I’m a pretty direct person, but I was a little shocked with my actions yesterday. I asked an energy scientist from the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory if I could meet him at 7 a.m. on a Saturday morning to discuss his research.
You could call it presumptuous, but it's part of my advance planning for the SEJ conference. The Saturday in question is Saturday, Oct. 16, which is the day this scientist, Dr. Jeffery Greenblatt, will speak at a panel I’m moderating on clean energy technology and the environment.
Another motivation for this meeting is fear that I won't be able to take notes during my panel. As moderator, I anticipate my role will look more like traffic control, making sure SEJers line up at the microphone for questions.
So, what’s your conference game plan?
