Faculty Enrichment and Education Development (FEED): Doing it my way: Creating your own career

Monday, October 8 2018 @ 05:00 PM to 07:00 PM

Walther Hall (R3) ,C303/C305

Presenter(s): Jean-luc Doumont, PhD
Audience: Faculty, Staff, and Learners


Dr Doumont’s decision to pursue a career off the beaten path raised many eyebrows. Was there a need to help researchers and others with their communication? Was he even qualified? In this career talk, Jean-luc reflects on over a quarter century as a lone ranger: the path that led him to the choices he made and to the success he knows, the joys and pains of doing things his way, and his own approach to work-life balance.

An engineer (Louvain) and PhD in applied physics (Stanford), Jean-luc is acclaimed worldwide for his no-nonsense approach, his highly applicable, often life-changing recommendations on a wide range of topics, and Trees, maps, and theorems, his book about ‘effective communication for rational minds’.
