19 Jan (this week):  Karen Susman - see above. 

26 Jan:  TBD/Open

If there's a speaker you'd like to invite for a future Tuesday, I'll be glad to put it on our schedule.  Just let me know at

Remember that you can be the speaker yourself.   Got an interesting topic?  A vexing problem to solve that you'd like to put to the group?  Or maybe gained new insight from a business book or conference?  Those are just a few examples of topics on which to lead a discussion. 


Have a great week.
