Last-minute invitation

I'm giving a talk to the Houston Property Rights Association during lunch this Friday titled "Taking Houston from Good to Great: Applying lessons from a business bestseller." The talk will include a discussion of what makes Houston distinctive, a key economic metric for Houston, and a proposed identity for our city. The public is welcome to attend.

Here's their announcement:
Moving from good to better...maybe best!

This Friday (12/9) Houston businessman and blogger Tory Gattis will present his conclusions on Houston as a good city with prospects of becoming a great one. Tory operates a web software firm and runs the HoustonStrategies.com web-log which dwells on improving Houston. He is currently working with the TSU School of Public Affairs on a study of Houston as an “engine of social mobility.”

PUBLIC INVITED: $12. Courtyard restaurant; 1885 St. James Place —Friday noon, December 9, 2005

(directions: The Courtyard is south of San Felipe, west of Yorktown, and east of Chimney Rock)
Hope to see you there.

How'd this go?

I actually could have made it if I'd checked the blog last night.

It went well. We had a lively and engaged group of around 15 with some great Q&A. I do have the Powerpoint notes if anyone's interested - just email me at tgattis (at) pdq.net.
