Stranger Than Fiction: Old Cohorts – New Cohorts: The New Marketplace
Speakers: Russell Voss and Stephen Jenks.
Our April ACE program will inform and challenge us around working with a multi-generational marketplace. We will look around at the changing demographics in our country, and the descriptors we use to describe different cohorts, particularly with regard to Millennials (boomers babies?) who grew up looking at the world differently from their parents!
Stephen Jenks will provide some context to the subject with information from a variety of media sources on the different demographic cohorts. Russell Voss will provide and expand on the “data”, perhaps challenge some notions. Together they will engage us in a discussion on working collaboratively and productively across and within multiple generations, regardless of what title, descriptor or age you are!
Stephen Jenks, a member of the "silent generation", an ACE member and former ACE President, has had a career as a professor of entrepreneurship and new business development and as a consultant to early stage technology-based companies for many years.

Doing Things Right and Doing the Right Thing: How the Triple Bottom Line Can Help Your Clients Save Time, Money,
and (Maybe) the Earth
facilitated by Rachel Bouvier
Participants will learn about and engage with the triple bottom line framework (people, planet, profit), and apply it to a current or proposed project. All participants will receive a worksheet to help them apply the framework in their work.
In this roundtable, participants will: 1. explore the triple bottom line framework; 2. Learn some ways to measure their own or their clients' impact; and 3. engage in a hands-on exercise applying the framework to a current or proposed project.
