The USA Science and Engineering Festival event, the child of the ever-exuberant, ever-approachable Larry Bock, has a beautiful tribute to this man who was a special gift to the work of Yamana Science and Engineering – now ReImagine Science. Please watch:
Our history is deeply connected with Larry, who agreed to host our first national events as part of the USA Science and Engineering Festival in 2010 and 2012. A simple email via the ‘contact us’ option on the USA Science and Engineering Festival brought a quick response:
Thanks for your expression of interest in the USA Science and Engineering Festival in your em below.
The first step would be to organize a brief phone call.
Would you have anytime next Wednesday around 9AM EST?
USA Science & Engineering Festival
That launched a ready open-ness and generosity from a man that I did not meet in person until he opened our second USA Science and Engineering Festival event, the 2012 Science UnSummit, at the artisphere in Arlington VA. I could email or call and he never turned me away.
Larry has set the bar high for CEOs and serial entrepreneurs….I do not think I will easily find a person as accomplished, as productive, as recognized and as busy who somehow found a way to be exceptionally supportive (for no other reason than a shared passion for the success of science) and exceedingly kind and gracious.
For that I am most grateful, Larry, and I send my greatest appreciation and admiration for you, a most honorable and inspirational instance of a human being.
