Cocktails & Conversation
Thank you to Ken Tomita ’96 and Nancy Judd ’86! Together they led a lively and interesting conversation with alumni last week during Cocktails & Conversation at Rejuvenation. Ken and Nancy authentically shared what it is like to be both an artisan and entrepreneur and candidly spoke about inspiration, risk taking and the future of their business.
Cocktails & Conversation is a series focused on creating a fun and engaging atmosphere for alumni conversations, and authentic dialogue with fascinating guest speakers. Here is what alumni and faculty are saying about last week’s event:
“Lively and interesting conversation, tremendous venue, wonderful food and beverages: it was a treat to connect with old friends and new – rewarding and fun to see Catlin Gabel alums so deeply passionate about their work and firmly rooted in the community.” -Len Carr ‘75
“I liked the relaxed format, the questions raised, and the engaging surroundings. I will go back there for another look-see.” – Tom Tucker ‘66
“It was interesting to hear from alumni in related fields discussing the similarities and differences in their work, and the importance that a sense of place might have in influencing that work.” –Debbie Kaye ‘73
“I like attending the Cocktails and Conversation events because they are a great way to connect with local alumni and find out about the interesting and innovative things they are doing, both personally and professionally. The events are a great way to stay up to date on both what's going on at Catlin Gabel, among the alumni community and also the greater Portland community at large.” –Emily Bellos ‘02
