We’ll start with “Mindfully Practicing Our Elevator Speeches.” (Which means ya gotta bring your brains, caffeinated, conscious … semi-conscious?)
Then we’ll gather around, light a fire in the virtual-reality hearth, and offer the MIC to anyone who would like to “Share Their Business Story.”
How’s That Work? When we began BBC in January of 2009 seven years ago, one of our hallmark goals was sharing each other’s stories together: as business folks, as homosapients. Where we come from. What we’ve learned along the way. Finding the lessons and wisdom in our stories.
If there’s time, we might put on the table for general discussion: “What things are changing from the way we used to work – in the general world of business, or specifically in your own business?”
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!
