Join us this BBC Friday for Business Story-telling in the classic BBC tradition, featuring BBC Regulars Lori Newberg, freelance writer and artist, and Sandra Andrews-Strasko, “Empty Your Nest.”

LoriNewbergLori Newberg (aka freelance writer and former Corporate Wonk) is an emerging artist currently working on a project titled “Found In Translation.” The work’s inspiration derives from vintage photographs taken following WWII by her uncle, a reconnaissance photographer stationed in France, who later studied at the Sorbonne. Lori will exhibit the first three pieces in the series and talk briefly about the undertaking. She looks forward to our delightful feedback, creative ideas, and serendipitous support.  [email protected] |
