What's Happening at ESC

Here are the highlights of recent activity in the members' forum.

The Book Club read "Kotler on Marketing" by Philip Kotler. This stimulated discussions on topics such as identifying profitable customers, rapid changes in the marketplace, what customers care about, using a sales force, working well with suppliers and service providers, the importance of research, and handling customer complaints.

The June Book Club selection is "Ogilvy on Advertising" by David Ogilvy.

If you don't have time for all the books, that's okay. The discussions are structured so that you can benefit from the main ideas even without having read the books.

Some other recent topics in the forum:

  • Changes in the software marketplace
  • Irrational decision making
  • Intuition vs. logic
  • Improving websites
  • Taste tests
  • Site license pricing
  • The Port Angeles Schmooze
  • And more!
