One of the greatest games ever invented is golf. There are a number of cheesy quotes from either Ben Hogan, Jack Nicklaus, or Happy Gilmore once said in reference to the game. Any way you look at it, golf is the best frustrating game out there.
Two days ago I sat in one of the most impressive presentations I have witnessed during my time here at Fisher. I was able to learn the story of success and failures of a popular American outdoor brand, Patagonia.
Chuck Gehring is passionate about his job and his company's mission. His passion is evident in the way he talks about his company and the role he plays in leading such an organization. Having him come and speak was a special treat for students in the Leadership Legacy course.
Last year I had the opportunity to participate in Fisher's Corporate Mentor program. The program pairs first year MBAs with local executives from Columbus that are interested in helping mentor and develop students in their chosen career field. I couldn't have asked for a better mentor last year and truly enjoyed the relationship we developed during the program. This year, I reached out to a first year student to gain their perspective and see if their experience was similar to mine.
The Fisher College of Business has been a great place for me to meet many students from various parts of the world. I have especially enjoyed learning more and more about the Indian culture. One way I have learned more about their culture is by participating in many of the student organizations' activities.
