This BBC Friday we have a special OfficeXpats April [email protected] Sneak-peek preview of BBC Regular Charlie King’s workshop series Understanding the Elephant: Growing with LinkedIn®
The Bizarre, the Ugly, and the Outstandingly Fabulous ways to interact & be seen on LinkedIn! Charlie will highlight for us some horrific examples of profiles gone bad, strange endorsements, and assorted funny stuff.
LinkedIn Business Networking: Last year Karen Klein led us in a couple excellent LinkedIn Intro sessions! Now learn how LinkedIn increasingly dominates the social networking world for businesses.
NOTE: All four sessions of the OXp workshops are offered as a package at a huge discount! Normally valued at $180, only 20 seats are being offered, and for only $79. No discounts given for classes not attended. OfficeXpats members get to attend these amazing workshops for free, and a few seats may be available at the door to replace no-shows. Don’t be late grabbing your seat! (CharlieKingCoaching.com)
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!

OXp WON! OfficeXpats is the 2014 Chamber of Commerce Small Business of the Year! “It was an honor just to be nominated, and it is kinda crazy that we actually won. We are very excited. This award is based on contribution to the Chamber’s mission, and to the Bainbridge community at large. In our case, it is therefore connected in so many ways to the efforts of our devoted team of ambassadors, and to an informal offshoot of the Chamber, the Bainbridge Business Connection, which meets every Friday morning at OfficeXpats. I’m sure we got a lot of credit for hosting BBC, but the reverse is also true: BBC is a huge supporter of OfficeXpats. I’m very proud of the ongoing partnership.”
