Most Unconventional Work Experience
Three years ago, I had a memorable experience when I to follow the Governor after our meeting at the PICC. He was in a hurry to leave. I was also in a hurry to get his decision on who should succeed the incumbent Deputy Governor who was about to retire in six months’ time. I had to follow his entourage. To catch his attention, I talked to his aides and cracked a silly joke. When they all laughed, the Governor turned his head and saw me. I quickly approached him and we had a 15-minute discussion at the hallway.
