A Player's Perspective
We sat down with Leaderboard dominator Pepper1, got to know him a little better, and asked them about their thoughts on cap2con MMOWGLI. Pepper1 says...

Just a quick snapshot of my back-ground: I am a US Navy Veteran with 4 years of AC experience gained on a Knox Class Frigate storming around the Mediterranean, Caribbean, and points across the Atlantic. Upon completing my Undergraduate degree in Accounting from an awesome Big Ten School, I had the unique opportunity to become part of a now defunct Global Accounting & Consulting firm for about 3 years. For the past 16+ years I have been interacting with Executives at all levels and industries assisting them in identifying and capturing resources for their team’s success.
Why cap2con: in a career and/or a lifetime there may be a limited number of moments that you will have a true opportunity to actually contribute to the strategic direction of a $200 Billion dollar organization, and one that operates as a family. cap2con has been constructed to do just this - allow professionals from every corner of the globe, hundreds of individuals working collaboratively and simultaneously - to bring forward ideas that achieve “paradigm breaking, off the reservation” thinking and grab serious momentum towards a common goal. Herd cats so to speak.
Importance of cap2con: in my time and currently in your time, "we stand the watch” in “today’s time” to protect our nation and family. We used/use our expertise, our assets and our ability to take care of the “now.” cap2con affords us the opportunity and the format to individually step forward as leaders and contribute to the future, near term and long term. It is easy for me to get behind this as I look over to my children, ages 2 and 8, who I know will be, well, influenced greatly, part of our legacy and our tradition.
We all understand that IDEAS NOW, generated today, in this moment, need time to be vetted and applied to ensure SUCCESS. To all cap2con participants----even an hour or two of your active participation is critical and can change the course of the future. That one idea, or one thought, born into this event will take on many parents. This “child” will be nurtured, developed and shaped into endless potential possibilities and have significant and positive impact.
Take Action: When you enter into cap2con, operate with this in mind….
“If at first, the idea is not absurd, then there is no hope for it.” - Albert Einstein
I am grateful that this is my second MMOWGLI event and I would certainly note to everyone, that during my participation, there is more than once, well, most of the time, where I feel like Vince Vaughn or Owen Wilson from this clip in the movie "The Internship".
It’s the feeling you get when you know for certain that you have crossed the line of demarcation of your own expertise and are speaking into some ones else’s subject matter knowledge and they are in close proximity or participating in the conversation.
It’s in this moment you have to keep contributing, positively, and actively listening. I guarantee you will never be in the same knowledge position again. You will stretch how you interact. I’m not trying to be the little bald kid wearing a toga from the movie "The Matrix", you know…telling you, it’s not the spoon who bends...
Adapt, Stay Positive, Actively Listen, Contribute, Draw into conversation those that are not as active, solicit feedback, Engage, Encourage.
….and keep this in mind---see this clip---“it’s not so much getting out of the blender, it’s what happens next!”
