This week we’re Getting to the Point in a slightly different manner. Last week, we declared a “bye” week to give the Exkalibur team a well-deserved break, but Murphy was lurking about and sent out today’s Quote of the Week this past Friday. You’re receiving this email today, which you should have received on Friday, so we can get back on schedule.
We’ll be back at the end of week with our full schedule.

Celebrate the Exkalibur University Opening With Us
One way we are celebrating the opening of Exkalibur University is by offering a free webinar, How to Create an Accountable Organization: 5 Essential Strategies You Can Immediately Put to Work. I have already written to you about this webinar. It’s a program that will absolutely help you build a more successful organization … so consider this a gentle reminder to take advantage of this FREE webinar tomorrow, Tuesday, September 26 at 9:00 AM. (Don’t worry. If you register but can’t make it or something comes up, I’ll send you a recording.)
For the first 10 people who join our Webinar, I will send you a free copy of Donald Miller’s forthcoming book, [Building a StoryBrand: Clarify Your Message So Customers Will Listen][miller], which will be publicly released on October 10. When you sign up, I’ll also make sure you immediately receive … at no cost to you … his audio lecture, The Secret to How Customers Think (a $49 value) AND his video lesson, Why Customers Really Buy (a $99 value).
Donald Miller is the CEO of StoryBrand and every year helps more than 3,000 business leaders clarify their brand message. Combined, Don’s books have spent more than a year on the New York Times Bestsellers list, and he was a featured speaker in May at Leadercast 2017.
Exkalibur University is LIVE
I’m happy to announce, however, after almost 2 years in development, that we have finally opened the doors to Exkalibur University.
Exkalibur University is the educational arm of The Exkalibur Organization. Throughout most of the last 10 years, Exkalibur University has only hosted live events … ranging from Cash Flow and Financial Acumen Workshops (spellcheck wanted to call this “clash flow”, which may be more apt? 😜) as well as Leadership Programs, Wine Industry Workshops and Leadercast LIVE, a telecast of the largest single day leadership event in the world with over 120,000 people attending.
Our Online Curriculum Will Debut Soon
Exkalibur University now begin to offer proprietary online courses to further serve our community.
The courses will provide online education across the fields of leadership, productivity and business finance and give me the opportunity to share some of the lessons I’ve learned over 40 years in the trenches.
We’ll also be hosting courses led by other very accomplished professionals that dovetail with our stated mission to Help YOU Become a More Effective Leader.
Stay tuned as some of our FREE Mini-Courses are rolled out and Core Curriculum courses are released.
