Friday August 8th we will do our 2nd Annual BBC Pancake Breakfast (including, for old times sake, waffles – and who knows what else, SPAM maybe).  (Note: the only time spam is allowed at OXp is when it comes in a can!) So come and join in, and if you’d like to contribute a breakfast item – regular or gluten-free! – please let Dave Kragen know at [email protected].

HANDOUT From our  25 July Friday BBC: On July 25th we picked up the discussion from the previous week’s roundtable, Closing The Deal, Getting Paid, with Asking Good Questions or Question-based Selling. It was a lively time! Bill Ruddick put together a page of notes on “Clossed Questions” vs. “Open Questions”: BBC_25July2014_AskingQuestions.pdf . (Original meeting notes: BBC_25July2014_handout.pdf .)

See you all next time on August 8th for our annual BBC Pancake Breakfast!
