Pinnacle Society in New Orleans

Wow! We just had a fantastic meeting at the Ritz Carlton in New Orleans. The French Quarter seems good as ever but I didn’t have any prior experience of the place before my Fordyce Forum trip in June. Our Pinnacle speakers included Jason Davis from right here at to talk about the Fordyce Letter, Don Breckenridge from with a great presentation on Balanced Scorecard and Author/Blogger/Entrepreneur Penelope Trunk from The Brazen Careerist with an extremely entertaining update on how to handle the shrinking supply of new professionals trickling into the job market. Of course, we also had plenty of time to pick each other’s brains which is reason enough to be there. I even won some money playing poker at Harrah’s. Even though Pinnacle has reached the bylaw’s limit of 75 members we always welcome new applications. Please check us out at Also, we are available for training events. Check the Pinnacle Panel page on the website.
