BBC Friday 26 August 2016 – Business Storytelling w/ Cortney Wollaston, manager Rolling Bay Hall

Join us this Friday for another exciting installment of “Who am I this time?” This week’s question: “What’s this crazy Rolling Bay Hall?” with BBC space cadet and RBH Manager, Cortney Wollaston (of Space Craft fame).

CortneyWollaston2sm

A rentable, cultural facility, Rolling Bay Hall offers a rare, intimate performance space ideal for public and private events. RBH also has some delightful work spaces and meeting rooms! Many of you may have known 10598 NE Valley Road as the Island Music Guild, and in recent years, as Space Craft. While these are highly valued tenants and renters, RBH is a shared space — and is available for you

This BBC Friday Cortney will share some RBH history, brag about current tenants, and describe ideal uses for businesses. “RBH is a start-up and aspires to rent with vision. What could make this approach sustainable? Can a rental facility build a brand? Do we vet public performances? Your BBC wisdom and ideas will be greatly appreciated!”

Rolling Bay Hall is affordable, intimate, and unencumbered by anything but your imagination.  RBHLoungeYou can visit RBH Thursday mornings from 9:00-11:00 for a walk-through, doughnut, and cup of coffee. Cortney Wollaston, rollingbayhall.com, 206.549.2581, info@rollingbayhall.com.

Be here, be free, be businesswise. For, in a sense, me scurvy seadogs, as serial entrepreneurs, we’re all business wise!

So invite your friends and associates to come join us for this exciting non-virtual non-cloud event in real time and real space…and another delicious cup of BBC!

BBC Friday 12 August 2016 – Chamber Roundtable “2017: 50 Years Of 4ths”

ChamberLogo2014This BBC Friday we’ll hold a special Strategy Roundtable for our delightful friends and founding BBC Regulars at the Bainbridge Island Chamber Of Commerce. Next Year 2017 holds some exciting anniversary events here on Bainbridge (barring emergency contingencies such as earthquakes, volcanoes, floods, tsunamis, or economic collapse, for which we are of course well prepared). MSH80_eruption_mount_st_helens_05-18-80-dramatic-edit

Specifically, the Bainbridge Island Chamber of Commerce organized Grand Old 4th of July Celebration, Bainbridge Island’s biggest party, turns 50 (see the grandold4th.com  website). How can we prepare well ahead for this momentous (non-catastropic) event? How can we as a business community, a coworking community, an Island community, support our Chamber and other potentially involved groups (e.g. Rotary, The Downtown Association) to plan for this REALLY BIG ONE? 

TheChannelSo this BBC Friday let’s put on our colored thinking caps, Channel The Chamber (thechannelbainbridge.com), and brainstorm ideas for 2017. Hey, maybe we could bury the 50th Anniversary Winning Float in a 100 year time capsule. Or how about we bury Dave in a 100 year cryogenic time capsule. The possibilities are endless! 

Be here, be free, be businesswise. For, in a sense, me scurvy maties, as serial entrepreneurs, we’re all business wise!

BBC Friday 15 July 2016 – BC@BBC Hands-on Incident Planning Workshop

BC@BBC — Join us this BBC FRIDAY for a Business Continuity / Incident Planning Workshop

penguins

Typical Workplace Incident In Need Of Planning …

BC (or as we learned last week, Business Continuity) can be defined as the uninterrupted availability of all key resources supporting essential business functions. Business continuity management (BCM) provides for the availability of processes and resources following a disruption of the business in order to ensure the continued achievement of mission critical objectives.” (Business Continuity Management: Global Best Practices, 4th Ed, Andrew Hiles, 2014)

Incident Planning starts with objectives, which are the goals, then the strategies which are the basics of “how” to meet the objectives, and then the tactics which are the “who, what, when, and where” specifics. O.S.T. — objectives, strategies, tactics. Kinda like BBC’s fair triumvirate “free, fun, friendly.” Or that fair triumvirate of Italian cuisine, “Chianti vineyards, wheat fields, olive groves.” 

Colleen On LinkedInColleen Kragen – EMERPREP Consultant – will be leading us through this exercise in business fitness and preparedness! On LinkedIn: linkedin.com/pub/colleen-kragen/a9/186/455. Emailcolleen.kragen@gmail.com. BBC-handout: Business Recovery Plan.

BBC Friday 8 July 2016 – Emergency Preparedness Part 3, w/ Colleen Kragen

Colleen On LinkedInBC@BBC — Join us this BBC FRIDAY for the long-awaited Emergency Preparedness Part 3, w/ Colleen Kragen:   Business Continuity Planning For Bainbridge Island

“BC can be defined as the uninterrupted availability of all key resources supporting essential business functions. Business continuity management (BCM) provides for the availability of processes and resources following a disruption of the business in order to ensure the continued achievement of mission critical objectives.” (Business Continuity Management: Global Best Practices, 4th Ed., By Andrew Hiles, 2014)

BC risk assessment and management is important for every business to consider. Bainbridge has unique characteristics that make BC planning crucial: natural disasters can cause physical isolation; power outages and communication systems losses are common; it has a delicate economic system that is vulnerable to supply shortages. (But … DON’T PANIC! Be prepared.)

BBC Friday 24 June 2016 – BBC @ Bainbridge Brewers!

BIBrewingLogo3This coming BBC Friday is a very special event, created, organized, and executed by our own KEVIN WILEY (linkedin.com/in/wileykevin), and scheduled at an historic Island venue: Bainbridge Island Brewing!

RussellEvertt_BreweryThank you to Russell Everett, head brewer and co-founder of Bainbridge Island Brewing, and all his mates, for hosting this special almost-8-year anniversary of BBC — including our humble “free-waffles” roots at the Blue Ocean Cafe. And not just waffles, but beer-batter waffles, gluten-free waffles, bacon and eggs and waffles, and of course coffee … and, I’m told, there’s, you know, some famous beer on tap. Bainbridge Brewing on Facebook: facebook.com/BainbridgeBrewing/timeline

Be there (this one time away from our dear home OfficeXpats), be free, be businesswise! For, in a sense, me scurvy maties, as serial entrepreneurs, we’re all business wise!

So invite your friends and associates to come join us for this exciting non-virtual non-cloud event in real time and real space … and another delicious cup of BBC!

BBC@OfficeXpats – 403 Madison Ave N, Bainbridge Is., Upstairs At the Pavilion

7:30-8:00 coffee/tea, visiting, informal networking
8:00-8:45 BBC @ Bainbridge Brewers!
8:30-9:00 more networking, sharing, visiting
