This week at BBC we will revive one of our older traditions: “Giving each other’s elevator speeches” as another form of referral sharing.
Nothing like a pat on the back to encourage a fellow BBC Regular.
In giving one another’s elevator speech, we learn no only how much we know about each other, but what we need to know in order to give a really good referral.
So, so, so, invite your friends and associates to join us for this exciting non-virtual non-cloud event in real time and real space … and another delicious cup of BBC!
