My Business Plan - Bittersweet Alumni Visit

Today was Drucker Day at my school where I got my MBA. So I went to see some old friends. Hard to believe I graduated 10 years ago. Friends asked me how old my daughter was, the one who almost tripped Peter Drucker when she was 2 or 3 (which is how I met him), and I told them a Sophomore in High School, and they were surprised. I have a two pictures, one of Peter frowning with my daughter smiling, the next with her frowning and him smiling. The development person when I showed her the pictures said that was Peter.

In Peter Drucker's class I also presented my business plan for Childbook and he critiqued it (and gave me an A-, after he said an A, such is life). I got to sit next to him as he talked about it, because it reminded him of the vibrant German bilingual community that was in the US before WW1 destroyed it.

Today was the 100th anniverary of Peter Drucker's birth, he passed away 3 years ago, a few days before that years alumni day.
