BBC “Experiment Part 2” virtual/in-person@OfficeXpats, 16 July 2021

Welcome to our 2nd post-COVID hybrid BBC Friday, both in-person and virtual Zoomed @OfficeXpats. For those fully vaccinated, you may join us at OfficeXpats for our 2nd hybrid virtual-Zoom and in-person BBC Friday. We will continue to use the same vBBC Zoom meeting link for those who want to stay virtual (late risers, south end islanders, cross the bridge BBC regulars, off-world space travelers). For those coming into OfficeXpats consider bringing a laptop to also “Zoom-in” (with mic on mute).

It can help to have read the summary notes from last week’s discussion BBC_9July2021

Given BBC’s stated Vision Statement (see the BBC About page), how can the BBC best serve our somewhat curious business community? How can the BBC best carry on post-COVID?

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

So Invite your friends and associates to join us for this 2nd HYBRID event in real time & real space … and another delicious cup of BBC!
