Got Trust? A CFO RoundTable and Vistage International Leadership Series Event Tuesday, May 13, 2014, 7:30 - 9:30 a.m. The offices of Robert Half International, 125 High Street, Boston, MA
Would you say that the following statements describe your organization…
Information is shared openly
Mistakes are tolerated and encouraged as a way of learning
The culture is innovative and creative
There is an abundance of ‘water cooler’ talk
There are numerous ‘meetings after meetings’
The only way to get ahead is to withhold or hoard information
Vistage International Senior Vice President, Phillip C. Thomas, a successful 5 time public and private company CEO, will lead an interactive discussion around a fresh, innovative approach to leadership performance developed from the pragmatic perspective of an experienced CEO. Led by a successful senior executive, not a training theorist, we will discuss such key questions as
Who Do You Trust – And Why?
Why Other People Trust You – And Why They Don’t.
Organizational Trust Verses Personal Trust.
The Practical Economics of High and Low Trust Organizations.
We will also discuss 13 everyday behaviors common to high trust leaders and organizations around the world, behaviors that will change everything in the organization that masters them beginning, ideally, with the executive team.
This discussion will be aided by examples that demonstrate how trust affects everything in the five spheres of our existence - personal lives, business lives, the place we work, the marketplace, and society at large.
Drawing from our collaborative relationship with the Covey Leadership Center and The Speed of Trust organization led by New York Times best-selling author, Stephen M. R. Covey, this discussion is one you will not want to miss – and while you’re at it, bring a friend!
This session is the second in a 3-part Leadership Series, co-produced by Vistage International and The CFO RoundTable. Other sessions will be announced shortly.
Registration is $20, and includes breakfast. CFO and Controllers RoundTable members and friends and Vistage members are welcome to attend.
To register for this event, please complete the form above and click submit when complete. For questions or more information, contact Becky Blackler, Executive Director, The CFO RoundTable, at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Please join the Black of Alumni of Dartmouth Association
First Ever BADA on the Beach
weekend mini-reunion at
The Inkwell Beach 79 Seaview Avenue, Oak Bluffs, Martha's Vineyard (opposite Pequot Avenue)
No cost to attend
Please join the Black Alumni of Dartmouth Assocation for a weekend mini-reunion to complement our BADA on the Vineyard Midweek Social. Whether visiting for the weekend or if you've been on the island all week, this is a great opportunity to relax on one of the most iconic beaches on Martha's Vineyard. If this is a day trip, there will be plenty of time for sightseeing and activities.
Since this is our first time producing an event of this type, we've made it really simple. In other words, this event is BYOE (bring your own everything). We'll secure a spot on the beach we're Dartmouth alums can congregate. Your job is to get there, meet us and bring what you consume. We recommend bringing a blanket, a fashionable bathing suit, sunscreen or lotion, a hat, sun glasses and a smile. The beach is walking distance from the Oak Bluffs ferry. On the way, you can pick up a boxed meal from one of a number of venues on Circuit Avenue, the "main strip" in Oak Bluffs. We'll send a list of eligible venues as the date approaches.
Alcoholic beverages are highly discouraged on the beach but a rule is only as strong as its enforcement. Should you choose to ignore our warnings, please bring an extra cup to share with a neighbor or two. We won't tell nobody! This event is open to all alumni of Dartmouth College as well as their family and friends. If you should have any questions, please feel free to contact Hermann Mazard D'87.
If you're not familiar, Martha's Vineyard is not a farm or a distillery, it's an island. Getting there is not exactly straightforward but it's worth the hassle. The following are an approximation of your travel options:
By Plane. If you choose to fly in from Boston (BOS), New York (LGA or JFK) or Washington (DCA), you can get direct flights to Martha's Vineyard Airport (MVY) on Cape Air, US Air or JetBlue for around $350 per person round trip. If you own your own plane or participate in a fractional ownership program (such as NetJets), instruct your flight crew to proceed to Katama Airfield in Edgartown, Massachusetts.
By Bus. Common carrier transportation is a realistic day trip option if you're coming from Boston, Massachusetts or Providence, Rhode Island. Your best bet is to take the Peter Plan bus that leaves Boston South Station at 10am (or Providence Bus Station at 9:45am) and arrives in Woods Hole at 11:45am, in time to catch the 12:00 Noon ferry to Oak Bluffs. Other options are also possible so don't fret. But you'll have to schedule them on your own.
Cost of Peter Pan Bus from Boston is $24.00 per person, each way
Cost of Peter Pan Bus from Providence is $32.00 per person, each way
Cost to take the ferry is $8.00 per person, each way
By Car. If you're coming in from New Jersey, New York or Connecticut, drive to the Palmer Avenue Parking Lot in Woods Hole, Massachusetts and take a free shuttle to the ferry. Don't worry if the next ferry lands in Oak Bluffs or Vineyard Haven, just get on the next ferry. Getting from Vineyard Haven to Oak Bluffs is a ten (10) minute bus ride and buses run every thirty (30) minutes.
Cost to take the ferry is $8.00 per person, each way
Cost to park your car at Palmer Avenue Parking Lot is $13.00 per day
If needed, the MV Transit bus to Oak Bluffs costs $7.00 per person
Short Term Accommodations
Martha's Vineyard is a haven for vacation renters but there are a few short term hotel options available if you book with sufficient advance notice. You should also consider private home rentals on AirBnB, HomeAway or a similar service.
If you're looking for a more natural, or ultra affordable, experience, consider renting a cabin at the Martha's Vineyard Campgrounds. The cabin rate for up to four (4) people starts at $140.00. Campfires are permitted. They offer clean bathrooms and a safe environment. For an ultra affordable experience, consider pitching a tent and sleeping under the stars. Camping rates for two (2) people start at $54.00 per night. Sorry, no pets.

