The mission of the Arts & Business Council of Greater Philadelphia is
to develop creative partnerships between the arts and business
communities in Philly, it’s both enhancing the business skills of the arts
sector and promoting creative engagement within the business sector.
It’s a great source for those in business, as well as those who want to work with business in Philly. I know my readers are always interested in the seminars, author events, networking parties and the programs they offer.
Last week the Arts & Biz Council hosted Malcolm Gladwell: The Art of Battling Giants. There was an amazing turnout of nearly 800 people for the 10AM event. Each attendee received a copy of the book too.

Each author and networking event is held at a different location. Last weeks event was held at the U of Penn museum. I really like these events, they’re laid back, people are really amiable to networking, and exchanging business cards. It’s a great way to really see where the potential of your company can go.
Karin Copeland, Executive Director Arts + Business Council of Greater Philadelphia greets the guests and welcomes them to another Arts & Business Council of Greater Philadelphia (ABC) networking and author discussion event.
Malcolm Gladwell, author of David and Goliath as well as several other books, one I read myself, can you believe it. It was called the Tipping Point, and I read it at the beginning of my career a few years back. I really like it and refer to the concepts in my life ongoing.
