Next Monthly Meeting


Thirty years in punk rock as the singer of multiple touring bands has taught Greg Bennick a thing or two about frustration and channeling energy in positive directions. 

Join Seattle NACE on January 8, 2019 and listen to Greg share his insights, and give a perspective on life, business, and frustration. Greg will ask us to consider some simple notions: frustration is fuel and our own minds are powerful enough to define our future. If we let frustration get the best of us, we fail. If we let others define our dreams, we fail. As we begin this new year, Greg will challenge us to rediscover our clarity, focus, and passion with his Punk Rock Guide to Getting Things Done.