At first, Abasi declined on the grounds that to do so would be "egotistical," but he eventually relented and founded a new entity named Animals as Leaders (inspired by Daniel Quinn's 1992 anthropocentric novel Ishmael) to function as this solo project. An eponymous debut album followed in April of 2009 and saw Abasi handling all guitar and bass tracks, while drums and other synthesized sound effects were programmed by engineer Misha Mansoor." - Eduardo Rivadavia, AllMusicGuide

Read our inspiration:
As a response to the current state of race relations in the U.S., we are calling for people to come together and create "The Survival Guide for Black Bodies". This will be a compilation of rules and regulations for surviving in the U.S. as the owner of a black body. The rules of race in America are absurd and important to make visible. A sample rule for a Black Body is: "Don't be loud in public or play loud music."
We will be creating a book in a day through a multimedia production involving creatives, concerned citizens, youth, and more collaborating to produce this guide. This satirical guide is meant to comment on the violence against black people being perpetuated and raise our consciousness about the drastic nature of racial relations in the United States. Hence, sparking a movement to change the perceptions of black bodies.

Following his debut appearance on Get Darker TV in March 2011, Compa released his inaugural 12" single with one of Dubstep's foundation imprints Boka Records (Tracks 'Sentence' and 'Beginning'), and his infamous bootleg of Mavado’s ‘Dem A Talk’ on his own vinyl-only WX/WL imprint, which sold out worldwide within one week of its release, and at the tender age of just 21, he's been newly signed to Mala's Deep Medi label, perhaps the most revered seal of approval in true-skool Dubstep circles. With a sound that is perpetually nostalgic, yet equally refreshing, and heavy enough to shock the toughest of sound systems, Compa’s music displays a binary relationship between ‘Foundation Sound’ homage and Forward-Motion thought. Spacious textures, heavily built sub-frequencies and intricate execution of minimalism are but a few significant ways in which his music can be described. The Compa sound has received acclaim from across the board with key influences like BBC 6 Music's Gilles Peterson & Nerm showing praise, as well as J:Kenzo and B-Traits on BBC Radio 1 and 1Xtra, not forgetting Jay 5ive and N-Type amongst others on the prestigious Rinse Fm. Tracks have even found their way into the record bags of scene pioneers Mala (Deep Medi, DMZ), Chase & Status (Ram, Mercury, Renegade Hardware) and US Dubstep Ambassador, Joe Nice (Dub War, Reconstrvct). Whilst operating his own white label series, WX/WL, you can still catch Compa live on Sub FM every other Monday 12pm- 2pm GMT. In addition to performances in The Netherlands, Croatia, Belgium, Russia, Portugal, Germany, Czech Republic and Turkey, Compa has also toured Sweden and the United States since the start of 2012.
Ric Baker, better known as Bakir, has been involved at the forefront of the bass music scene in North America since 2008. With the formation of the San Francisco based live dubstep group The Spit Brothers, his solo productions and the founding of Dubs Alive Records, Bakir has been an influential player as a producer, performer, and label boss. He and The Spit Brothers were named one of S.F. Weekly’s Dubstep Ambassadors and have been featured performers at SXSW. His TUBA NYC imprint established in 2010 has amassed an impressive group of artists on its roster, including J:Kenzo, TRUTH, DJG, Compa, Moldy, Daega Sound, XI, AxH, Antiserum, The Spit Brothers, and Prism. The catalog is defined by its deep, forward thinking sound and its constant quality. Now based in Brooklyn, Bakir’s own productions are defined by his love of sub bass, percussion, and dark atmospherics that are further informed by his background as a jazz trumpet player and composer. He has releases on Interchill, Crux, Dubs Alive, TUBA, Brap Dem, Full Melt, Voltage, and Kush Arora Productions.
Boston based producer Ennis Glendon aka Moldy crafts dark, mind-bending sound system music with an unwavering minimal approach. Amidst an ever-changing electronic music landscape, Moldy has stayed true to his sound, refusing to bargain with the mainstream.
“Moldy’s sound has maintained the same anxious, eerie, perverse sensibility that it always has, which has an impact on people on a dance floor that is hard to describe without witnessing it firsthand.” – Dave Q (Boston Globe, 3/14/13).
A veteran DJ of over fifteen years, Moldy is a resident at the long running Boston party BASSIC, where he is currently conducting experiments with a new strain of deviant, slower rhythms of his own design.
Recognized as a pioneer of the US dubstep movement and fixture at the legendary Dub War parties in New York City, his productions have garnered support from top names in the underground, leading to the formation of his Heavy Pressure Recordings imprint in 2006 and releases on labels including ‘Earwax, Embassy, and TUBA.
Boston-based producer Prism (Dave Hanson) has been gaining a lot of notoriety as his career and creative work continues to expand and evolve. Within less than a year he has been awarded two ‘Tune of the Month’ spots in UK Based Mixmag, radio play on BBC Radio 1 by Skream, featured on ITunes’s New & Noteworthy Singles, and received plenty of praise & support from the likes of Mala, Chef, N-Type, Quest, Om Unit, Joe Nice and Appleblim. Already slated for another vinyl release in the fall with remixes by Turkish prodigy Gantz which recently saw play from Vivek at the second Reconstrvct Anniversary, Prism doesn’t seem to be slowing down anytime soon. His DJing isn’t to be underplayed in comparison to his production either; playing alongside such notable artists as J:Kenzo, Squarepusher, Mount Kimbie, Silkie, Kahn, Heny G, Razor Rekta, Cessman, Distal & Wheez-ie to name a few.
Prism is a multifaceted artist. Designing artwork for countless labels, writing & directing music videos for himself and other producers, as well as creating music at a myriad of different genres & tempos, he is certainly one to keep on your radar.
