This morning I found out that one of my students from long ago had passed away.
My first International trip as a trainer was to Bangalore, India, back in 1998.
I have many memories from the trip and most of the students from that course are still working for the company.
That training long ago was a challenge as I was teaching a large number of engineers on quite a few products. It was also during my first year of teaching for the company. We had also just set up our office in India, so it was important to have trained engineers.
I look at this picture and reflect on the careers of these students. Many are in leadership positions today. I still see some of them in Zoom meetings, and several of them have also been certified as trainers by me. Unfortunately, that means I have not been to India for a very long time to conduct training.
Through the years I have worked with Prashant through e-mail and more recently through Zoom. It has been good working with him through the years. His family is in my prayers tonight.
A lot of memories today.
