What Letslunchers say about Gene(8)
Gene is a very good listener and is a awesome adviser. He has given me a few good tips on how to become successful and I'm looking forward to seeing him again to continue to leverage his knowledge.
Gene is a considerate, smart and pleasant lunch partner. He knows about many companies, industries and Silicon Valley practices. It was my first time and I'm truly impressed; can't wait till my next letsLunch meeting.
I was held up as I had to call the police to report road rage directed at me in the parking lot behind the restaurant at which we were to meet at noon. Gene called me at 12:08 and I apologized and said I would be there shortly. He called again at 12:15pm, I explained I had literally just finished talking to the police, and was half a block from the restaurant and would be there in minutes. Gene said he could not wait and left. If the lunch is from 12-1pm, this makes little sense to me. I had scheduled my mid day around this meeting and driven 20 minutes each way to attend. So it was a big waste of my time to have him cancel at 12:15pm He was a real jerk on the phone. I am sorry he felt stood up, but 15 minutes late is hardly a crime and I was actually reporting a crime to the police which is why I was late in the first place which I explained to him on the phone.
