Our scheduled speaker for this week cannot make it due to a work conflict that has arisen. We'll get him rescheduled for a later date. So for this week we'll go with Open Forum Networking & Discussion.
0700-0800: Introductions, Assistance, Open Forum Discussion
Tell us a bit about yourself and any networking needs. We can help with referrals, advice, job search assistance, and other business discussion. You're also welcome to bring up any interesting news or topics for discussion. With an Open Forum this week, there is more time for in-depth discussion or assistance.
2. SPEAKER SCHEDULE:
5 APR (this week): Open Forum Networking & Discussion.
12 APR: Open/TBD. This date is available for a speaker.
19 APR: Joe Gregory will speak on his topic titled "Sales for Those Who Don't Think They're in Sales." Mr. Gregory is a sales coach who helps to improve this vital skill for anyone in personal or corporate sales, and also, as his topic suggests, for those who don't think they're in sales.
26 APR: Dr. George Reed will give a talk titled "Toxic Leadership." Dr. Reed is Dean, School of Public Affairs, at the University of Colorado Colorado Springs (UCCS). Much of his professional focus and published works have centered on leadership topics, which will be the focus of his presentation with us.
If there's a speaker you'd like to invite for an upcoming Tuesday, just let me know at email@example.com.
Remember that you can be the speaker yourself. Got an interesting topic or a problem that you'd like to put to the group? Or maybe you gained new insight from a business book or a conference. Those are just a few examples of great topics for leading a discussion.
Have a great week.
