I was sitting in front of an audience of 2,000 people in Calcutta, India in November of 2002 at the India Society for Training and Development (ISTD) annual conference. I was on stage as one of the three keynote speakers talking back-to-back-to-back on the future of learning in India. 

The first speaker was the head of the India Ministry of Education. The second was the head of the India Ministry for Learning and Development. The third, me, was a nervous fledgling in the field of L&D, the son of the famous Dr. Don Kirkpatrick

After clearing away the blank look on his face, he told a brief story of a firefighter crashing through the window of his bedroom when he was seven years old to save his life. 

After the movie was over, I thought about how I would answer that question. What are my defining moments?
