My weekly post yesterday had incorrect dates for our November speakers -- it listed Wednesdays instead of Tuesdays. Our meetings are still on Tuesdays.
Here's a recap of upcoming speakers, with the correct dates:
27 Oct: This week BizNet member J.J. Mackin (USNA '68) will give an informal report (with photos) on his recent trip to the Northeast, which included attendance at the christening of the USS Illinois. The Illinois is a Virginia-class attack submarine in the same class as the USS Colorado, which is under construction and will follow the Illinois in joining the fleet. J.J. is chairman of the USS Colorado Commissioning Committee.
3 Nov: Dave Jackson (USMA '73) will give a book review of ʺThe Monk Who Sold His Ferrari: A Fable About Fulfilling Your Dreams and Reaching Your Destinyʺ by motivational speaker and author Robin Sharma. The overview will discuss an inspiring tale that provides a step-by-step approach to living with greater courage, balance, abundance and joy.
10 Nov: TBD/Open Networking.
17 Nov: Karen Susman will talk with us about how to improve our presenting and networking skills. She is a professional communications coach with 30 years of expereince in speaking, consulting, and coaching. Her client list includes Marriott Hotels, NBC, American Express, CH2M Hill, American Council of Engineering Companies, University of Denver, Inc. Magazine, and many others.
A great slate of speakers this next few weeks, so hope you can join us on a Tuesday morning soon.
