Two years ago to the day, we at BBC went virtual. Next week Washington State will see a loosening of Covid-19 restrictions.
Discussion: What does this change mean for BBC, for our host OfficeXpats, and for our businesses and community?
Note: April 1st will be our first in-person BBC Friday meeting at OfficeXpats! (Though it’s April Fools Day, we are nonetheless actually meeting at OfficeXpats – like, for real.)
March 25th, there will be no BBC.
The final virtual BBC (on Zoom) will be March 18th, a cybersecurity update and discussion. A fitting subject for the present world situation. Stay safe, be well.
Notes from this week’s meeting: vBBC_11March2022
Be here – like oddly familiarly virtually – 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 this strangely familiar virtual-in-the-cloud event in real e-time and real e-space … and another delicious cup of vBBC!
