Speaking: ACS Mix&Mingle 2

I’m back…I did this speaking gig last year. And like last year the food is still excellent food.

Ryerson’s ACS department hosted an event last night: The ACS Mix&Mingle.

Young professionals (professional…hah! I’m wearing a Spider-Man seatbelt belt) mixed and mingled with ACS students to discuss one on one how they got to where they did in their career.

It’s fascinating hearing the kids…they have twitter and LinkedIn all this access I did not…I barely had an email address by the time I graduated.

Posts, blog and musings.
Events, gigs and appearances.
