Ron Peltier, fifty-year Islander and local business owner, Environmental Bainbridge founder, and active with Islanders for Responsible Development, will be our special guest this Friday, sharing his business wisdom and insights on local economic sustainability and environmentally creative business practice.
Environmental Bainbridge serves as an umbrella for environmental groups striving to promote sustainability and stewardship. We believe saving the planet starts at home and effective activism does not trivialize environmental principles (environmentalbainbridge.org). Islanders for Responsible Development is working to promote smart development on Bainbridge Island (facebook.com/EnvironmentalBainbridge).
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 non-virtual non-cloud event in real time and real space…and another delicious cup of BBC!
