Business Studio
8/24/2017 11:45 AM - 1:30 PM
Business Studio: Shift Your Style
August 24, 2017
Business Studio Workshops are designed to give business professionals tools and techniques to make your venture a success! You will still enjoy a great meal and make valuable contacts, but we want your time spent with us to be meaningful for your business, too.
Topic: Shift Your Style
Is it time to dress more professionally or polish up your look? Do you have a closet full of clothes that you never wear, unsure how to use them or whether you should even keep them? A number of recent studies suggest that dressing up for work in a suit or blazer could do wonders for an employee’s productivity, whether going into a negotiation, making a sales call or even participating in a video conference with business associates.
What kinds of clothes qualify as formal or higher-status dress, of course, can depend on the industry or whom you talk to. Style is more than wearing trendy or designer clothes. It’s about having a polished look that flatters and defines you perfectly. We will talk about fall trends and dressing for your silhouette.
11:45am - Registration
Noon - Enjoy lunch and get to know people at your table
12:30 - Speaker and presentation
1:00 - Q&A, shares ideas, thoughts and experiences on topic

Classic Boat Festival
8/26/2017 - 8/27/2017
Antique & Classic Boat Festival
Preserving and celebrating our maritime heritage
August 26-27, 2017 Salem Harbor
http://boatfestival.org/

Peter Vermilya, Curator at Mystic Seaport Museum, has cited the Antique & Classic Boat Festival as an important force in preserving maritime history. Yankee Magazine listed it as a top event in Massachusetts. Maine Boats, Homes & Harbors Magazine has called it “the best of its kind”. The inventory of antique boats is dwindling as more and more fall into disrepair and abandonment. It is imperative to save the few we have left! Through its judging and awards program, the Festival provides incentives and standards for restoring and maintaining antique and classic vessels – our maritime heritage! It also inspires and rewards owners by providing them with a venue to show off their unique craft to the public. Participants are buoyed by picking up tips and encouragement from kindred boat owners and Festival judges. Last, but not least, the Festival is gaining converts among the public, inspiring others to rescue and restore a classic of their own. The Festival educates the public about our nation’s maritime heritage. Attendees get the rare opportunity to see a variety of vintage boats up close, talk with the owners, get the below-deck tour and learn about the restoration process through before and after pictures. This intimate, person-to-person contact is what makes the event so special and differentiates it from the Tall Ships experience. kid_looking_down_hatchImportant, too, the Festival passes an appreciation of boating and maritime heritage on to a new generation. Children are especially thrilled to be able to board a boat and are instilled with the romance of the sea and the dream of owning a boat of their own.
