Q: What is a funny story from your career?
A: I was working for another company, I was sent to Europe for two weeks to find the best location for a new manufacturing site. I visited many places and came back to present the recommendation to the owner. Back then we used printed transparencies, no Power Point. I must have had 50 slides prepared. I put the final recommendation on the first slide, because he always wanted to see the conclusion(s) first, and then listen to the justification why. He looked at the first slide, and said, yes, I agree that is obviously the best option, and told me to sit down. Meeting over. $5,000 trip, a week of producing slides, and he already knew the answer.
