Here's a unique opportunity for a select group to become part of an
exciting project. Your participation is invited.
Our friends at Public Broadcasting's PBS: The Business Channel are filming
an interective learning session entitled "Leading Change and Innovation"
with management guru Oren Harari as part of it's Learning Curve series.
Harari is the author of the book "Leapfrogging The Competition." The
session will be videotaped at the Newseum in Arlington, Virginia and PBS is
looking for some 50-60 savvy audience members (like yourselves) to attend
the taping on March 24 from 1-3 PM. They contacted us at the Netpreneur
Program because they are looking for people who will be able to ask
meaningful questions that are truly pertinent to building a business in
this new world. Harari will be discussing successful organizational and
management strategies for how to stay ahead of the competition, including
five company case studies. The session will become a course that PBS
markets to businesses and others. Attendance is free, but you must contact
PBS to participate.
If you would like to attend, contact Jonah Goldberg or Meg Bratton of PBS
at firstname.lastname@example.org or 202-862-4876. Jonah tells me he's having a
(hopefully short-lived) email problems, so if you have any troubles
reaching he or Meg, contact me via email and I will forward your interest
on. Please be sure to include your phone number and email address.
This looks like a great learning opportunity. We invite you to take
advantage of it.
Here's some background.
