Looking at the horizon

in Swiss Alps at Rochers-de-NayeOn a recent weekend, I went hiking in the Swiss Alps at Rochers-de-Naye with my husband and one of our nieces.  When I looked out at the breathtakingly beautiful horizon, I thought about all that stretches out in front of me as I start yet another new chapter of my life.  I was honored to hold the post of Executive-in-Residence at IMD Business School in Lausanne, Switzerland for the past two years (Sept 2010 – Aug 2012). I found it deeply satisfying to work in executive education programs with IMD faculty and participants from around the world.  While I will continue some work at IMD, my clients are happy that I again will have more time to work on other projects and I look forward to new opportunities to collaborate with them and others.  So, as at every other significant transition moment in my life, I am taking stock of all I have to be grateful for and I don’t have to look far!  If interested, also see my latest More Than 85 interview.

    Living abroad and hearing of your work is inspiring. It certainly adds to one’s culture to see how others live. Wonderful work indeed!

    I loved when I lived abroad. I have lived in Asia and Europe and both had such fabulous experiences and memories. I now am looking forward to traveling across the US motorhome style!

    I’ve done some hiking in Switzerland and loved every minute of it, but then I love hiking here in Germany as well.

    What a wonderful opportunity. My parents sent me on a school trip to Austria in 9th grade- and I’ll never forget it and 40 years later and I never again went further than Mexico.
    It seems like you really appreciate this great time in your life. Congrats.
