Our new home, Thunder Bay Grille

Beginning with our morning session and our Lunch and Learn on September 27, we’ll be enjoying a new venue for Wisconsin Business Owners meetups: the Thunder Bay Grille.

Thunder Bay Grille (sepia)

Thunder Bay Grille

N14 W24130 Tower Place
Pewaukee, WI 53072

We’ll normally be using the Anglers room, a private room with seating for sixty.  Another room is available with seating for 120 if needed.

The food is great, and our menus will be similar to the all-you-can eat buffets we’ve enjoyed for over fifteen years at the Best Western Midway.  Our new venue is a few exits west on I-94, then turn right (north) on Pewaukee Road, and then left at the first stop light, Tower Place.  Click for Directions.

Our morning workshop (with coffee bar) and Lunch & Learn pricing remains the same.

We’re very impressed with the relaxed, yet professional environment, and with the staff’s eagerness to please.  If you’re looking for a place for your event, we recommend you contact Laura Michel at 262-523-4244 to learn more.

We’ll be announcing our Friday, September 27th events shortly.

You may want to set aside October time for Wisconsin Business Owners events at Thunder Bay Grille on the following dates as well:

Dave Wallace became WisOwners Member #1,800 on May 19th, and attended Mark Mullarky’s Lunch & Learn presentation on Computer Security the last Friday in May. 

Meetup.com is a great site.  Unlike most websites with the goal of making everything easier to do online, Meetup.com makes it easier for people to meet IRL – In Real Life.  Meetup.com makes it easy for your to find people with similar interests, whether personal or professional, and to get together with those like-minded folks.  

I recently attended a weekend-long workshop with half of our Wisconsin Business Owners Organizers and about a half dozen of our Members in attendance.  Dave Wallace and I were seated next to one another for most of the sessions.  It was, indeed a pleasure to get to know him.  (We’re both proud grandfathers!)  I might never have had that opportunity were it not for our meeting at a Wisconsin Business Owners Lunch & Learn.

Wisconsin Business Owners Hurdles 1,000 Member Mark!

Wisconsin Business Owners Tops 1,000 Members

Wisconsin Business Owners Group shot October 2015

Wisconsin Business Owners at October, 2015 morning session

I’m thankful for much this holiday weekend.  One of the professional milestones is the growth of Wisconsin Business Owners.

Wisconsin Business Owners surpassed the 1,000 Member milestone about the 12th of October, 2015.

I attribute our continued growth to a number of things:

  • Adding Maggie Mongan of Brilliant Breakthroughs, Inc. as a co-organizer.
  • Maggie promptly recruiting a great group of fellow organizers to join Karin Conway, Maggie and me.
  • Continued quality of our presenters, great people delivering quality content.
  • The continued outstanding meals and service at the Midway Hotel.  Our chef got a standing ovation at our last Lunch & Learn!
  • Meetup.com continues to be a great tool for managing meetups and attracting new members.
  • Our Members themselves ~ many bring a friend, who brings a friend next time…that’s organic growth and we continue to enjoy meeting new people.

We encourage new members.  You don’t have to know someone to join…much of our whole purpose is meeting new people and developing relationships that last.  If you have questions, call Keith at 262-853-7900 to learn more.  We’ll make it easy to join (and it is free to join) by adding a Meetup video showing you how to sign up (again, for free!).

Thanks to all our Members, and on behalf of all our Members, we hope your holiday is filled with peace, prosperity, health and happiness for you and yours.


Keith Klein

p.s.: At the time of writing, November 28, we’ve added 79 more Wisconsin Business Owners members to our ranks!  That makes for another 7.9 % growth in members (on a much larger base) in just the last six weeks!

 Great group. Keith strives to book presenters that offer real-world solutions that we can take back and implement immediately. Even if the topic doesn’t appeal to me that day, I take notes so I can revisit the subject matter later.

What makes the WBO stand out is the value that is provided to each attendee every month.
