BBC Friday 1 November 2019 – Business Problem-solving Roundtable

This BBC Friday we will hold a business roundtable on the topic of “What’s a business problem you have struggled with or that you know other business friends may have struggled with?” First we’ll begin by opening up the table for sharing business issues or problems. 

Then, from this discussion we’ll consider the following:
1) share/brainstorm various problem-solving strategies;
2) network with others who may share similar business problems;
3) make a list of key business issues and problems from which we can develop specific future BBC business presentations.
Be here, be free, be businesswise. For, in a sense, me hearties, as serial entrepreneurials, we all be business wise! …Arr.

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!
