Today I attended a webinar, as I frequently do. Happily, it was easily the best webinar I've attended in months.
I decided to look up the person conducting the session. Finding her on LinkedIn I noticed that she lived in Belgium. This struck me as odd as she'd had no detectable accent (which usually means that the person shares my accent). And sure enough, down at the bottom of her profile, was her early-career Canadian experience. In fact, the two of us had crossed paths—she worked in the training and communications group of a mutual fund company I worked with, and we were even there at the same time.
