The next XcellR8 meeting will be held Thursday, April 14, 2011, from 8-9 am at Nerac.
Last month we heard from Mike Fleming at Iron Duck, www.ironduck.com, the world's leading provider of products to the emergency medical, fire fighting and law enforcement professional. Mike benefitted from the group’s input and insights with respect to potential opportunities in the further extension of his unique brand.
This month we’ll hear from Edwin Siebesma whose meeting productivity tool is now approaching beta stage. Edwin asks that meeting participants think about the efficiency and effectiveness of their meetings and what they see as pain points, if any. And if pain points were visible, how did you try to resolve them?
Edwin also seeks guidance about potential creative sales and distribution channels he might use once the product beta becomes public. BTW, until the beta goes public – all discussions must remain private and confidential. (the beta was released in May 2011)
In May, Robin Bienemann will introduce us to Jody Ferrer, CEO of Perfect Promotions. Jody will bring her business challenge/question for our next monthly gathering. And don’t forget that we’ll be reaching out to Keith Bessette in June to provide an update on the Shizzlr rollout.
