MWE SHORT: Pat Kenny – Trust and Transitions

“You never know who you might be sitting next to right now. It might be someone you run into 20 or 35 years from now and that might be the person that gives you the break you need.”

In this video from MarketsWiki Education’s World of Opportunity event in Chicago, Pat Kenny, senior vice president with CQG, talks about a number of key traits needed to succeed in any workforce. As a trader in the pits of the Chicago Board of Trade in the early ’80s when word was the only bond, Kenny learned about the importance of honesty and good judgment. He also stresses the importance of nonverbal communication. Making solid eye contact and sitting up straight are two qualities he believes are lost on the generation coming into the workforce.
