BBC – 22 January 2021 – week #45

Welcome to the 3rd virtual BBC Friday of 2021 – meeting in a free Democracy!

Business Storytelling with sometime BBC Regular – and Dave’s friend – Mark Bullard, owner of BrainSquall Inc. (brainsquall.co), mind-mapping for professional services and customer success.  “I like to build and grow businesses and have extensive experience doing so in software, hospitality, and Real Estate industries.”

BrainSquall is about context.Every time you meet with a customer, you learn something new. Where do you put it? Chatter, Slack, Notion, Confluence, OneNote, Quip, Evernote? These unstructured, linear notes don’t tell the whole customer story. You need to see all three dimensions of customer intelligence – in context.” Exciting!  Mark on LinkedIn: linkedin.com/in/markdbullard/

Mark has raised sheep (Snowy & Foggy Bottom), had a short acting career in the short film “Askew” (2001), is a published author, and continues to hone his specialties in intellectual property, intellectual asset management, legal technology, document assembly and matter management software, international business venture development, CRM, sales systems and process, and financial control analysis and design.
