BBC Friday 6 June 2014 – “what’s new in the cloud” technology roundtable PART II

Cloud Computing Update: Google Drive, Microsoft Office365, FireFox Browser Cloud Sync, and maybe a few other cloud-like spaces and services will be discussed.

This BBC Friday, we’re doing PART II of our roundtable discussion on all things cloud-computing, cloud security, cloud dreaming.

BBC Regulars Annette Walker ( and Jason Omens (OfficeXpats) will be moderating the discussion and fielding your questions.

As time allows, we’ll open the table to general technology topics and new APP-computing recommendations. Have a favorite app? Come and share it with your BBC mates.

Be there, be free, be businesswise. For, in a sense, as serial entrepreneurs, we’re all business-wise!

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

BBC Regulars Lots Of Really Exciting Upcoming Events!

DON’T MISS OfficeXpats June Tuesday@Noon Workshops — STILL 3 SESSIONS!  “Deconstructing Leadership: Tap Your Leadership Style To Transform Your Business & Community.”  Even if you missed the first session — a marvelous discussion, lead by Kathleen O’Brien (, of “Servant Leadership” in the context of community and practical sustainability — the final 3 sessions lead by Cynthia Shick ( will take you though practical steps in identifying your leadership style and strengths. Leadership is about creating and responding to change, no matter what chair you’re leading from. Discovering new ways to effectively tap into your own resources to increase your leadership success takes both self-exploration and awareness.
Some 1st Workshop Observations by Cynthia Shick: Kathleen O’Brien did a stellar job today sharing her community building “servant-leadership” vision while at the same time advocating for the practical side of turning that vision into reality. Her presentation energized participants: writers, analysts, project managers, designers, marketing strategists, team leaders, and team members, some working collaboratively, others as solopreneurs. Next week I look forward to transforming the conversation from “Why I want to lead” to “How I Can.” Who am I as a leader? Where are the best opportunities to develop into a more effective leader? We’ll look at the fundamentals of “Leading” distilled into a simple 3-step process — taking the mystery and anxiety out of Leadership. Cynthia Shick, a professional development facilitator-trainer who brings over 23 years of successful project management to the table. Info and registration:
