Networking Around the World
Theoretically, it’s an entirely business class flight, but the big topic of conversation is… who got business class? One attorney from Seattle is offering $400 for anyone who will give up their first class seat! Awesome networking opportunities abound in the One World lounge, as the 200 small business entrepreneurs meet and greet. There’s a sizable group from EO, an organization that is well represented with members from all over the West Coast. The Seattle bunch collectively accounts for $1 billion worth of annual business. The official welcome from British Airways spoke of the awful economic climate and how the the airline decided to “give the seats away.”
Representatives from the British consulate, and London and LA business development also spoke of their high hopes for this group.
