Baker Hughes' annual executive leadership meeting is usually held in Houston but this year we went to the GE leadership training facility in Ossining, New York. (https://www.facebook.com/pages/GE-Global-Learning-Crotonville-Leadership/166479726706324)

It is an impressive facility and several GE executives spoke to us.

After the meeting I spent Saturday with my daughter touring the Frick museum (my favorite), going to the opera (Rigoletto set in Las Vegas, c. 1960) and dinner. It was a fun break before the long flight to Doha. large_90_IMG_0072.jpglarge_IMG_0071.jpglarge_180_IMG_0091.jpg

Meetings in Doha and Abu Dhabi were primarily for Baker Hughes but I did manage to have dinner with a few local SPE members.
