Last evening I organised a big INSEAD get-together to welcome back my P1-P2 groupmate, RB, otherwise known as ‘the Professor’ - for giving some of us Finance tuition and also for topping the entire INSEAD cohort via mastery of the Z-curve. After travelling the world and making the rest of us jealous, he has taken on a ‘new look’ which will surprise you all.
It was heartwarming to see everyone again and meet a few new people - i.e. the ones who were mostly in Fonty whom I never really got to know. I’m convinced that, with such a large cohort split across 2 campuses (3 if you count Wharton) and relatively little time, it’s not possible to know everyone. But you can still try…
And I used to be paranoid about hosting anything on a large scale, because I didn’t think I was a natural at such things. But it isn’t so bad after all if you can simplify the work, like the choosing of food (we had an Indonesian buffet at Rice Table which catered to all diets) and getting others to help out.
Meanwhile I hear other INSEADers in other parts of the world are pining for some familiar company ;-) If things aren’t so happening where you are, then why not organise a gathering of your own? Or, maybe it’s time to pay some of us a visit!
