BBC Friday 28 September 2012 – Local Business Entrepreneur “All Media Bainbridge”

Local Business Entrepreneurs Tory Felkey of “All Media Bainbridge” Tells Her Story

Tory will tell her story of 18 years working as a storefront owner in downtown Bainbridge Island. Expert in Photoshop, Dreamweaver, WordPress, Web Design, Product Development, Internet Marketing, SEO, Brand Building, she and business partner Eric Swanson are co-entrepreneurs of this new business start-up. Eric, a skilled Flash and 3D designer, handles e-commerce solutions, development of new platforms, debugging, compliance and compatibility. 

Tory will also discuss intellectual property rights and the internet where it applies to ownership of your names, blog and website, and also the next incarnation of names on the internet and which social media tool is right for you. One of the services of All Media Bainbridge includes e-publishing.

A NEW BBC IDEA: For the opening 1/2 hour (7:30-8:00) before the formal meeting begins we’ll set up individual “cafe” tables allowing for informal small roundtable visiting, networking, open topic discussions. Back at our original home of the Blue Ocean Cafe, the 7:30-8:00 informal networking time was always well-attended because of this “cafe-table” model (of course back then it was a cafe). Let’s see if this might work at our present home of OfficeXpats. So, try to get to BBC this Friday around 7:30 to give the “cafe” idea a try!

NOTE: Tentative launch date for next Thursday evening BBC2 (6:00-7:00 PM @ OfficeXpats) will be October 4th. More information to follow soon on the BBC website and in the newsletters.

Invite your friends and associates to join us for this free, fun, and friendly event … and another delicious cup of BBC!
