Thank you for visiting “Corks & Coffee Talk” series of blogs on sharing professional and personal experiences for making small changes and adding huge impact in your family life, workplace, and achieving your academic goals.

The title of my blog is a very personal one, it was inspired by special friendships I’ve established over the years over a glass of wine and/or cup of coffee.

Coffee talk was inspired by a former manager and mentor whom I admire greatly early in my career. Every afternoon we would chat at a cafe near our office. It wasn’t about the cup of warm drink, it was the conversations and for the simple reason of stepping away from the confinement of our office.

Likewise I have fostered lasting relationships with colleagues and strangers in various settings toasting to the day with bubbles and spirits.

Over time and as rich as the nice glass of spirits and aromatic cup of roasted beans, I have discovered the value of time well spent with friends sharing stories.

As often as possible I will share these conversations and insights via a post or two, profiling some great blogs to inspire and employ my own experiences to appeal, gain new readers, and build a more engaged community.  And from time-to-time highlight some people, food and places to add a little variety, tastes and adventures.
