The following update is shared by John Mihaljevic, chairman of MOI Global. The post will be updated for additional impressions and takeaways over the coming week or so. Whenever the post is updated, it will re-appear on the homepage of MOI Global, with a related note in the title.

I just returned from Ideaweek 2018 and would like to share a few impressions while they are fresh in my mind. The gratitude I feel at having spent a week with fellow members and friends is immense. Those who participated in this inaugural Ideaweek would likely agree that the calibre and mindset of fellow participants made the time spent in St. Moritz absolutely priceless.

In the following impressions, I will single out a few participants simply because it would take too long to reflect on everyone and every single interaction. This is inherently unfair, as Ideaweek truly benefited from all participants, and so I hope you’ll forgive me for my brevity.

First, I’d like to thank Bob and Su Robotti for joining the group and contributing their wisdom and zest for life. The various ski and non-ski activities were enriched by their presence and humor.

During one of the dinners, Bob lamented that some consider puns to be the lowest form of humor. Bob and I vociferously disagreed with that view and proceeded to share a few laughs. I don’t remember the specifics, but it was along the lines of, “eBay is so useless. I tried to look up lighters and all they had was 13,749 matches.” You get the idea. (If not, you probably would after a week at Ideaweek.)
