About Bourne
map
The Town of Bourne also known as the gateway to Cape Cod since the Cape Cod Canal splits the town through the middle and the Bourne Bridge is way over the canal to the Cape.

The town was founded in 1884 and is located in Barnstable County. Bourne is the first town on Cape Cod that has oceanfront on both the north and east sides and provides many recreational activities including golf courses and water parks.

The annual Bourne Scallop Festival is held during the month of September and the celebration attracts visitors from across the nation. Other attractions include the Bourne Scenic Park and the National Marine Life Center.

Yiannis Konstantinou, an internationally recognized teacher and researcher of Greek Macedonian Dances, comes to Boston to join the Sons & Daughters of Alexander the Great Greek Dance Troupe to share their passion in keeping the traditions of Greek Macedonian music and dance alive. 

Yiannis is the son of Simos Konstantinou, a renowned dancer from Alona, Greece who instilled in Yiannis the love for Macedonian dances from such an early age. Since childhood Yiannis danced throughout the village of Florina, Northwest Greece, alongside his family and friends. Still to this day you can see the experience and commitment to preserving and sharing of traditions of Greek Macedonia Dances. Throughout the years and Yiannis’ travels throughout the regions of Macedonia, he has also been privileged to learn the traditions of other ethnic groups that settled in the area, such as Pontic, Sarakastan, Vlachs and more.

Integrated STEM Symposium

Mark your calendars for the 1st annual Integrated STEM Symposium at Framingham State University, open to all STEM Certificate Program alumni. In conjunction with the 175th anniversary of the university which commemorates the transformation of public higher education, the symposium celebrates these educators as pioneers in integrated STEM education through a series of workshops, speakers, and interactive sessions. James Heppelmann, CEO of PTC Inc., will provide the interactive keynote address and discuss the relationship between future trends in industry and education. Breakout sessions will cover a variety of topics and resources to invite collaboration, encourage innovative thinking, and support educator efforts in pioneering the future of education.

 

Keynote Speaker: James Heppelman, CEO, PTC Inc. – The Internet of Things: Future Trends in Industry & Education. 

The number of things connected to the Internet now exceeds the total number of humans on the planet, and we’re accelerating to as many as 50 billion connected devices by the end of the decade. As products have evolved, their capabilities have multiplied, creating new forms of value and even doing things well beyond their primary function. This transformation is shifting the sources of value and differentiation to software, the cloud, and service, and spawning entirely new business models. For educators, the implications are immeasurable as the next generation of students is prepared to  not only operate in this new world, but to be responsible for innovating and creating new solutions, products, and services within it.

Goldfish
This event is 18 and over
Goldfish


The secret is officially out. An electronic duo from the Southern-most tip of Africa have gone from one of Dance Music’s best kept secrets to an act tipped by industry tastemakers as the band to watch this year.

Their genre-defying mix of live instruments, House beats and searing live performances has seen Goldfish go from impromtu jams at a tiny beach club in Cape Town to headlining Amsterdam’s Olympic Stadium, cracking a top 10 on the US iTunes Dance chart, a residency at Pacha Ibiza with David Guetta and DJ’s like Fedde le Grand knocking at their door to do remix their tracks. It’s almost hard to believe that not very long ago they were just Dom and Dave, two music students who lived a relatively chilled life of surfing and playing music in their home town Cape Town.

All that really did change when they decided to record an album. Not having a record deal or much money, they simply locked themselves in a bedroom...with a double bass, a saxophone and a couple of synths, recording their debut Caught In The Loop on their own. A charming dance record that received massive support from the international dance music scene, desperate for something fresh and new. Pete Tong even called it his "Ibiza Poolside Album of the Summer".

The two guys quickly found themselves maintaining gruelling international tour schedule that saw them play sold-out shows from Amsterdam to Miami, from the Sydney Opera House to Sao Paulo, in-between still finding time to mix the covermount CD for DJ mag International, garnering a record-breaking 8 SAMA nominations, numerous number ones radio at home, as well as performances at Glastonbury, Sensation White, Ultra Festival Miami, 46664 and Get Loaded in the Park amongst others.

They even got their hands on a residency to die for; Friday night at Ibiza super-club Pacha. Here they developed their sound further and presented it on their second album Perceptions of Pacha. As no other album, Perceptions Of Pacha captures the carefree vibe of the magical island of Ibiza, with their track "Fort Knox" cracking the Top 10 on the US iTunes Dance Charts. Following that up with the SAMA award-winning album Get Busy Living featuring the smash Youtube hit video "We Come Together" that garnered millions of online views for it’s hilarious and ground breaking animation work that has become a Goldfish trademark.

With props coming from everyone from Dr Dre, Sebastian Ingrosso, Pete Tong, Sander Kleinenberg, Fedde Le Grand and Faithless, watch this space. The Re-invention of the DJ has arrived.

