It's a shame I discovered this site and thread so late. I hope more events and conversations such as these will take place again. Would love to participate and learn from other business folks.
I'm really sorry that I read this information too late and so miss my question. Is there any incoming chat of Business USA? I'm looking forward for such event
IBM, Caterpillar, Citi, Facebook, UPS, Johns Hopkins University and ManpowerGroup..that is the heavy hitters there. Would've liked to have been a part of this. I will look out for the next one.
Good ways to promote & motivate small business, though many like me may have missed this opportunity, hope more such initiative like business weeks will be maintained from time to time.
Awesome, we missed the first one so hopefully we'll be able to participate this time around. Maybe you should have another July post so people know who haven't gone back in the blog archive? Looking forward to see what people will tweet!
Congratulation.. But unfortunately, I've missed this event.. maybe i'm not the lucky one.. I hope, I will not miss the next event..
