If there's a speaker you'd like to invite for a future Tuesday, just let me know at

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


Have a great week.
