Denver, CO, November 30, 2012 - At the fall 2012 graduation and public showcase of the Greater Good Academy (GGA), Richard Eidlin, executive director, and Tammy Cunningham, owner of Strings Restaurant, announced the first recipient of the Cunningham Award. Awarded to a graduate of the GGA for a food-related, community-minded business exemplifying the ideals of Noel and Tammy Cunningham, the winner of the Cunningham Award is Beverly Grant, founder of Mo’ Betta Green Marketplace.

“Receiving the Cunningham Award is a distinct honor for me,” said Grant, after the presentation at Mi Casa Resource Center. “It motivates me to continue to support the mission of providing fresh, locally grown food and to educate and serve the Five Points Community. The Cunningham Award embodies commitment and vision for a better community.”

Cunningham notes, "I am, and know Noel would be, honored to have a connection with the Greater Good Academy. It helps folks with a hand up rather than a hand out and empowers, encourages, and promotes entrepreneurial skills, while caring about the community. All of which Noel was about.”

During the eight-week business planning program, the GGA trains civic-minded entrepreneurs to create companies and social enterprises that make money, while positively impacting the environment and communities within which they operate. The goal is to create economic self-sufficiency, create jobs and improve the quality of life in Denver.

Eidlin adds, “We have always seen food as a means of building community. A good number of students have started food-related businesses and many restaurants have contributed dinners, including: Strings, Watercourse, SAME Café, Chipotle, Stueben’s, Avenue Grill, Mercury Café and The Saucy Noodle.

Over the past two years, more than 90 entrepreneurs have completed the program. Support for the GGA comes from the City of Denver’s Office of Economic Development, the Colorado Lending Source, UMB Bank, Colorado Enterprise Fund, Accion and Mi Casa Resource Center.

Two Academies are planned for 2013. For more information, contact: Richard Eidlin, 303-478-0131.

On Workplace Learning and Competitive Advantages: a World Future Society Teleseminar

Springfield, PA, November 30, 2012 - Bill Ringle, popular business growth strategist, CEO of LearnWell, and president of the Philadelphia chapter of the World Future Society, will lead an online panel discussion on the Future of Workplace Learning on December 5, 2012. Guest experts include Joe DiDonato, editor-at-large of eLearning and Government eLearning magazines; Patricia Franklin, former Chief Learning Officer for Vistage International; Kathleen Brush, global management consultant and author; and Lawrence Lerner, founder of Revolutionary Innovator.

The complexity of work in the coming decades will continue to grow, either being supported and driven by technology. In order to keep up, managers and their teams will need to process, understand, and apply new knowledge, skillfully wield new tools, collaborate effectively across more diverse geographic regions and time zones. New and better ways of learning are necessary to enable this inevitable future.

What is the direction of learning in the workplace 10 years from now? Bill Ringle is posing that question to a hand-picked panel of experts from a variety of fields. The group will forecast based on business, technology, finance, communications, and global commerce trends.

“Technology has shifted the playing field in business. Current smartphone capabilities were pure science fiction just ten years ago. We are now able to communicate and share information faster and more cost-effectively with more people than at any other time in history. During this discussion,” Ringle promises, “I’ll be challenging our guest experts to detail their visions of what trends they see in workplace learning so you can gain insights into the risks and potentials ahead.”

During this online panel forum, the group will discuss the specific trends in evidence today that point the way to dramatic changes in workplace learning ten years from now. They’ll also cover which companies and countries are current models of advanced workplace learning, possible characteristics of workplace learning in the future, the dangers of which we should be wary, and much more.

Magazine, is a "roll-up the sleeves" senior executive whose background spans both the for-profit and non-profit worlds and whose experience ranges from staff and management functions to CEO and board positions.
