This past spring, I was honored to be selected as one of FEI’s scholarship recipients. FEI, Silicon Valley Chapter, is composed of all the CFOs of notable companies in Silicon Valley. The organization is absolutely phenomenal and has organized so many great events for this year’s recipients and scholarship alumni. One of the events I was very lucky to be invited to was a dinner conference filled with incredible people. This private dinner conference of about 200 people included:
-Former NY Governor Eliot Spitzer
-US Senator Chris Dodd
-Congressman Tom Campbell
-William Watkins, CEO of Bridgelux and former CEO of Seagate Technology
-Thomas Weisel, Co-Chairman of Stifel Nicolaus Weisel and former CEO of Montgomery Securities
-Josh Bolten, President Bush’s White House Chief of Staff
It was very exciting to meet these leaders and hear them speak about world economics!
Sorry for the bad picture quality-I used my phone to take the pictures and it does not have flash.
