Experimental Virtual/In-person BBC Friday 9 July 2021 @OfficeXpats

Welcome to our first post-COVID hybrid BBC Friday, both in-person and virtual Zoomed. @OfficeXpats

For those fully vaccinated, you may join us at OfficeXpats this Friday for our first kinda-post-COVID combination virtual (Zoom) and in-person BBC Friday. We’ll continue to use the same vBBC Zoom meeting link for those who want to stay virtual (late risers, south end islanders, cross the bridge BBC regulars, off world space travelers).

Discussion topic: How can we do a “hybrid virtual & in-person” business meeting (some Zoomed in on the big screen and some in person here at OfficeXpats)? How does one moderate a hybrid meeting? How do we hold a roundtable discussion when half are at the table and half are on the virtual table on the big screen? A total BBC Experiment In Virtual/Non-virtual Reality.

Previous meeting’s discussion notes: BBC_YearWhatever_9July2021

Be here, be free, be businesswise. For, in a sense, me hearties, as serial entrepreneurials, we all be business wise! Really.

So Invite your friends and associates to join us for this oddly HYBRID event in real time & real space … and another delicious cup of BBC!
