BBC Friday 10 May 2019 – Branding Bainbridge

This BBC Friday join us for a Branding Bainbridge Business Brainstorming Roundtable. How can Bainbridge Island become a year-round event destination? How might the many places, products, and businesses on Bainbridge fashion a unified Island identity?

Everyone has a brand. Some are intentional, some are earned by actions, some good, and others not so good. What message do we, as a place on Google maps, represent to the outside world, to visitors, to those considering moving their businesses to Bainbridge? Do we come across as closed and insular? Or looking to the future, innovative, creative? 

A Bainbridge Brand should be true to our message: to visitors, businesses, and residents. Bring your thoughts, ideas, visions, brains, for a lively Bainbridge Brand Business Strategy Roundtable. (See:

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!

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