Creation of Abundance as Daily Reality

with Charles Biderman

September 1, 6:00 pm

Charles Biderman - photoAbundance grants us freedom, security and the energy. The on-going question remains: How to create abundance as a daily reality when worries, anxieties and concerns from the past and present intrude.

Charles Biderman has developed Abundance as a Daily Reality, a practice based on ontology, the science of being present in the areas of life that are important to us. Charles shows us how to be fully and consciously engaged to create the abundance we seek.

As part of this process, we will examine any and/or all unwanted practices based upon self beliefs that we have created. We will learn how to master our past conditioning and adopt practices that lead us to reaching our abundance goals.

Since 2009 Charles has created and led a Money & Success seminar for Landmark Worldwide to some 700 people. In addition, Charles uses this methodology to transform the lives of former foster youth through a special program, Biderman’s Practices of Success, most recently presented at Los Angeles City College.

Charles is the Chief Executive Officer of Trim Tabs Asset Management, portfolio manager of TrimTabs Float Shrink Exchange Traded Fund (TTFS-NYSE) and TrimTabs International Free Cash Flow ETF (FCFI- NYSE).

We look forward to seeing you at the Yale Club.

Digital Media ROI Blueprint for Success: What You Need to Know

with 
Gerard Boucher

Tuesday, August 4, 2015
6:00 pm
Yale Club, Room TBA

Gerard Boucher - photoEveryone knows that digital media is something they – and their organization – need to embrace. References to today’s digital world are all around us and there is a sense of urgency to adopt digital marketing techniques in your business or be left behind.

The vital questions about the use of digital media are:

  • For whom and for what purposes is it the optimal communications choice
  • How and when should it be used
  • What are the best ROI metrics by which it can be measured

It’s clear that digital media plays a leading role in today’s marketing for organizations small and large alike. However, is digital media the right fit for everyone? Does social media produce sales? Do small businesses need to be on Facebook? These questions must be discussed to unlock the true benefits of digital media.

The right balance between sales and thought leadership is hard to strike, but when it’s struck the returns can be large and lasting. When you lay the right digital media foundation in your organization, ROI is clear, present, and scalable for years to come. In this talk, you will learn the specific tools needed to unleash hidden ROI in digital media and fuel your organization’s short and long-term goals.

Gerard Boucher, Founder and CEO of Boucher + Co., launched his first website when he was just 8 years old. Since then, he operated a leading entertainment website for nearly a decade, and learned the secrets to building a successful brand and customer loyalty. Under his leadership, Gerard has implemented successful digital media campaigns for over 50 companies across many industries, and established Boucher + Co. as a leading marketing agency in the New York market.

How 3D Printing Will Rock Your World

with John Hornick

July 7, 6:00 pm, Yale Club

JohnHornick Photo3D printers are the most powerful machines humans have ever invented because they can make finished products, with all their parts, fully assembled.

Driven by a digital blueprint of the finished product, they do so by building up layer upon layer of plastic, metal, or other materials, which are fused with heat, lasers, electron beams, chemicals, ultrasound, or glue.

John Hornick, a prominent IP lawyer, explains where this disruptive technology stands today and where it is going, and how everything will change when you can make anything. Highlights include:

• the Disruption Checklist, which shows how business and personal life will change
• the effects of 3D printing on the ability to make almost anything without anyone knowing about it or being able to control it
• how the human drive to make things will help drive adoption of this technology
• how 3D printing will lead to the merger of science and nature in product design
• how and why 3D printing could replace mass production with mass customization
• how 3D printing may lead to new kinds of crime

John Hornick has been a counselor and litigator in the Washington, D.C. office of the Finnegan IP law firm for over 30 years. John advises clients about how 3D printing may affect their businesses and frequently speaks and writes on 3D printing. He was the only IP attorney selected by the U.S. Comptroller General Forum on Additive Manufacturing.

Future Focus: How Successful Companies Stay Relevant by Continual Innovation

with Jeff Loehr

June 2, 6:00 pm, Yale Club

Jeff Loehr PicBusiness success and failure depend on decisions leaders make; they are not a result of changes in the market. However, the market is changing more quickly than most people realize so making these decisions requires that leadership find ways to overcome their biases, focus on the future and continuously reinvent to keep up.

Logically managers and leaders may know this but still struggle to manage the change. The reason for this, based on our observations working with clients around the world, is that as people we become stuck in our mental models of past success. To respond to changing market conditions managers, leaders and founders work harder at doing what they did before. Eventually, when this doesn’t work they look for silver bullet solutions that could come from innovating revolutionary products or even restructuring, but these can make the problem worse.

Future focused companies avoid this crisis by thinking about what the future could look like and preparing for it. They continuously reinvent and evolve rather than look for silver bullet solutions. In our practice we look for and build three key aspects to future focused companies: flexibility in the development and execution of their strategy, foresight to break mental models and discover new opportunities and focus to both build the core and also develop new options in the periphery.

Jeff will talk about the mental model challenge and the key aspects of a future focused company.

Jeff Loehr is a partner at Stratalis Consulting. He has experience working with teams of all sizes and at all stages of company development from developing a strategy for tech startups creating an innovation program for the world’s deepest mine. He works with teams and companies to help them break out of their mental models, explore new options and develop successful businesses.

We look forward to seeing you at the Yale Club.  Please check with the front desk on the exact meeting location when you arrive.

The Neuroscience of Business Relationships

with Nora Simpson

Tuesday, May 5, 6:00 pm

Nora Simpson Headshot (1)Building professional relationships is a critical part of business success. Without relationships based in trust and authentic connection, attempts to create value and service will suffer. When trust and authentic connection are present between clients, vendors, and colleagues, value, productivity and collaboration can reach remarkably successful levels.

Most people can agree on some level that strong professional relationships are important. But the specifics of how to transform difficult relationships into healthy ones, and how to deepen the quality of already good relationships can feel elusive.

The science of the brain can tell us EXACTLY why someone is opening up or closing off quickly to our attempts to connect in a business context. When we “click” with someone in business, it feels easy and fun. But when others reject us, it can feel frustrating and confusing.  In this talk, you will learn concrete tools you can use RIGHT AWAY to create the right “click” with almost everyone as you build deep, authentic, high-integrity connections across your business life.

Nora Simpson, CEO of Simpson Strategic Solutions, is widely recognized as a business pioneer and the creator of the field of Experiential Neuroscience. Nora has successfully implemented her groundbreaking neuroscience-based concrete business tools with more than 100 companies in 40+ industries and over 10,000 individuals to create radical breakthroughs in revenue, profit, productivity and fulfillment.
