|Assistant Account Executive at GCI Group|
I have a story that reinforces why CMD is very special. My boss asked me to lead a presentation on improving GCI knowledge management for an important meeting with the company thought leaders. I had 2 days to prepare and needed help, so I turned to my fellow alums, emailing, calling, and instant messaging. I was overwhelmed by the feedback I received: papers they had written, lists of key KM issues, ideas for improving intranet and communication systems, trends in KM. Never underestimate the power of our alumni network! I've learned so much from my classmates both as an undergrad and as a working professional. My education didn't end with graduation.
