I want to start INFORMS over again
There are two ways to start over: 1. Go back in time 15+ years ago when I came to INFORMS for the 1st time, and 2. Become 15 years younger today. I choose the 2nd option. I can’t remember if 15 years ago we at INFORMS had all the networking opportunities that today’s members have. Definitely then we did not have Speed Mentoring event that I was invited this year to mentor students. In this 10 minutes group Q&A with 4 rounds students choose to network with mentors based on their interests. Inspirations from so many presenters they got was priceless. Of course ask “More to Moore” (this is not a typo, I mean Melissa Moore ) gave everyone in a room laugh. The most popular question was how I started my own consulting business. If you want to know the story you have to find me and chat with me. The best question I got to answer was what would I change if I were to go back in time, I said I would network more, and also I would network more, and instead of going back I want to be 15 years younger, and start INFORMS over again!
