Today has been all about networking, all about conversations:
1) Early for a coffee meeting in Kendall Square, surprised to find myself in conversation with a young woman from the Philippines here to check out business schools. Mother always taught me NOT to talk to strangers, so this was at least one instance of me moving outside my comfort zone.
2) Two separate meetings with longtime colleagues, a luncheon with passel of elderly alumni I've known for 15 years, face time with one of the deans at same, and it all feels good.
3) Tonight it's off to the Boston Spirit Magazine LGBT Executive Networking Night (what a tongue-twister!), and remembering to bring business cards.
BONUS: My hair has become a hybrid of Ann Sothern in Nancy Goes to Rio and Marilyn Quayle.
