Join CEO colleagues at the internationally known Paul Downs woodworking facility. Paul Downs, author of "Boss Life: Surviving My Own Small Business" and New York Times "You're the Boss" blogger, will give a brief talk over breakfast about the adventure of creating and running his business, along with the ups and down, the stumbles and successes. We will also have an opportunity to tour the woodworking facility, where Paul grew from one person, himself, with some cheap tools, to 19 highly skilled craftspeople, an array of the most modern computer controlled equipment, and a 33,000 square foot shop. We will be able to see extraordinary talented woodworkers at their craft.
