staying on track:

success in strategy and execution


On Tuesday and Wednesday, August 13-14, be part of a special guest appearance in The Loop with Larry Robertson, founder of Lighthouse Consulting.


>>The Topic: Success In Strategy And Execution

Successful companies don't merely have good plans, they execute well on those plans, in a focused way, and know when the plans have to change. On August 13-14 it's a new kind of special event in The Loop, an online working session on staying focused. Our guest will be Larry Robertson who will answer questions and share war stories from his many years as an advisor to startups in areas including managing growth, strategic planning, partnerships, and more. Larry founded Lighthouse Consulting in 1992, and, before that, filled roles with the Walt Disney Company in strategic planning and business development; Robertson, Stephens & Company in investment banking and venture capital; and J.P. Morgan in financial analysis and currency trading. Pull out your real-time challenges and we'll compare notes on planning and execution with Larry and other Loop members. The more minds, the better the solutions.

As Will Rogers said, even if you're on the right track, you'll get run over if you just stand there. 


>>How It Works: Continuing The Discussion

We'll start by introducing Larry with a preliminary Q&A posting on Tuesday morning, August 13. Following that, it's open season for your questions, comments and opinions. Here's just a few rules:

  1. Our focus is focus-- how to keep it so that you plan and execute more successfully. That leaves a wide range for topical questions about planning, strategy, targeting, and implementation. Be as practical and tactical as you like, and everyone is encouraged to share their experiences, challenges, and ideas.

  2. Questions and comments on related entrepreneurial topics are fine as well, although moderator Ben Martin may refocus the discussion if we stray too far. Absolutely no pitches or personal promotions, however, OK?

  3. Feel free to ask anything from broad, philosophical questions to specific, tactical ones, however ask them openly in the group. No private questions, please.

  4. Larry will monitor postings to The Loop and write responses during the two days as his schedule permits. (Nope, we couldn't get him to drop everything and wait by the keyboard.) All replies will be posted back to The Loop for continued discussion by members.

  5. Most important, keep in mind that events in The Loop are discussions, not just Q&As. Jump in with your own follow-ups, opinions, comments and advice in response to Larry's comments (or anyone else's). Just be courteous and act in accordance with The Loop guidelines.

  6. Remember! Do not interpret any feedback you receive from Larry or any other member of the The Loop as legal advice. Always seek counsel from an experienced attorney on all matters that may require a legal opinion.

Start prepping. This will be a great opportunity to compare notes and solicit ideas from colleagues on how to meet the real world challenges you're facing today. If you're not already a member of The Loop, subscribe now.
