers in an aqueous medium We expect that tidbit to be of critical importance in our future careers The Pandora buildings left quite an impression Bland from the outside they were sharp and very modern inside Maybe a little TOO modern the green bathroom was a bit much Speaking of green though all of their buildings had green roofs We thought this sustainability touch coupled with the absence of a single environmental incident over their 100 year corporate history was surprising and welcome coming from a chemical manufacturer Lunch was a refreshing break as we spent an hour chatting up our client The special of the day was Fleischkäs which ostensibly means meatloaf However this was like no meatloaf we had ever seen It was basically a huge hot dog sliced into crosswise sections and served with gravy It couldn t compete with IMD s lunches but what do you expect in the cafeteria of the local water works Unfortunately Corey had a long conference call and couldn t join us for lunch He had to settle for a cheese sandwich plus a Twix welcome to the consulting world Before hopping on the train to head back to Lausanne our group relaxed by the river for about 45 minutes We found a nice little café with outdoor seating and ordered a round of beer except for B ryan When told that they didn t have any dark beer he ordered Scotch whiskey instead The bourbon on the menu came from Tennessee so he didn t trust it Americans Despite the fact that he claimed to have had Macallan 12 year many times before this was the first time that it was served A in a champagne flute and B accompanied by dark Lindt chocolate a pairing that went quite well On the train ride home we abandoned project discussion to talk about careers Corey was helpful in providing some of his wisdom accumulated throughout his years at IBM HP and Silicon Valley start ups His 1 piece of advice to us sounded obvious but he assured us that each year he saw students not follow it avoid toxic companies work environments Avoid them like the plague If you love what you do and are in a nurturing environment there is no limit to what you can accomplish You should feel your energy going up every day If however you are in an exploitative unethical abusive or otherwise evil company your energy will go down and life will suck This project falls into the former category We are set to deliver millions of euros of value to our client we have tremendous faculty support from Corey and we are very positive as a team Despite the fact that the solution to our client s problem is non obvious our energy level for addressing it is increasing and we

  • The Green Knight: The Circle of Life
    suppose these things happen death is as natural a part of life as birth Then no sooner had I hit the send button than a new email arrived in my inbox It was from another friend of mine who was in the same circle of friends as those who had just lost their daughter However this email was to announce the birth of his son who entered this world just as the other was leaving I feel both sorrow and joy I feel conflicted I suppose this is akin to albeit much MUCH milder the mixture of grief and joy felt by a new father when the mother dies in childbirth Every end is a new beginning every time a door closes another is opened etc This pointed coincidence of timing illustrates something so simple about the natural cycle of birth and death yet so profound that I can t possibly articulate it in this entry Posted by Bryan Hassin at 16 41 Email This BlogThis Share to Twitter Share to Facebook Share to Pinterest Labels birth death life 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 3 September 2 August 1 July 1 June 2 May 2 April 1 March 2 February 2 January 11 2012
