About Burlington
map
Burlington Massachusetts was formed in 1799 and most of its history was based on the agricultural use of the land selling produce to Boston. It also supported itself with small shoe making shops. Burlington missed out on the early railroad expansion thereby limiting its early development so it continued to cure hams and produce milk and fruit and vegetables.

As soon as Route 128 was built this picture changed drastically causing an enormous expansion. Between 1955 and 1965 Burlington was the fastest growing town in the state on Massachusetts. Its population more than tripled as commercial retail and residential development exploded and created the town's current character. Burlington is nestled among Routes 128, Route 3 and 3A as well as Route 62, which makes it easily accessible to Boston and all points north and south.

Burlington is home to many hi-tech companies and industries and is loaded with opportunity for the professional business person. Add to that its flourishing retail sales market and you have a town oozing with positive cash flow. The next time your visiting the Burlington Mall, take a ride along Cambridge Street and discover all of the small businesses and restaurants that the town has to offer.

Achieving Nonlinear Growth in Academia: Lessons for Your Company

"Achieving Nonlinear Growth in Academia: Lessons for your Company”

Linear growth defines the present as the baseline and seeks to grow as a percentage of the present, e.g. We will grow 5 percent gross revenue.  Nonlinear growth, however, defines the future as the baseline and seeks to make a radical shift from the past.  

Are you managing for linear growth or nonlinear growth?

In this series we will learn from masters of nonlinear growth.  Join us in an interactive workshop for CEOs and Business Owners interested in alternative and different ways to grow. We promise a nonlinear experience!

This is the first of a series on how CEOs can achieve nonlinear growth in 2015. Don’t miss out!Keynote Speaker: Dr. Christopher E. Hopey, President, Merrimack College

Dr. Christopher E. Hopey has been president of Merrimack College for four years. Dr. Hopey directed a range of investments and initiatives that have advanced Merrimack’s position as a highly ranked, internationally respected, selective comprehensive Catholic college.

Dr. Hopey engaged the College community in a collaborative strategic planning process to help Merrimack develop a clear vision for the future. The outcome was Merrimack’s strategic plan called, “The Agenda for Distinction,” which focuses on five strategic goals that altered the trajectory of the College by transforming it from an institution of promise to one of achievement.

Join us for a lively discussion in how this Academic Entrepreneur achieved the largest freshman class enrollment in its history this fall.

THURSDAY | 5 MARCH  | 2015Discussion Leaders:

Dr. Larry Stybel, Co-Founder, Stybel, Peabody & Associates, Inc.

Rudi Scheiber-Kurtz, CEO, Next Stage Solutions, Inc.

Lessons from Harvard:  Using Gamification to Juice Your User Engagement with Dr. B. Price Kerfoot


About Dr. Kerfoot; Associate Professor, Harvard Medical School  

Dr. Kerfoot has conducted groundbreaking research at Harvard Medical School into increasing learner engagement using game mechanics such as individual and team competition, scoring and leaderboards.  His research shows that, when applied correctly, game-based learning can significantly increase engagement and learning.  Hear the latest peer-reviewed research as well as practical methods used at Harvard Medical School and life sciences companies that you can implement to drive learner engagement and knowledge retention.


Learning Objectives

How do you get busy sales people to take training in the field?

You can give everyone an iPad but if the learning is not engaging and enjoyable, they will give up (or never start).  Understand the latest Harvard and other peer-reviewed research on gamification and learner engagement.

How can we apply it?

Learn how to develop practical, engaging and fun learning strategies based on proven behavioral science that leverages game-like elements to boost engagement.
