Bonus content – Event Garde e-news – September edition

Bob Thomas

Bob Thomas, Michigan Chamber Foundation

Q & A with Bob Thomas, senior director of operations and executive director, Michigan Chamber Foundation at Michigan Chamber of Commerce

Learn: Q: What’s one subject you’d like to learn more about?
A: I’d love to learn more about macroeconomics. The more I grow in my career, the more these concepts seem to creep in.

Network: Q: Social media or face-to-face? Which form of networking is better and why?
A: I think social media is a more interesting way to network, but face-to-face is more effective for establishing a trustworthy relationship.

Transfer: Q: Tell us about an experience in which you learned something new and then applied it to your personal or professional life.
A: I started taking ballroom dancing lessons. Not only have I learned a ton about dancing, it’s been a fantastic experience to learn more about my partner, communicating non-verbally and leading by following. It’s an amazing trust-building exercise.

Q: If you could live someone else’s life for a day, who would it be, and why? 
A: I love my life. I don’t know that I’d want to live anyone else’s drama but my own! But I’d love to spend a day with James Corden and do “Carpool Karaoke.”

Q: Would you rather sky dive, bungee jump or climb to the top of the Golden Gate Bridge, and why?
A: None! I’m afraid of heights.
