The TBIBC Summit was a wonderful showcase of inclusive and international business. I deeply appreciate the contribution of our
sponsors, speakers, panelist and the hundreds of participants who attended. The entire Rusty Pelican (Grand Ballroom, and all five function rooms) were a great setting for this event, and I congratulate the other Board members who also worked very hard to make it a success.
The audience burst into spontaneous applause during the NASA plenary breakfast presentation by Kelvin Manning, and the “meet 60 people in 60 minutes” speed networking was a huge success.
Dr. Mike Nastanski of St Leo let the most intellectually challenging breakout session, Strategic Partnerships. Many participants chose to Meet the Presidents of the Eleven Chambers, and Mark Yegge’s negotiations class was very popular. Morgan McGrath’s lunch time keynote presentation had many people taking notes as he gave the latest numbers and economic picture.
The Entrepreneurship Panel was a real inspiration as Dr. Michael Fountain led six diverse entrepreneurs through a series of questions about how they achieved success, and what the audience could learn from their example.
The next TBIBC event is on March, 28th. There are numerous Chamber events amongst the various Chambers, and new TBIBC events are being planned. To be included on our mailing list, or to be a sponsor, please contact me at email@example.com.
