Helping Solo Professionals Develop and Grow Their Businesses and Effectively Serve Their Clients
We have expanded our series of lunchtime meet-ups! Join us for lunch at the Tavern in the Square, Porter Square, Cambridge, Friday, July 28, at 1 p.m.
As in Burlington, there is no need to register in advance, and there’s no fee to attend other than the cost of your meal. Just show up at the restaurant and ask for the Society of Professional Consultants table.
The Tavern in the Square is accessible by the Red Line (Porter Square), as well as MBTA Commuter Rail (the Fitchburg Line, also at the Porter Square station) and four bus lines.
The restaurant also offers free parking in its own lot plus validated parking in the adjacent lot. The Tavern’s own spaces are accessible by a driveway on the north side of the building (the far side if you are coming from Harvard Square). If you are coming down Mass Ave from Arlington or points north (that is, if you are heading toward Harvard Square) your best option may be the pay lot. Turn left at the light just short of the Porter T station, onto Somerville Avenue, and then right onto Beacon and right again onto Roseland Street. Be not dismayed by construction. With restaurant validation, your parking should be free in that lot, too.
Remember: No registration is required!
SPC members have long expressed an interest in an additional channel for unstructured networking and just plain schmoozing about their business triumphs and trials. We launched our Meetups a while back, and have received very positive feedback from those participating ... and so we’re pleased to announce our next Lunchtime Meetup, to be held Friday, August 11, at 1 p.m.
For those who haven't yet participated, here’s how it works: You just show up!
No need to register or pay a fee.
We push tables together until there’s room for everyone. Find yourself something appealing to nosh on, settle at the cash register, and join the group.
We’ve picked 1 p.m. on a Friday as our start time to avoid the crush and let people take as much time as they feel they can afford…and maybe start a new conversation they can pick up later!
Our Favorite Tech Toys – Not So Strictly Business
Summer is finally here, and it’s not too early to sign up for SPC’s annual summer barbecue.
This year’s event will feature a panel discussion, led by former SPC president Steve Balzac, of 7 Steps Ahead, LLC. Our presenters will share their hot tips on their favorite new and maybe not-so-new technologies. And there will be opportunity for attendees to do some show-and-tell of their own. So come prepared to share your favorite whizbang gizmos as well as to learn about other people’s.
And because it’s summer, the presentations won’t be all strictly business tools. Come prepared to share, or learn about, devices and apps that will make your life more fun, and not just more efficient or productive.
We’ve done this kind of session before, with new toys each time because the technology keeps changing. It’s always been well received, and it’s always interesting to see what we can learn from one another.