Storytelling for Leaders - Boston

Influence without relying on authority.

Build fast rapport.

Change minds and inspire action.

Storytelling for Leaders will teach you the techniques you need to better influence, engage and inspire others – just as hundreds of leaders already have, from Melbourne to New York, London to Singapore.

Organizations are changing quickly. Structures are flatter and reporting lines more complex. Staff and customers are spread around the world. And everyone is deafened by the ‘noise’ of information inundation. Yet the modern leader still needs to be able to influence and persuade in this constantly fluid environment.

The sharing of stories orally is a powerful way of cutting through. When we tell stories, people ‘get’ what we are saying – and they remember it. This is the case whether we are communicating informally (which is what we do most of the time) or in a more formal environment such as a presentation. Discover the types of problems business storytelling can solve.

“Other presentations were dry and heavy, but the Yammer presentations really stood out because we were telling stories versus merely sharing data.” A Storytelling for Leaders participant describes the way storytelling changed her presentations. Click here to hear more.

More than just storytelling

Storytelling for Leaders will teach you a systematic method for becoming a better, more confident storyteller. However, the program goes further. You will also learn how to use the magic of stories to get more from others:

  • Story-triggering involves a leader doing something remarkable enough that it inspires people in the organization to recount what happened. We show you how you can do this successfully.
  • Story-listening is the art of getting others to share stories. You’ll learn how to elicit stories from others, building stronger connections and gaining a better understanding of what’s really happening.


More than a workshop

Storytelling for Leaders is not a one-off workshop but a complete six-month program. It includes:

  • A full one-day workshop. The workshop is highly interactive as we strongly believe in the power of practical activities to foster learning. Throughout the day you will engage in hands-on activities designed to build your storytelling skills and confidence. See the workshop in action here.
  • Our unique Deliberate Practice Program (DPP). This workplace-based program includes six modules, spread over six months, which will embed and enhance what was learned in the workshop. Most of the learning you do will occur during in the workplace, during the DPP, rather than in the workshop.

The Deliberate Practice Program includes online support, with the opportunity to ask questions and share your experiences at any time.

“The workshop covered a lot of territory in a way that combined analytical rigor with a clear and informal delivery. I recommend it without reservation.”

Who should attend?

Storytelling for Leaders is beneficial to anyone whose role requires them to influence, engage and inspire others. Previous participants have included executive leaders, mid-level managers, communications and human resources practitioners, project managers, and salespeople.

Worcester2025 Education Forum

Please join us for this special breakfast forum were we will explore the long term future of our region's education industry and what challenges, changes and opportunities lay ahead.

Central Massachusetts is home to a large number of colleges and universities, a cultural and economic resource that truly sets our region apart as one of its key economic drivers. Yet education, like many industries, is undergoing a significant transformation driven by new technologies, shifting demographics and pricing pressure on the cost of higher education. All those factors taken together will present a new series of challenges and opportunities, and mean some real changes in how our colleges and universities deliver knowledge and value to their students/customers.

In this special session we’ll bring together a group of expert panelists and take a look into the crystal ball of higher education in 2025.

  • How can our institutions of higher education successfully navigate the changes that lie ahead?
  • How will innovations in technology drive changes in the classroom and how students learn?
  • What are the greatest challenges, and what opportunities for growth and innovation lay ahead for the schools in our region?

Solarize Framingham: Solar Workshop at John Harvard's

Please join Next Step Living for their Solarize Framingham Workshop (with complimentary appetizers and soft drinks) on September 10th at 6:00 p.m. at John Harvard's, 1 Worcester Road, Framingham MA 01701. Please RSVP at GoodEner.gy/Framingham or call 866-867-8729.

Last year, Next Step Living conducted energy efficiency outreach throughout Framingham, which resulted in about 1,000 homeowners getting home energy assessments. Almost half of those homeowners took additional steps to improve their homes’ energy efficiency and lower their utility bills by weatherizing their homes or installing a high-efficiency heating and cooling system called a ductless mini split. There are 2,500 Framingham homes with the opportunity to have roof top solar, your home could be one of them!

As part of the Solarize Framingham program, Next Step Living will be introducing homeowners to the benefits of solar power systems, which include:

• Savings of up to 25 percent. Relying on solar power for electricity makes you less susceptible to electricity rate increases.

• Increased resale value of your home. Solar power systems are an asset to a home if or when you decide to sell. For every $1,000 annual reduction in your utility costs, the value of the home increases by an estimated $20,000.

• Long lasting. Panels can last between 25 and 35 years, and there is no maintenance needed.

 Framingham residents who go solar before September 31, 2014 will take part in a tiered pricing structure that rewards residents by reducing the price as more Framingham residents sign up for solar through this program.

