This BBC Friday we have a timely presentation with Shannon Childs, SVP Marketing Director at Kitsap Bank.
If you had an extra $20,000, how would you improve your business? Shannon Childs will join us this Friday to talk about Kitsap Bank’s edg3 FUND (rhymes with hedge fund) small business competition. Edg3 FUND recognizes triple bottom line companies that are making a positive impact on our community. More info about the fund can be found at kitsapbank.com/edg3-fund/.
Shannon Childs (LinkedIn) has served as Kitsap Bank’s Marketing Director for over 10 years, managing marketing and communications for the bank’s 21 locations and departments. From 1999-2003 she managed marketing, communications, and government relations at Paladin Data Systems.
Be there, be free, be businesswise. For, in a sense, as serial entrepreneurs, we’re all business wise!

OfficeXpats “Gurus@Noon”: to encourage more collaboration and connections between OXp Members on a regular basis, OfficeXpats is experimenting with a new structure for Tuesdays@noon. Instead of the typical up-in-front-of-the-class instruction, OXp is putting out a call forOfficeXperts or gurus on a number of themes and asking them to “hold court” for one Tuesday@noon in the Event room at their own table – like a “help desk.” Each Tuesday showcases gurus of similar expertise, utilizing a coworking-friendly concept called “coopetition” (officexpats.com/gurusnoon/). Yet another great reason to consider a membership at OfficeXpats!
