Charlie Askanas & John Edwards, Tom Knight & Jerry Jensen
9:00am-1:00pm - Eight available appointments
On a monthly basis, SCORE (Service Corp for Retired Executives) sends two of their counselors with experience in the high tech industry to the SDF Center. While we call it one-on-one advisory meetings, SDF members usually have the benefit of meeting with two SCORE counselors for a 50 minute session to receive help with various aspects of their business. Our members have found these meetings to be very valuable. SCORE One-on-Ones are available to SDForum Members only on a first-come, first-served basis.
Call Julie at 408.494.8311 to schedule a one-on-one appointment.
