BBC Friday 28 August 2015 – Ron Peltier – “Sharing Business Wisdom”

RonPeltier2Ron Peltier, fifty-year Islander and local business owner, Environmental Bainbridge founder, and active with Islanders for Responsible Developmentwill be our special guest this Friday, sharing his business wisdom and insights on local economic sustainability and environmentally creative business practice. 

RonPeltierFacebookEnvironmental 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).

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