We believe that the career paths that exist in the Massachusetts Life Science Industry are numerous, exciting, and rewarding and that it is imperative that students considering these careers be well informed regarding the areas that their education and training are relevant.

We focus on covering the various functional areas in the life sciences sector including, R&D, consulting, commercial, business development, marketing, clinical, regulatory, medical affairs, bioinformatics, systems biology, modeling, pharmacoeconomics, reimbursement, patient advocacy, market access, finance, legal, and operations. Most graduate students and post-docs are well prepared to take numerous directions in their careers, and it is our intent to provide a comprehensive understanding of the aptitudes and work environments that are associated with specific career paths, so that the individuals who attend these events can make more informed career decisions. We are also big believers in the power of connections and networking, so each seminar will have specific time set aside to meet the presenters and the attendees and to develop relationships that will be an asset to those in attendance.

You'll get real, usable ideas on having a better plan for your social media, right away.

8 Tips for Better Email Conversations

It would be so much easier if they would just pick up the phone and call you, wouldn't it? But these days that's not happening very much. Do you know why? Does it really matter why? You've always had to adapt to how your prospect's preferences, not the other way around. In this session Alan will walk you through the ins and outs of communicating with today's prospects.
Here's what you'll learn:

  • Why they won't call you
  • How to have a real conversation via email
  • How much you should write in an email
  • When and how to use attachments

The Price is Right - Tips for dealing with when they ask 'How Much?'

Whether it’s in person, on the phone, via email, or on your website, handling pricing questions is a delicate art. Asking “How Much…?” is a natural part of the buying process, so learning how to address it, no matter your service or product, regardless of price point, is critical to your business success. In this fast-paced presentation sales guru Alan Berg will help you navigate this subject with confidence. That confidence should lead to more appointments, and to more sales.
What you’ll learn:

  • How to handle common pricing questions and concerns in email
  • The best ways to deal with addressing price on your website
  • The difference between negotiating and discounting
  • Tips to make the client consider value over price


Evening Session: 7:00pm - 8:30pm - Presentation (also the NPVA meeting)

Can Your Business Survive Without Social Media?

Are you hearing that if you don’t dive into the deep end of the social media pool your business will wither and die? Did you leave your latest trade meeting or conference like a deer in headlights not knowing where to begin?

It seems that you can’t read your email or go to a conference without being bombarded with information about social media. But where do you start? Should you even bother? Are you feeling overwhelmed? Whether you’re a 20-something or 50-something, you can easily feel overwhelmed by the conflicting messages. As always, Alan is here to help!

What we’ll cover:

  • Do you need to have a social media strategy?
  • Can you attain your business goals without being on Facebook?
  • Is social media an all-or-nothing endeavor?
  • How you can have a presence on social media without it consuming too much of your time and resources?

Here's what a recent attendee says:

"Just wanted to take a moment to say thanks. Yours was the best seminar that I attended at Wedding MBA. I get bored listening to most people talk for more than 10 minutes, but you kept it interesting and me engaged."
- Lance Morris, Big Show Mobile Entertainment, Spokane, WA



"No Excuse Pricing" for both fabulous sessions! Bring some friends and save with discounted 2, 3 and 4-person tickets! Share the learning and the experience.

"Engaging, energetic, enlightening and encouraging! Listening to Alan speak at the recent Weddings Online conference was time well spent. He knows our business and what we are trying to achieve."
- Eamon Crosby, The Bentley Boys, Dublin, Ireland

"Best speaker ever! When Alan talks, people listen. He also breaks down his message to something his audience can walk away with and use immediately in their own business. Alan is professional, positive, inspiring, and knows how to relay his message to his audience while keeping their attention the entire time. After Alan speaks the crowd buzzes with enthusiasm about the topic."

