About 2.5 years ago, I was trying to start a new business (it never got legs!) and was therefore meeting a lot of influential people as part of it.
One of those meetings took me to a lunch meeting with a very high powered CEO who was also an ex-AIESECer I had never met.
What was meant to be a one hour chat, ended up being a 3 hour conversation with loads of ideas, lots of thoughts and a whole load of fun discussions that have since led to a strong friendship, a working relationship and a mentoring aspect.
I am absolutely delighted that a simple email could open up so much! I was on a high that day from the lunch and I am on a high today on the memory.
