Breaking Down the (Demountable) Walls: Tools for Change

Demountable walls are not new to the market place. For years they have been used for glass storefront systems but things are changing. Lead by the partnerships of corporations with design and engineering firms, installers and contractors; there is a new way of thinking about demountable walls. Demountable walls are now fully-integrated into the architecture of a space and are being reconfigured and moved more than ever. Our panel discussion will explore the how, who, what, and why of this evolution of change. Why corporations are moving in this direction, who is designing the infrastructure kit of parts to meet the end-user space needs, and how is the product inventory managed? We will be exploring two approaches currently in the market place and hear about real world applications on how the process and product delivers end results.Come hear how the TJX Companies and Liberty Mutual Insurance have figured out how to successfully use these tools for change.

Day 2 -- Dashboard Design for Communicating Healthcare Data

Properly designed, data dashboards have enormous potential to help healthcare professionals visually identify and monitor at a glance the most important information needed to think, reason and make informed healthcare decisions. Yet this potential has not been realized. This is because the skills that are required simply are not taught, nor are they intuitive.

Currently, dashboards used to communicate healthcare data are more typically poorly designed, at best failing to and at worst even incorrectly communicating the critical information used to measure performance, communicate information to patients and identify the right opportunities for change and improvement to our healthcare systems. And in healthcare, perhaps more than any other industry, we just cant afford poor data communication.

This full-day course delivers that hard-to-find, hands-on training in the best and most effective design practices. Its also interactive, with a combination of lecture and small group case study activities, and designed to give you the tools you need to accurately and effectively present your healthcare data via a dashboard.

Heres what you will learn:

  • A brief history and definition of data dashboards
  • The current state of dashboardsproblems revealed and opportunities identified
  • The most common dashboard design mistakes?
  • How to use human visual perceptions to design effective dashboards
  • The guiding principles of dashboard design?
  • Understanding the three basic types of dashboards
  • How to differentiate between a dashboard and a report
  • Different graphs and visualizations that are especially useful in dashboards
  • The features of a well-designed dashboard?
  • How to determine the best medium to display your healthcare data
  • How to organize your dashboard to impart information at a glance?
  • How to connect risk-adjusted healthcare data to the underlying statistics in a dashboard
  • How to make your dashboard aesthetically pleasing
  • How to test your design for usability

AfterFab - the Solo Music of the Beatles

Click on image for larger view

AfterFab - the solo music of the Beatles

What can you expect from an AfterFab show? A high-energy, passionate tribute to the mega-classic canon of The Beatles' solo years, the only one in the world, played with high fidelity to the original studio recordings. Beatles fans are absolutely everywhere and this unique concept and focus draws them in droves. It's something new and different for Beatles and classic-rock fans, and general audiences, thanks to 70 US Top-40 hits and 325 million records collectively sold by John, Paul, George, and Ringo, post-Beatles. The genius didn't stop with Abbey Road. This is the classic Beatles music that fans have been missing.

AfterFab is a formidable six-member powerhouse of long-experienced Beatles-expert musicians with a dynamic, entertaining front man and a talent for getting the music right. Not impersonators, but a music-first tribute along the lines of Brit Floyd, Get The Led Out, or The Fab Faux. Based in New England, the band began in 2012, designed from the start as a concert attraction for top music clubs, performing-arts spaces, theatres, and venues that desire to present something special for guests. Misson-driven to convey the brilliance of the solo Beatles' legacy, AfterFab adds extra dimensions of entertainment with back-stories of the songs, fascinating trivia, and video of images of solo Beatles LPs, singles, adverts, and quotations.

"When I first thought of a tribute exclusively to the solo Beatles," says guitarist Ad Boc," I was sure I'd find others doing it. But tributing a 'band' that never actually existed is apparently an idea outside the box. 'Brilliant concept' has been an oft-repeated compliment. The Beatles were my first musical love, and it's exciting to be bringing their solo stuff to live audiences." Ad led original indie-rock bands for 20 years, and his first recruit was long-time collaborator Tom Evans on drums. Next to jump enthusiastically aboard was experienced singer/front-man Jonathan Paquin, a devotee of Paul McCartney and Robert Plant. "I brought myself up on the solo stuff before I discovered The Beatles," says Jon, "I knew Admiral Halsey before I knew Lovely Rita." It then took a year's trial and error to find the rest.

Mike Bishop nailed his bass audition on the first try, no surprise after having logged years in original and cover bands throughout New England and New York. Next in was keyboardist Bryan Eyberg, a pro music instructor with a Master's Degree in Music Performance. Rounding out the line-up is Lauren Passarelli, the first woman ever to graduate as a guitar performance major from Berklee College of Music, where she now teaches and is known as "The Beatles Professor" for her extreme expertise regarding all things Fab Four.

AfterFab constantly build their repertoire of chart hits and iconic album cuts, seeking to please any audience. "Thrilled!" "Elated!" and "Amazing!" were the actual words from management of three venues AfterFab played consecutively in 2014, and the shows got even better from there. The band has been discovered and hailed with excitement by Beatles authors like Robert Rodriguez and Ricardo Pugialli. "They did the solo stuff and rocked it!" said organizer/promoter Charles Rosenay on the radio, following AfterFab's appearance at his 2014 Fab 4 Music Festival: Danbury Fields Forever. MC and radio host Ken Michaels remarked, "They played with a passion. You could see it in their faces. They really practiced and studied the music. And the lead singer, he was outrageous!"

Disruption: A New Film By Pamela Yates 14th Annual International Womens Day Observance

In Celebration of International Women's Day - Documentary Screening Disruption: A New Film By Pamela Yates

A reception will follow the screening, sponsored by Ameriprise Financial. Co-presented by Berkshire Human Rights Speaker Series.

In Pamela Yatess new film, a group of Latin American activist economists set out to confront what they call the scandal of inequality on their continent with a model that places poor women at the center of the drive for social change. Guided by the idea that what the poor lack is access to financial services and information, they bring together governments, big banks, and women marginalized by poverty in Peru, Colombia, and Brazil. Their innovative programs spread financial literacy via digital education tools that reach 3 million women from across the region. Could this new, unorthodox model offer a disruption, a new approach for social transformation and the eradication of poverty? Yates, a Guggenheim Fellow and director of the award winning films When the Mountains Tremble and Granito, will discuss the process of making the film and its impact.

When: Mar 8, 2015 2 PM to Mar 8, 2015 4 PMin Great Barrington, Massachusetts (Sun, 08 Mar 2015 14 )

Sales Management for the 21st Century

Currie Management Consultants, Inc. has worked extensively with hundreds of dealers in our Currie Best Practices Groups to develop better sales processes. Much of that effort has been specifically on sales management and sales managerdevelopment. This seminar will address ineffective, sales rep patterns; sales rep performance reviews; and account prioritization questions across many industries such as agricultural equipment, construction equipment, materials handling, power generation, lawn and garden, and transport refrigeration.

Additionally, this workshop will cover subjects relating to how sales managers can better understand the talent they manage, how that talent is segmented and how it performs.

Critical behaviors of sales managers will be covered in great detail.

Additionally, you will develop specific strategies during the seminar that you will implement in order to create immediate financial gains
