BBC Friday, 11 January 2013 – Four Year Anniversary Breakfast

This  BBC Friday @ OfficeXpats, we will be celebrating with a waffle/pancake & fresh fruit breakfast.

OfficeXpats Business Coworking & Conference CenterBring your stories to share of BBC Past, maybe even some stories of BBC Future (wait a little while and sci-fi becomes history). We’ll also do some business strategy roundtabling on what we’d enjoy doing this year 2013. What are some ways our free business networking & support community can help your business and, generally, the businesses on Bainbridge Island and beyond.

We would like, over the next weeks, to build up a database of local Kitsap County business owners and entrepreneurs who would enjoy speaking/presenting to our group, telling their business stories and sharing their experiences and wisdom.

A few BBCits, including our gracious OXp hosts Leslie & Jason, have agreed to bring their pancake-griddle/waffle-iron and batter. If you’re so inclined, you are welcome to do likewise. Come a little early if you can — we start our informal networking/visiting time at 7:30.

So invite your friends and associates to join us for this exciting BBC event — and another delicious cup of BBC!
