BBC Friday 12 Oct 2018 – COBI / Business Community Roundtable

Join us this BBC Friday for another COBI & Community Business update and roundtable discussion, with our own mistress of entrepreneurial munificence Leslie Schneider. 

Leslie on City Council: I have been an active advocate for sustainability and local economy since 1992 when I started volunteering for Sustainable Seattle and later for the Business Alliance for Local Living Economy. I love how the design of physical space can encourage the growth of relationships in a community. To live in deeper community with neighbors, I was a founding member of Jackson Place Cohousing (JPC). I had many leadership roles in the development and construction of JPC’s 27 condominium units and common spaces, located just southeast of downtown Seattle. I lived there for eight years until moving to Bainbridge Island. I also volunteered for the Pomegranate Center (“Strengthening Communities Through Creative Collaboration”). I even went all the way to New York City to take a workshop on “How to turn a place around,” from one of my favorite organizations, the Project For Public Spaces. I visited City Repair projects in Portland, Oregon, and have participated recently in that organization’s annual Village Building Convergence.” 

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!

BBC Friday 21 Sept 2018 – “Bainbridge Biz Bytes” w/ Kevin Dwyer

Join us this brisk BBC Friday for a community business innovation discussion with founding BBC Regular and journalist-comedian Kevin Dwyer: “Bainbridge Biz Bytes” [working title] is a proposed “local/regional Web Site/Blog, by local contributing writers, focused on the business niche. Experts say niche publishing can be more successful in the long run.” 

The Idea. With the proposed subtitle “Celebrating Business and Entrepreneurship on Bainbridge Island and throughout the Kitsap Peninsula,” the site will be an aggregater and pollinator (originator) of stories focusing primarily on such categories as: Non-Profits, Real Estate, Trends (business, demographics, economics, technology), Tourism & Travel, plus Point Of View (columns from contributors on subjects such as Leadership, Investing, Human Resources, Business & Politics). Some sub-categories: Second Acts (seniors with a passion, doing neat business or community stuff in retirement); Business Books (good reads for biz folks); After Hours (interesting and fun stuff business people are doing in their free time, such as art, acting, coaching, playing music, running a non-profit or running with biker gangs like the Geezers Of Furry).

An interesting and creative brainstorming session for a creative new idea. A fun idea. Let’s see what might happen. BBC, the home of crazy … er, fun stuff. Kevin on LinkedIn: linkedin.com. Geezers Of Fury: facebook.com/groups/107291689320212/.

BBC Friday 14 Sept 2018 – “Beginner’s Guide to Video Marketing” w/ Matt Longmire

Join us this kinda-fall BBC Friday for a hands-on roundtable workshop on the latest in video/photo marketing with Matt Longmire, Bainbridge Island video producer and photographer specializing in brand marketing for small to medium businesses (mattlongmire.com).

Most business owners and freelancers understand the need for video and photography marketing but very few know where to begin. What kind of video? How long should it be? What should you do with it? How do you know if it’s working? These are all common questions that should be answered before even considering video. Matt on LinkedIn: linkedin.com/in/mattlongmire/.

After a brief presentation, Matt will brainstorm ideas for those who’d like to volunteer themselves as an example and create a video strategy right on the spot. “Great video material is much easier to produce than you’d think. Even if you produce it yourself, you can do so in a way that doesn’t require expensive equipment and years of experience, but still yields incredible results.” Matt on Instagram: instagram.com/mattlongmire/.

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!

BBC Friday 7 September 2018 – COBI / Business Community Roundtable

Join us this last-of-summer BBC Friday for a COBI & Community Business update and roundtable discussion, with our own mistress of entrepreneurial mischief Leslie Schneider. 

Leslie on City Council: I have been an active advocate for sustainability and local economy since 1992 when I started volunteering for Sustainable Seattle and later for the Business Alliance for Local Living Economy. I love how the design of physical space can encourage the growth of relationships in a community. To live in deeper community with neighbors, I was a founding member of Jackson Place Cohousing (JPC).

I visited City Repair projects in Portland, Oregon, and have participated recently in that organization’s annual Village Building Convergence.” 

Leslie moved to Bainbridge Island in 2009, where her son graduated from BHS in 2015. She started a coworking business in 2011 called OfficeXpats with partner Jason Omens. OfficeXpats is a shared office space and collaborative hub for independent professionals, and it won the Chamber Of Commerce small business of the year award for 2014 for its support of local business and the community. Leslie has also served on the boards of Sustainable Bainbridge and the Kitsap Regional Library Foundation.
