Igniting Your Business Idea or Business

People who consider or start a business struggle over one or more of the same three things: their business idea, the marketing message, and finding where their customers are.

Bob Graham, CEO of Breakthrough Solutions, has helped hundreds of businesses with these issues.

March 11, 2021, 6pm – Business Roundtable

Bob Graham will moderate a discussion among some of the area’s most successful leaders, who will dish their business secrets. Fire all those questions you wouldn’t have anyone to ask at people who are ready to tell.

Bob Graham coaches and trains business leaders and entrepreneurs on how to be more effective. He taught business courses at Johns Hopkins University and ran a national business plan competition. He launched two businesses of his own and helped dozens of other businesses start and scale.
