BBC Friday 27 June 2014 – Think Club Does the 4th of July!

BBC Friday 27 June 2014 – Think Club does the 4th Of July!

This BBC Friday we’ll dive into a delightful and challenging business strategy roundtable brainstorming session.

Process: the famous Think Club method, w/ founding BBC Regular and renowned thinkologist Bill Ruddick.

Subject: BBC @ the 4th. 

Goal: supporting  “OXp, home of the BBC.” OfficeXpats, our 7th and longest-surviving venue, has been our home for half our existence on Earth (or anywhere else actually).

In exactly one week we’ll be celebrating our 5th anniversary BBC @ the 4th! BBC has always been about community, supporting each others business by supporting and encouraging one another.

So, this very exciting year 2014 — the year the US (almost) won their first World Cup Football championship!  let us continue the BBC tradition of serendipitous entrepreneurial creativity and community support and service … by thinking well.

Think about it!

Be there, be free, be businesswise. For, in a sense, as serial entrepreneurs, we’re all business wise!

 So, invite your friends and associates to come join us for this exciting real-cloud event in real time and real space … and another delicious cup of BBC!
