BBC Friday 17 March 2023 – Your Board Of Directors Business Strategy Roundtable

BBC 3D – “Be Wacky” – New Ways to Look At Your Business.

Finding simplicity through different perspectives (POV). First, ask “Why?” Second, ask anything!

This BBC Friday Bill Ruddick will lead us in a “Your Board Of Directors” business problem-solving roundtable, using a multiple perspectives strategy for finding solutions. 

So bring a business problem you – or colleagues or business friends – are having. (A wacky solution could turn out to be the most interesting one.)


Notes from last week’s meeting (PDF): Ken Sethney’s BulletPoint_Mktg_Plan and  Dave_SummaryNotes.

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 join us for this exciting non-virtual non-cloud event in real time and real space … and another delicious cup of BBC!
