In responding to the request to give a paper at the 50th Loss Prevention Symposium, this paper gives a brief synopsis of my career, and how attending the annual LPS meetings over the last 37 years has tremendously supported my professional work. It relates how a theoretical physical chemist was transformed into a consultant having an expertise in electrostatic ignitions of fires and explosions. Of all the reasons one could have for attending an LPS, networking is singled out, emphasized and supported by examples.
