Business Edge: Focused on Solutions

Business Edge: Focused on Solutions


Business Edge is an opportunity for business professionals at all levels to discuss topics in a small group with other professionals. Abilene Industrial Foundation in conjunction with Develop Abilene are hosting a monthly online roundtable. It will be held during lunch with a business providing an overview of a topic and the rest of the participants providing input through idea generation and sharing. This is designed for the business professional who is solution-focused and is energized by small group dialogue.

Participants will then have an opportunity to ask questions, provide examples from their own work place and share what they know. At the end of the discussion, participants will have gained additional knowledge and connected with other professionals in the community.

Participation is limited to 10 individuals.

You can even eat lunch while you join us!
