A Conversation with Coined Author Kabir Sehgal
So, one of the great things about attending the FinCon conferences every year is that they allow you to meet new and interesting people. I met Kabir Sehgal in the hotel lobby the night before he gave his keynote speech at FinCon. I actually had no idea who he was, but enjoyed chatting with him when I met him. I flippantly asked him if he wanted to be on my podcast, and I was surprised when he said yes.
This meant that instead of sleeping through his keynote, which I planned to do the next morning, I needed to get up and listen to what he had to say. It was actually one of the more interesting keynotes I have heard, and I was fortunate to receive a free signed copy of his book.
When he signed my book, I reminded him that he said he would come on my show and true to his word, he agreed.
This is a different type of show for me, but one that I thought would be interesting to my listeners. As Kabir and I both joked, as long as you pick up enough for cocktail party conversation, then we have done our job.
