BBC Friday 8 September 2017 – AI, Robotics, & The FutureOfWork

We’re already in a “retail apocalypse” – blamed on The Amazon Effect. Self-driving cars (and trucks) are only a few years out. Even the work of doctors and lawyers is being encroached upon by technology.  (Cf. intelligence.org)

What happens when so many jobs just go away, and how fast is it happening? Does anyone have a plan? Maybe. Let’s review what’s being predicted, and what might be a reasonable response. [A LeslieSchneider Futurist ThinkTank Production.

“I love helping to create places that foster community and enhance human potential. Better places help people be their best. And great places offer ‘accelerated serendipity’ (a favorite phrase from the coworking world). As an aside, 10+ years ago I flew to NYC to take a multi-day workshop on “How to Turn a Place Around.” Are you a PPS.org fan too? Leslie on linkedin.com/in/leslieschneider/, at OfficeXpats.com.

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

Join us and learn more about the fun and focus of working independently with others.  For the history geeks among us, Coworking Day is actually August 9, 2006 (some history). However, our weekly member meetups and other celebrations are typically on Thursdays, so we are nudging the celebration forward a bit.

BBC Friday 21 July 2017: “We Are Mortal – Now What?” w/ Betty Herman & Meg Mitchell

Over the past years at BBC we’ve talked about business continuity planning, business and community emergency preparedness & incident management, the end of the world.

Today, under the delightful and compassionate guidance of longtime BBC regular Betty Herman (Elder Resources LLC) and retired social worker Meg Mitchell, we will discuss our shared mortality and End Of Life care options, specifically related to the advocacy group End Of Life Washington (endoflifewa.org). Betty’s contact info: 360.471.5572. (For this Friday’s meeting:“if you have any specific questions please call Betty, so she can be making up answers ahead of time instead of on the spot!”).

Succession Planning: “a strategy for passing each key leadership role within a company to someone else in such a way that the company continues to operate … [and] run smoothly after the business’s most important people move on to new opportunities, retire or pass away” (investopedia.com/terms/s/succession-planning.asp). Other resources (Dave) hospicediary.com by Amy Getter & suicidebynaturalcauses.org.

Be here, be free, be mortal and businesswise. For, in a sense, my fellow humans from Earth, 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!
