AKG Perception 120 USB condenser microphone with SH 100 shock mountJoin us this Friday for another exciting – it has been awhile – BBC “Your Board Of Directors” business problem solving strategy roundtable.

So, it’s play/share/learn time. Bring your problems (business, not mental) to troubleshoot or ponder thoughtfully. The whole session will be for taking care of one another. We can also share some business learned wisdom and show-and-tell.

ThinkClubAnd there will be time to hone your elevator speech, brand tag-line, business description — and just pitch ideas and brainstorm with a group of fellow-travelers. A total mental adventure!

Last BBC Think Club – thinkologist Bill Ruddick’s THE 5 FACES OF CREATIVITY (google pdf doc) useful for strategy roundtabling.

Be here, be free, be businesswise. For, in a sense, me scurvy seadogs, 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!
