I have it on my calendar. Is there an agenda of what to expect and how long? Should I eat dinner beforehand or is it included? Any cost or homework to be done? I apologize for the many questions but I want to be prepared. Thanks.

Glad to hear you plan to join us.

Good questions.

Dinner is available from the restaurant.  We typically order at least appetizers and beverages, sometimes dinner.  Not mandatory.

Cost-wise, be prepared to cover your portion of the food and beverages.  The restaurant has pay parking and valet parking available.  Those cost too.  I forget the exact fees.

No homework at this point.  Generally folks discuss their operation or recent podcasts or current news.  So, you can prep in these areas.

There is a fairly set agenda.  I'll post that in a few minutes.

Please let us know if you have more questions.

Ok, credit goes to Kate and Dave for putting together the agenda.  Let's use it again.

1. Welcome/Introductions if there are newcomers (7:00 p.m.) - Who you are, where you're from, when and why you discovered Manager Tools.

2. Update from last meeting (7:15) – Have you overcome any of the challenges you mentioned in the last meeting? How did you do it and what was the outcome?

3. Your most powerful manager tool(s) (8:00 p.m.) Which tools have been the most successful/effective for you? Why? Are there any that you've tried that haven't worked?

4. Adjourn (9:00 p.m. or whenever).

I love how BJ created this agenda about a year ago and I keep getting credit for it. Sweeeeet! I'll be there.

Thanks to all that attended last night. I enjoyed the discussions and look forward to meeting up again soon.


I don't think we decided who will be organizing the next one? Any takers?

Aside from M-T application, we typically cover extremely important tangents. The correlation (causation?) between coffee and the Renaissance comes to mind. Also, like last night, inventions.

Sadly, some of our key inventions are already claimed:

Dude. DOOOOOOOOOOOOODE! I'm so disappointed that my intensity brake light idea is already patented. I suppose it's my own fault since I have been talking about this since I was 16 when I used to get into car accidents on a routine basis. You snooze, you lose I suppose.

Great seeing you guys last night! I'll be in charge of the next one, though I might venture into Virginia. Scary, I know. Enjoy this YouTube video in preparation:
