Back In School
I was back in school yesterday. Presenting to an MBA class at Queen’s University in Kingston. The presentation itself was timed for about an hour and then I left it open for questions.
Lots of questions.
I was on my feet for another 90 minutes or so responding to a battery of questions from the class.
The whole experience brought back memories of the years I spent teaching. I so enjoyed the dynamics of an actively engaged class. It has been over 25 years since I left the classroom. I’ve had a number of opportunities to act as a guest lecturer over the past 25 years and I always thoroughly enjoy the experience. That said, I do not recall a class quite so attentive and focused as this one. Very active in the Q&A session. And some great questions.
If I may pry, (knowing you as I do being an expert is so may fields, (technology architecture, photography, cycling, music, life, the list goes on and on….) may I enquire as to the topic you spoke to the students about? 🙂
I was presenting as part of the work I do for my company. I quite enjoyed the high degree of participation from the class. Very bright students.
