Member Solutions, the host of Business Bootcamp Conference & Awards, today announced the latest addition to the conference agenda: small group Lunch and Learns. This addition gives Business Bootcamp attendees guaranteed face time with a leading industry authority and the opportunity to receive individual business guidance. Business Bootcamp will be held on Saturday, October 5, 2013 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania at the Hyatt Regency at Penn’s Landing.

“We’ve been to Lunch and Learns where there is one presentation among a big crowd of attendees. You struggle to hear what the presenter is saying — and it’s hard to really focus,” said Joe Galea, Senior Vice President of Client Relations and Business Development for Member Solutions. “These Lunch and Learns are different. Each roundtable has just 10 spots to facilitate one-on-one interaction and deliver greater value to attendees.”
