The phone rang as I was documenting my thoughts. I had breakfast with the president and the general manager of a well recognized consulting firm 2 weeks ago. It wasn’t an interview. The meeting was more of a getting back in touch – I had worked on consulting mandates with the president a few years back.
The meeting allowed us to talk about the past, discuss the state of software development in general and share thoughts about the future. It was a very pleasant meeting. We had exchanged emails after the first meeting but schedules got in the way of a follow-up meeting.
They were calling to meet for breakfast next week to talk about my initiative to launch a consulting business in the business intelligence area. They also have a few ideas they would like to share. This should be interesting.
