Young professionals talk about "working for the man"

Thursday's luncheon dine around had a diverse and cozy group that luckily included some locals. Both our planned restaurant and our backup were out of business, the resident Portlandians led us to good eats. While we all came from diverse backgrounds, we had a lively discussion about challenges (and rewards) of being public historians working in the government sector. The lunch format worked so well for a business style discussion, and having it in the midst of the day dedicated to events and panels about graduate students and young professionals certainly helped set the tone.

Also, as young professionals it was helpful to begin to do some networking outside of academia but with public history trained/minded fellow professionals. I found that those discussions shaped the way that I approached sessions later in the conference where the subject or the participants were government product related.

Personally, I hope that we see more luncheon dine arounds at future conferences and that this forum for government sector public historians continues to find a place in the schedule of events.

  2. You can find knowledge in various discussion. Well the hope for the future lies on the young professionals, some of them might become great strategic business consultants which we badly needed for the global problem.

  3. I think you've made your point clear enough, well the most important thing is business transformation right.

  4. I think that's good. We all know how Toshiba works and based on what is going to happen it will take another step of success, another big business transformation for this company.
