Welcome to the "Sizzlin Summer 2011 Shirt-Sleeve Workshop Sessions"


Each Month through the summer with the help of both CSE Group members and local small business experts, we are going to take 2 hours out of our normal CSE Group Monthly Meeting, to present a specific area of skill sets and techniques that are of interest to our members that will take you through the process of creating a product or service, building a business around your idea, and then enabling it for success.

We will post the workshop leaders on the meetup and CSE Group .ORG site as soon as they are confirmed.  If you are interested in participating as a workshop leader please feel free to contact me at:  This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it

June 2011 Workshop:

Next month in June we are going to start off our series and present some unique tips and techniques for "Envisionerring" that will allow you to brain-storm, brand, and build an innovative product or service idea from scratch so that you can take it to the next step in the process. This will include brainstorming strategies, branding techniques, competitive market analysis, pricing tips, and market positioning ideas.

We will then follow-up in July with the "Engineering" Workshop which will help you build a business around your idea, and then in August we will finish with the "Enabling" Workshop to show you how to put all the pieces together.  (More about these other workshops in upcoming event and schedule posts).

Summer Meetup Formats:

I have already posted the three Meetup Dates with a preliminary agenda that goes into more detail about these meetings and workshops.  Below are the links to each of the monthly meetups from the meetup site:


Support Web-Page and Forums:

We will also be posting these schedules and agenda here on the CSE Group .ORG site where we will be creating a special support web-page and forum that will support the workshops before, during, and after the events so that you have a complete resource of information to draw from after the workshops are complete.

Workshop Leaders:

We are in the process of developing our workshop agenda's and speakers so if you are interested in participating and contributing as a workshop speaker, leader, or panel participant, please feel free to contact me:  This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it   I'm interested in speaking with you if you would like to lead the complete monthly workshop in terms of managing the main theme and pulling together all the guest speakers and workshop leaders, or if you are a subject matter expert in a specific area and would like to speak, participate in a panel or lead a session.

Business Speakers and Entrepreneurial Presenters:

Also, to support our ongoing Monthly Meetup Format, if you are interested in being one of our monthly business speakers, (for a 30 minute speech on a topic of your choosing that would be of interest to our group) or would like to make an entrepreneurial presentation, (5 minutes with a 5minute Q&A) let me know as we are now beginning to schedule speakers for the summer.  Just send me an e-mail and let me know you are interested.  This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
