Dining at The Old Inn on the Green is an extraordinary experience: fine wine, great food & the dining rooms are lit entirely by candlelight & there are fireplaces in each room. In the summer months, dinner is also served outside on the garden terrace under a graceful white canopy, overlooking a large colonial flower and herb garden.
The son of a scientist and a doctor, Jad Abumrad studied creative writing and music composition at Oberlin College. While working on staff at WNYC, Abumrad began tinkering with an idea that evolved into one of public radio’s most popular shows today – Radiolab. Radiolab podcasts are downloaded over 4 million times each month and the program is carried on 437 stations across the nation. Abumrad was honored as a 2011 MacArthur Fellow.
This lecture thread begins with a simple question: what does it mean to “innovate?” How does it feel to make something new in the world? (These are questions Radiolab host Jad Abumrad was frequently asked after being awarded a MacArthur fellowship in 2011). This lecture, on one level, is the personal story of how Jad invented a new aesthetic. On another, it is a clinic in the art of storytelling. On a third and more profound level, the lecture is the result of a three-year investigation into the science, philosophy and art of uncertainty, which all began with the two words that are the title of this talk. Gut Churn. What use do negative feelings have during the creative process? Do those feelings get in the way, or do they propel us forward?
“Jad Abumrad and Robert Krulwich [of Radiolab] have digested all the storytelling and production tricks of everyone in public radio before them, invented some slick moves of their own, and ended up creating the rarest thing you can create in any medium: a new aesthetic.” —Ira Glass

Invest in developing your leadership team and secure thefuture success of your dealership/distributorship!
Highlights of the Currie Leadership Development Program:
Attend four quarterly workshops during 2015
Participate in monthly coaching calls
Develop networks with participants from other industries
Gain Operational Knowledge around the Financial Model
Learn advanced leadership behavioral skills
The Currie Leadership Development Program
One of the themes that consistently arises at all of Currie Management Consultants, Inc. dealer/distributor group meetings is how to develop leaders. At times it is your identified successor(s) of your dealer/distributorships, or it might be your current managers that have leadership potential. Many times the answer to developing these individuals is to bring them to dealer or distributor group meetings. What can happen is they become lost, or worse, frustrated with this environment. They lack the fundamental business knowledge or confidence to take part in the process or are afraid to broach subject matters that may seem trivial to the principals in the room.
Currie looks at the development of a dealer/distributor leader on two levels. The first level is basic business knowledge. This knowledge is specific to your industry and to dealerships/distributorships which includes knowing the Currie Financial Model with all the details. Operational Best Practices are also introduced at each of the workshops.
The second level of development centers on the leadership behaviors that drive the execution of the Currie Financial Model. The leadership behaviors that are taught are the building blocks of great leadership. They are: mental agility, interpersonal finesse, change mastery, and goal orientation. The Currie process combines the knowledge of the Financial Model with leadership behaviors in an environment where they can safely begin to develop. The program also includes several in-depth assessments for each participant in order to create the self-awareness as the leadership skills emerge and grow.
Our response to your demand for developing leaders is a forum by which we educate and coach these leaders through a series of meetings (each quarter for a period of one year) and monthly coaching calls. We are happy to report that over 90 managers/leaders have completed the Currie Leadership Development Series.
The fee for the Leadership Development Program is $6,000 per participant. A $1,000 deposit is required for registration. Currie Management will then invoice your company for $1,250 per each of the four quarters of the program.
These fees include the four workshops, monthly coaching sessions, and any individual coaching that is necessary.
The first meeting is held at the offices of Currie Management Consultants, Inc. Subsequent meetings are scheduled in locations that are decided upon by the participants. Currie Management Consultants handles all meeting arrangements for the participants.
Expenses associated with the meetings will be shared and billed similar to that of our Best Practices groups (fixed costs based on membership and variable costs based on attendance.)

There are a number of common misunderstandings and controversies about electrostatic discharge (ESD) program management that can have significant impact on the implementation and maintenance of the ESD program. These misunderstandings or "myths" result in unnecessary expenditures and/or result in a compromise of the program integrity. These myths and controversies, such as latency are often cited by skeptics not wanting to adhere to certain standard ESD procedures. As a consequence, it is important to identify and dispel the myths as well as to understand the potential impact of latent failures.
Common myths and supporting success studies will be highlighted as well as a success study on latency. The myths and success studies presented here were chosen to provide real-world examples of how an ESD program can be strengthened by understanding the fallacy in each of the myths. This understanding will result in more reliable products that are also more cost competitive.
Although not a myth, latency is a significant reliability consideration that is surrounded with controversy. Some experts will argue that latency is virtually non-existent and others will claim that it is the dominant failure mode. Reality lies somewhere in between.

When people think of Boston, the first thing they think of is usually their famous baseball team, the Red Sox, or the delicious and refreshing Boston Cooler. However, Boston is also home to some of the best pub crawls on the continent. If you have never been on a pub crawl, let me fill you in. You can think of a pub crawl as a marathon, of sorts. You spend an entire evening making your way between different pubs, bars, and even some night clubs. At each stop, you drink as many drinks as you can handle, perhaps make some new friends, stop off in the bathroom, and maybe even order some food. Afterwards, you move on to the next stop and repeat the process all over again. If you want to get out and experience new things this Halloween, a pub crawl could be perfect for you! It's a stress-free night out with lots of other people in costume. You don't need to worry about setting up an itinerary, keeping track of your drunk friends, or being trapped at the same bar or house party all night, when you know that their are tons of things going on all night that could be way more fun. On a pub crawl, you get to experience a little bit of all of them. Get your tickets today! And then you can spend the rest of October worrying about your costume, instead of worrying about where you should go for your Halloween celebrations.