Sonny Knight and the Lakers - Minneapolis Soul Invades Worcester

 Click to englarge image

Sonny Knight and the Lakers

On April 29, 2014, the debut album from Sonny Knight & The Lakers, I’m Still Here, will be released by Secret Stash Records on LP, CD, and digitally. In person, Sonny Knight defies his 66 years of age. When he talks, his low gravely voice betrays the roundness of his singing. His smile and gestures radiate youthful energy with the reassuring confidence of a captain or pilot; they bring a sense of ease rather than being brash. He is a natural performer, even on a cold Thursday night in Secret Stash’s basement recording studio. Standing in a rehearsal room, framed by old guitar amps, instruments, and blanket covered walls, Sonny stands up to the mic to lay down the vocal track for “I’m Still Here (Pt. 2).” Despite his drab surroundings, eyes closed, he performs for an invisible audience. His body moves in rhythm, arms jabbing like a boxer before a fight. As the horns hit, he jerks his head in time then begins delivering each line. His face physically expresses the emotion of every word and as he reaches the crescendo of the chorus, knees bent, head tilted toward the ceiling, his mouth buckles to unleash the exclamation, “I’M STILL HERE!”

In reference to “I’m Still Here,” Sonny relates, “That song is me giving my thoughts and ideas about what my life is about. People are trying to live too much in the future, or are stuck in the past. The idea is to focus on right now.” In part one of the song, he describes the worries and doubts he experienced upon returning from Vietnam. The world was a confusing place, and he discovered childhood friends had grown up and gotten in trouble. Its message is about not losing sight of yourself while getting through difficult times. Part two stresses how paramount it is to live in the present. Knight recounts, you “never know when life’s ride will come to an end. I’m still here. I know one thing’s for sure, can’t start it again. I’m still here.” For Sonny Knight, making the album I’m Still Here was like pressing the reset button on his music career. The synthesizers of the 1980s and the four on the floor disco flourishes of the 1970’s have been replaced by classic arrangements and production values commonplace when his career was just beginning.

He was born in Jackson, Mississippi in 1948, moved to St. Paul as a youngster, and took to music. Little Sonny Knight & The Cymbols recorded their debut 45 for New Teenage Records in 1965, when he was 17. Then music took a backseat to a three year call of duty in the army. A few more years in the Bay Area followed before Sonny returned to Minnesota in the mid-1970s and joined the band Haze. Like many other groups, opportunities dried up in the 1980s and Sonny found a full time job as a truck driver. Musical work came again in the 1990s when former Valdons vocalists Monroe Wright and Maurice Young extended an invitation to join their new group, The Bachelors. In 2012, The Valdons were featured in Secret Stash Records’ compilation Twin Cities Funk & Soul. The record spawned multiple concerts which reunited musicians and singers from the era to perform for new generations; it also revived The Valdons, for which Wright and Young tapped Knight as a new member. After six months of working together in soul revue shows, Sonny and Secret Stash’s Eric Foss formed the group Sonny Knight & The Lakers.

Burger Slam 2015

 

Burger Slam '15 will take place on Saturday, May 16, 2015 at 6:30pm. The Burger Slam is a friendly cook-off competition among five Boston restaurants: Aquitaitne, Gaslight, Grass Fed, The Haven, and Sycamore.  It is organized by parents at the JP Manning Elementary School, a Boston public school in Jamaica Plain, MA. What began as a school community event has grown into a community-wide event, attracting foodies in the area and support from generous sponsors. The primary goal of this event is to celebrate the restaurant community and to raise funds to support a strong curriculum for the kids and teachers who work so hard at this small school 

As we enter our 4th Annual Burger Slam competition, we've seen our event grow from a small venue, to our current location at Spontaneous Celebrations in the heart of Jamaica Plain. We've also seen our list of chefs and attendees grow each year. This growth has helped us to raise more funds to support an outdoor classroom, investment in the arts, and more field trips and technological resources for our students. 

The fundraiser is open to the public ages 21 and over who want to come and taste some of Boston's best burgers and vote for their favorite while raising money for the kids at the Manning School. We raise money through the ticket sales, the silent auction at the event, and for those who can't make it or would like to do a little extra, we invite anyone, anywhere, to support the JP Manning Elementary School by donating here

 

We invite you to learn more about our school, by visiting our website (link) and watching this brief video (link)

Feastible Films: The Grand Budapest Hotel

Plimoth Plantation has teamed up with Mirbeau Inn & Spa and Setting the Space for a truly unique fundraising event named Feastible Films.  From the moment guests arrive, thanks to the generosity and vision of Setting the Space designers, the Hornblower Visitor Center will be transformed completely for the evening. The award-winning Mirbeau Inn & Spa will bring a distinct flair to the event. This will be a truly immersive experience!

