"This is the most interesting Group I've joined so far! Looking forward more challenging problems in the future!"
“ It's a start, but this group has the potential to be the next " The Apprentice" - "The Chi-Town Apprentice" at least :) Our founder- Mike, he is an extremely intelligent, well-organized, thoughtful, creative and very hands-on type of group leader. From the meeting venue set up, food/drink selection, his presentation, to the problems that we are asked to solve, you can tell he puts a lot of time and effort into this. And the end result is always satisfying! Come to join us! You'll learn some substantial problem solving skills among smart and talented people, and have a LOT of fun doing it! ”
"Had a great time looking at some interesting problems using an innovative, challenging process. Great job putting it all together Mike. Looking forward to the next Meetup and curious to see what topics we'll tackle next."
“ Mike Tortorello, What a tremendous job you did with the Meetup - Brainstorm Chicago: Problem Solving Innovation Gathering! The introduction, PowerPoint instructions, hands-on team collaboration and the groups brainstorming to solve the main protagonist, constraints, goals and solution (the story being told) gave a deeper insight in problem-solving. With your thoughtful planning and scholarly aptitude, with a hint of absurdity and wit, you are awarded the Gold Medal!! I invite others to attend…….. "