Joe Perry Book Signing 'Rocks: My Life In and Out of Aerosmith'
In the tradition of the mega-bestseller 'Life' by Keith Richards, Aerosmith’s Joe Perry opens up for the first time about the wild, inside story of his life in the legendary band he co-founded in 1970—which is still going strong today. In Rocks, Joe Perry exposes his unrepentant, unbridled life as the lead guitarist of Aerosmith. He delves deep into his volatile, profound, and enduring relationship with singer Steve Tyler and reveals the real people behind the larger-than-life rock-gods on stage. The nearly five-decade saga of Aerosmith is epic, at once a study in brotherhood and solitude that plays out on the killing fields of rock and roll. Author and DJ Carter Alan will interview Mr. Perry and will also sign copies of his own recent book, 'Radio Free Boston: The Rise and Fall of WBCN', Steven Tyler, fwd. Tickets: $35 each and include one copy of 'Rocks'. On sale at brooklinebooksmith.com/tickets. Joe Perry will only sign copies of Rocks purchased at Brookline Booksmith.

"49 Social has taken over the beautiful, three-story space. The décor retains a masculine-meets-feminine appeal with exposed brick and wrought iron detailing blended with soft lighting and a gentle color palate." Time Out Boston

“Social Strategy: How We Profit From Social Media”

Hosted by swissnex Boston, the Consulate of Switzerland*

6:30 to 7:00 p.m.  Drinks, hors d’oeuvres and informal networking

7:00 p.m. Welcome by IMD New England Alumni President, Janet Gilmartin followed by a moment of silence in remembrance of the anniversary of 9/11

7:05 to 8:00 p.m.  Presentation by Professor Piskorski followed by Q&A
8:00 to 9:00 p.m.  Informal networking and book signing by Professor Piskorski**

 

Please join us in welcoming IMD Professor of Strategy and Innovation,Mikolaj Jan Piskorski,*** one of the world’s leading experts on social media, to Boston on Thursday evening, September 11th, when we will be treated to a dynamic presentation entitled “Social Strategy: How We Profit from Social Media”.  Social Media is one of today’s hottest topics, and it affects the personal and professional lives of people of all ages, as well as the strategies of many companies. This event, which includes appetizers, Swiss wine, a book signing, and a chance for informal networking, is hosted by Dr. Felix Moesner, Swiss Consul and CEO of swissnex Boston.

 

Almost no one had heard of social media a decade ago, but websites such as Facebook, Twitter, and LinkedIn now have more than one billion users and account for nearly twenty-five percent of Internet use. Almost overnight, social media seems indispensable to our lives -- from friendship and dating to news and business.

What makes social media so different from traditional media? According to Piskorski, answering that question is the key to making social media work for any business. In A Social Strategy, he provides the most convincing answer yet  -  one backed by original research, data, and case studies. Groundbreaking and important, A Social Strategy provides not only a story- and data-driven explanation for the explosion of social media, but also an invaluable, concrete road map for any company that wants to tap the marketing potential of this remarkable phenomenon.

Drawing on his analysis of proprietary data from social media sites, Piskorski argues the secret of successful sites is that they allow people to fulfill social needs that either can't be met offline or can be met only at much greater cost. This insight provides the key to how companies can leverage social platforms to create a sustainable competitive advantage. Companies need to help people interact with each other, before they will promote products to their friends or help companies in other ways. Done right, a company's social media should benefit both customers and the firm. Piskorski calls this "a social strategy," and he describes how companies such as American Express and Nike have successfully incorporated one into their business.

Christmas Throwdown at CrossFit Synergistics

The Christmas Throwdown started with humble intentions, we wanted to bring the community together and have a killer competition to bring in the holidays. The first Christmas Throwdown was held in December 2011. The event was designed for all athletes including men and women RX and scaled divisions. Shortly after the event was announced the 1st Annual Christmas Throwdown was completely sold out! Everyone who participated in this event left the competition excited and in the holiday spirit ready for the announcement of our 2nd Annual Christmas Throwdown.

In our second year the Christmas Throwdown was an even bigger success! We had over 135+ athletes compete traveling from the surrounding states to be apart of this event. This year was extra special for us because portions of the proceeds were being donated to help buy toys for kids in need. North Haven CrossFit decided that the Toys for Tots foundation was a perfect foundation to promote because it was directly in line with the holiday spirit.

At the conclusion of the 2nd Annual Christmas Throwdown, email after email poured in talking about how well run the event was and how great it would be to spread this event to surrounding boxes. With the continuous positive feedback received we decided that we wanted to allow for other boxes to experience our Christmas Throwdown and help give back to the community.

This brings us to the creation of our national version of the Christmas Throwdown. CrossFitters across the country can now participate together in the Christmas Throwdown Series to see who is the fittest athlete. Not only will this be a killer competition with national results, this event will also bring smiles to countless children during the holidays when they receive a new toy on Christmas!

We feel with great success comes great responsibility. Please join us this year in and have your box participate in the 2014 Christmas Throwdown Series!

 

We are so proud to be a part of a nation united by fitness