The Grand Budapest Hotel has been selected as the evening’s “feastible” film. The Oscar-winning film from legendary director Wes Anderson centers around a European resort presided over by its concierge Gustave H. Zero, a junior lobby boy who becomes Gustave’s friend and protégé. The film’s whimsy, charm and artisanal magic all serve as inspiration for this multi-sensory journey that 200 lucky ticket holders will be part of.

Feastible Films will kick off with a complimentary champagne reception in a specially-created “hotel” lobby, with hors d’oeuvres and live music to set the mood of the evening. An open bar will offer signature cocktails inspired by the films of Wes Anderson. As guests arrive to the reception they will be given their own “room keys” that unlock a limited number of gilded boxes hidden throughout the event that contain a variety of wonderful prizes, including a stay at Mirbeau Inn & Spa! 

Prior to the start of the film, each guest will receive a tray with a tasting menu of numbered boxes—thoughtfully curated to enhance the viewers’ film experience through aroma, texture and flavor. Guests will be prompted during the film to open boxes on trays and to "savor" particular scenes. The menu for the mystery trays will be designed and prepared in collaboration with Mirbeau’s Chef Stephen Coe and Plimoth Plantation’s Chef Kenny Randall. The chefs’ culinary craft and their expertise in the fine art of taste will undoubtedly keep pace with film’s clever plot twists. 

The ticket price for this premiere event is $125.00 a person. All proceeds will benefit Plimoth Plantation’s Annual Fund. For more information, please call Becky Wright at (508)746-1622 Ext 8226, and you can purchase your tickets here through Eventbrite. 

Special thanks to our event sponsors, Mirbeau Inn and Spa and Setting the Space, and our media partner, Magic 106.7.

Bicycle Maintenance I: MAY

Description:

Learn how to maintain your bicycle! The four classes in this course will cover the following topics: changing a flat tire, introduction to drive systems and rear derailleurs, brake systems overhaul, and introduction to bearings systems and front hub overhaul. Students will be performing the maintenance themselves, on their own bicycles, after a short instruction and demonstration. This is a basic course, and some bicycle types may be outside of the scope of the course. However, the course does reach a level of detail at which students who are intending to expand their knowledge of bicycles find it helpful to do some light note-taking during lecture time.

Class Goals:

Students will come out of this course with the ability to tend to the most common maintenance requirements of their bicycle.

Prerequisites:

Students must be at least 18 years of age -- otherwise, all you need is the desire to learn!

Materials Provided:

All relevant tools and equipment will be provided, as well as lubricants and rags etc.

What to Bring:

Your bike, replacement parts if necessary (check with instructor), and clothes you don't mind getting black bike grease on.

Instructor Biography:

 

“Seven” as she’s commonly known, has learned her bicycle maintenance skills through a combination of Broadway Bicycle School training, and spending inordinate amounts of time around SCUL headquarters (a positive bicycle chopper gang). Seven maintains a small fleet of “normal” bicycles, has built and maintained her own modified bicycles, and she likes to read bicycle repair manuals for kicks. Seven enjoys maintenance best when her SCUL comrades get together and ask her two or three “how do I…” questions at once. She’s also keen on hot yoga, meditation, making electronics go, and treasures playtime with friends.

 

 

Event Time:

Session 1: Wednesday, May 6, 7PM - 9PM

Session 2: Wednesday, May 13, 7PM - 9PM

Session 3: Wednesday, May 20, 7PM - 9PM

Session 4: Wednesday, May 27, 7PM - 9PM

 

REFUNDS: We offer full refunds for any class cancellations more than one week in advance of the class start date. After that point refunds are contingent upon the Asylum being able to fill the seat. No refunds whatsoever are offered for same-day cancellations. To request a refund for a class, please fill out this form.

CANCELLATIONS: Your class may be cancelled if too few people register. A decision will be made a few days before the class is scheduled to run, and you will be notified of the cancellation and your registration refunded in full.
