Blog it Forward – Mor Sagmon

Please read Moshe Naveh’s post if you are not familiar with the Blog It Forward Challenge.

My name is Mor Sagmon, working for SAP for over 12 years holding various positions with the field organization and now at SAP Research. When I’m not contributing to SAP, I take an active role in sustainability, social and well-being activities by volunteering in multiple organizations and initiatives. Together with other enthusiasts, we’re changing the world 🙂 Mor_UnderTheStream.JPG

Gali Blogged it Forward to me and asked that I answer the following questions:

A fact(s) about SAP Labs Israel the community might not be familiar with:

After acquiring 3 companies in Israel, located in 3 different cities, SAP Labs consolidated all employees in a single new building in Ra’anana, on July 2004. But guess what: a week later we were notified of yet another acquisition of a company in Tefen, at the northern part of Israel, later to be relocated to Carmiel. I guess we were never meant to live in one brotherhood…

Share one person who influenced you greatly and why:

Dr. Stuart White has changed my life. Literally. Having experienced profound transformation under Stuart’s professional treatment, contrary to all we we were told possible, I started asking questions. Since then, I discovered the true virtue of sustainable well-being, why we’re all degenerating in a golden hi-tech world and the tremendous power of nutrition on our physical and mental capacities.

I live in Israel, a country in which all cultures, religions, tastes and climates live and die together on a small piece of land. While most people watching TV think our number one challenge is reaching peace with our fellow Arab neighbors, few know that reaching common ground among the diverse flavors of the Jewish religion: between the orthodox and the secular, is the real issue, without a hint for resolution in sight.

I’d like to share a crazy fact about myself that most people don’t know. At the age of 15 I departed school, it seems our life-lines were never meant to meet. I worked in several places and during my military service I independently completed all matriculation requirements to be ready for University. I kinda did it my way 😉

I’m forwarding the blog to::

Hal Wrobel, Adir Katz, Edna Tamir-Dahan, Erez Sobol, Gil Bickel

I would ask that they please answer one or more of the following questions:

  • If SAP would grant you with a full day every week to do whatever you feel like, what would it be?
  • What is the position you believe is missing at SAP? We need a position with the following responsibilities…
  • If I was 20 again, what would I go study?

Please be sure to follow the Blog It Forward Chain to see where it will lead…

  • Hi Mor,

    It took this initiative for me to "meet" you and learn about your interests in Sustainability and Healthy Lifestyle (my son-in-law, also Israeli, is now studying Chiropractic Medicine) and my daughter (his wife) has a master's in Sustainability and Public Administration.  I bet you might have common things to share.

    To Susan Keohan point about titles for your picture, I guess one has to understand how precious the commodity water is in Israel.  So getting wet in nature is a celebratory activity.

    And many "hikes" are to arrive at some Oasis where there is a gem of a spring or bathing place.  Do share with us where this one was snapped!

    • Hi Marilyn, thanks for the warm words. Sounds like we do have a lot in common (not only your daughter and son-in-law), given the community and education concepts you subscribe to.

      The picture above was taken in Wadi David, near its entry into the Dead Sea. It is surely one of the rare areas where water presents itself in a desert landscape. As one hikes along these trails, snicking under a refreshing stream is a delight!

  • Hi Mor,

    Nice blog and I liked pic very much! Very realistic!

    I liked the way you have presented..

    Keep up the good work! 🙂
