Welcome to BBNE, "where integrity rules and brainpower fuels!"

We've moved off the Meetup platform to regular email, so please read the rest of this description and email organizers directly at nfirestone@verizon.net with your full name, company name, city in which you live or work, phone number and email address in the body of the email if you'd like to join us. If you're a good person, we'd love to have you. But that is the only way we are accepting new members.

This group of Hampton Roads, Va.-based business people and entrepreneurs includes people from an array of fields who connect, engage, learn and share within an environment built on the dynamic exchange of creative thought, expertise, mutual support and ethical integrity. Core goals include:

1) Learning - Monthly 30- to 45-minute presentations by member and non-member experts provide professional guidance, insights and information pertaining to an array of business-related topics. Post-presentation group discussions incorporate brainstorming, ideas exchange and problem-solving in areas that present challenges to group members at the time.

2) Networking - Relaxed, informal business networking promotes personal and professional connections among members.

3) Integrity - Please read the BBNE "Standards of Mutual Respect," which includes points about confidentiality and trust regarding the business models and practices of fellow members: www.stepbysteppresentations.com/business-networking-standards-of-mutual-respect.html

We look forward to your presence at our regular first-Monday-of-the-month meetings!

Sincerely,

Nora Firestone (current organizer)

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
