I became interested in food (and cooking) several years ago. While there are many celebrity chefs….Jacques Pepin stands out as one of the elite in the culinary business.
PBS had a recent special on Mr. Pepin. What was most interesting was his ability to reinvent himself through his culinary career….especially after a serious automobile accident.
Businesses (and individuals) must be able to reinvent themselves when faced with major challenges. Kodak and Polaroid to some extent have done that….IBM is an ongoing process. Jacques Pepin is a fine example of reinvention.
