"I wouldn’t be where I am today if it weren’t for my experience at Lawrence Tech. There were small classes, and each time we met, we had the full attention of people who had 30-40 years of experience in the industry. They had and they still have the secret to facilitating creativity. The creative aspect is essential. Technology moves fast. You can’t stagnate."
