Play, share, tell tall tales. Bring a business story to share — who you are, why you love doing what you do, what you’ve learned along the way, where you’re going, your business dreams (dream interpretation/analysis not guaranteed). Have a business problem? BBC can be “your board of directors.”

Play, share, learn, dream … fall asleep. A total BBC-OXp adventure!  Remember, at the BBC, “We don’t exist, but we’re there for you.”
